"Love is the longing for the half of ourselves we have lost." -Milan Kudera
An Expressionist love-letter to NYC, HORSE investigates the containment of personal breakdown and the display of moving forward. Ambition and love serve as conceptual desires; as emblems of success and of failure; and as social behaviors that both entangle and liberate the performers.
