MNS Kuching Branch like to invite you for a talk on
Stage Director and Actor for Le Cheval Bavard
Horses are a key to the relationship between men and nature.
Horses are teaching us how we may still comprehend our nature.
As an artist, how can horses, and animals on stages,
be real actors, and not just props?
What is human influence on horse, or horse influence on humans?
What about the feelings and subtle interactions that animals reveal?
Le Cheval Bavard experienced last summer what's happening when
horses are considered as artists: painters, dancers, musicians
and what they may teach us as such.
We invited human artists to meet the equine artists.
This was an artistic success, and a human experience.
Without words, a relationship is possible
between men and consenting animals,
in the same way as between men themselves.
As we, humans, may be in the last steps of an irreversible
transformation of our environmental surroundings,
how can we keep our common sense and our links with nature, which
are the bases of our inner balance?
Photographs and videos of our work with horses
in remote French countryside will be displayed
