This unusual performance, a playful and poetic meeting of man and horse was a huge success in the spring 2010. It initially started off as an exam perfomance at The Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts, in collaboration with Orionteatern, Stockholm. The black friesian horses, together with the acclaimed horse trainer Suzanne Berdino, came from Cirkus Arena in Denmark.
