IMPRINTED captures an extraordinary occurrence:

The co-creation of a choreographic language between

three dancers, two mares and their newborn foals.

JoAnna Mendl Shaw

IMPRINTED chronicles the first moments of life of two newborn foals and the genesis of an interspecies dialogue.  Three Equus Projects dancers merge improvisation with natural horsemanship to bond with mares and their foals.   This human-equine dance translates behaviour into shared language and play into choreographic dialogue.

This is a story about listening, compassion and interspecies communication - themes that have powerful resonance in 2021, as the world emerges from a devastating pandemic. Humans must discover how to connect beyond 24/7 news feeds and invest in our capacity for non-verbal, physical listening.
