Håstdans på Hovdala is a film about a unique creation process. In July 2013, The Equus Projects spent three weeks in a Swedish forest creating an evening length theatre work that brought together four dancers, four horses and a cast of Swedish performers with autism. Deep and memorable friendships were forged during the intense 13 days of rehearsal. Equus Projects’ Artistic Director Joanna Mendl Shaw, and cast, shape a moving theatrical portrait of Michael Ehrenbourg: the man who envisioned a hexagonal stone library deep in the Hovdala beech wood forest. Filmmaker David Fishel follows the progression of the creation process, the equine training and the deepening connection that developed between the Swedish and American performers and the human and equine performers. Hastdans pa Hovdala features additional film footage shot by Swedish filmmaker Björn Petersson.
