In a time and place where laws are made in the moment and where the individual cannot trust anyone but himself: Five lonesome performers come riding into the light. A long stretch of time where nothing and everything can happen. The clash of five strong wills, meeting in the silence of the witnesses.
While the strong winds of individualism are whipping through our hair ‘Riding a Dead Horse’ seeks to explore the borders between personal independence and being a part of a collective. Can we, while pursuing our individualistic needs, still aim for a common goal?
Created by LIVESTOCK and performed at the Graduation Festival at Norwegian Theatre Academy and at Porsgrunn International Theatre festival, summer 2009. LIVESTOCK also made an artist presentation of the project at Neu Now Festival in Vilnius 2009.
