The first phase of filming began in April 2021 for seven weeks. The shoot schedule includes: daily life on Maplewinds farm; dancers training with the pregnant mares Roxy and Pegasa; choreographic interludes in the barn and paddock;  the birth of Roxy's foal Lorenzo.

During July and August, the dancers will continue their ground skills training with Carrie to deepen their connection with the foals.  The final phase of filming will take place from September to late October.

 

The Fall 2021 filming will thus capture the progress made in this interspecies experiment. The shoot schedule includes: interludes of unstructured communication; equine training sessions; shaping of choreographic scores with the mares and foals. The project will conclude with live performances for the local equestrian community.
