HEARD comes alive as a large-scale community performance, each horse is brought to life by two dancers who develop its behavior and character and involves a group of individuals working together to become something larger – firstly as a pair, and then as the ‘herd’. HEARD relies on the strengths of the individual and the massed group. Similarly, the choreography shifts from free-form improvisation to a trained body of dancers moving in unison; open-ended creativity and co-ordinated structure are of equally critical value, as they are within our society as a whole.
