About "Together: Dancing with Spinner Dolphins"
“When you approach dolphins with dance, they recognize it as intelligence. Meeting a wild dolphin eye to eye, it’s hard not to want to be more like her — more wild and more a part of the natural world.”
The Dolphin Dance project brings together talented human dancers and wild dolphins to create collaborative, inter-species artistic expressions - underwater ‘dances’ and films that document them. Inspired by the potential for profound inter-species communication, using the techniques of improvisational dance in place of words, we approach the work as a true collaboration between equal minds. "Together: Dancing with Spinner Dolphins" won "Best Experimental Film" at its world premiere at the Big Apple Film Festival. The film depicts the tender relationship forged between a human and a wild Spinner Dolphin through the language of dance.
About The Equus Projects Documentary
The Equus Projects Documentary is a short, non-narrative piece featuring the work of The Equus Projects and JoAnna Mendl Shaw. The company expores the kinetic relationship of dancers and horses.
The Equus Projects partners professional dancers with horses and their riders to create site-specific performance works that merge the artistry of dance with the athletics of equestrianism. The company creates works for arts and equine venues that are virtuosic and diverse, and exchanges dance and equestrian pedagogy with members of each field, to establish an interdisciplinary performance language.
