A performance project created in a Swedish forest with a cast of American dancers, Swedish horses and a talented cast of young Swedish adults with autism.

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. Filmmaker David Fishel follows the progression of the creation process, the equine training, and the deepening connection that develops between the human and equine performers.

JoAnna Mendl Shaw is known for her adventurous site-specific performances, often bringing dancers and horses into shared landscapes. Shaw translates the language of natural horsemanship training into a movement practice that focuses on Physical Listening and applies her interspecies lens to the creation works for proscenium, rural environments and museums.

An internationally recognised dance educator, Shaw has taught at Juilliard, in the Fordham / Ailey BFA program at Marymount Manhattan, Tisch/NYU, Princeton and Mount Holyoke and internationally in Switzerland, Scotland, Sweden, Wales, Hungary, Korea and Japan. She is a Certified Movement Analyst.

In partnership with The Work Room, The Beacon Arts Centre and Dance House Glasgow.
