Where is the horse

The story

The story takes place in Canada at the beginning of the 20th century when the horse carriage was replaced by the electric streetcar (tramway). The disappearance of the horse carriage surprised people since they never saw a vehicle move so fast without horses to pull it ! Thus leading them to look under the tramway and ask “Where is the horse!?”. Where is the horse is an analogy to this story and to our history. It reflects the relationship between the ever rapidly evolving modern technologies and the calling to return to simplicity, nature, to our roots and to essential ways of living. It is a tribute to the natural strength of nature before the arrival of the horsepower of modern machines. The horse is a bridge between the ever rapidly evolving modern technologies and the calling to reconnect with the natural elements and the foundations of what it means to be human. It is a travelling journey around the world to heal ourselves. It is an ongoing reflective and creative process. It is about sharing inspiring stories, cultures of the world, traditions, sacred rituals and conscious ways of living with our environment. It is discovering universal patterns. It is an experience through images, sounds and words.

The journey in 4 parts

We symbolically left in an old gas consuming 1980 camper van to gradually change along the way for vehicles using natural “environment friendly” energy. This process represents the incarnation of our quest to find the horse and to reconnect WITH the natural elements. A life journey in four parts :

Part 1 : Ruby :

Representing the transformation of the destructive fire (endless consumption of industrial “modern” society) to the sacred fire that cures

Part 2 : Solvei (Sailboat) :

Representing the reconnexion with the elements of water and wind

Part 3 : Horses :

Representing the healing process to reconnect with our mother earth and asking for forgiveness for all the damage done to her

Part 4 : Our own legs :

Representing the ultimate re-connection with our first and most important vehicle in this reality : our body and our mother earth
