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?

This was the starting point for City Horses – a dance performance in the city landscape premiering 2017 at Dansens Hus in Stockholm.
It´s a city choreography with 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.

Since the premiere in 2017 City Horses has toured in Sweden, Australia, Denmark, Spain, Germany, Czechoslovakia.
During 2022- 2024 City Horses is proud to be a Big Pulse Dance Alliance co-production.

City Horses is a Big Pulse Dance Alliance co-production, co-produced by Sismògraf Dance Festival (Catalonia – Spain), Julidans (The Netherlands), Tanz im August/HAU Hebbel am Ufer (Germany) and CODA Oslo International Dance Festival (Norway), co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
