In our cities, on bronze horses, proud kings quietly stare above our heads. Their history and visual male dominance daily manifested and passed on to the next generation. Where are the women and their stories?
City Horses is a city choreography with about twenty female dancers about power, existence and the female body in the public space, a gallop through cities, a living monument in constant motion, celebrating female courage and power of all ages.

 

The Swedish duo Byström Källblad makes work for the stage, the gallery and the public space. Artist Helena Byström and choreographer Anna Källblad share a desire to tell stories from and based in collaboration and exchange with specific places and its people.Byström is a visual artist from the north, working mainly with film and sculpture, Källblad is a choreographer from the south, with ten years in Los Angeles. Byström and Källblad have shown work in places like a sports arena, a nuclear power plant, Shibuya Crossing Tokyo, Sakakini Art Centre Ramallah, Stockholm City Hall, Uppsala Cathedral, Kulturhuset, The Royal Dramatic Theatre and the Modern Museum in Stockholm.
