wilde pferde is an artist collective initiated by Miriam Welk in summer 2010. The first production PhRasen der Dressur - Eine Herde findet ihren Weg is based on the performance PhRasen der Dressur from 2009 and was devoloped in the frame of the artist camp at OSTRALE'010 in Dresden DE.

wilde pferde approach these questions in ways of vision, acoustics, dancing, throughout the borders of individual genres. Their performances unify contemporary dance with acting, sound art, stage and costume design and creates multilayered aesthetics. Wild they are, free and sometimes disruptive. "The wildness forces you to change perspective, to broaden your horizon." And why horses? "Horses are sensitive gregarious animals but still have individual characters. They symbolize freedom and autonomy. Human culture is unthinkable without them. But - wild horses are an endangered species."

PhRasen der Dressur
phRasen der dressur is a music and dance exchange based on questions about discipline, education, breeding, enlightment and horses.
