I’m a dreamer. I often have very vivid, memorable dreams as I lay my head on my pillow at night. Each time I photographed the show, I had a similar dream about running free with horses. My heart was alive and in rhythm with these beautiful, majestic creatures. I awoke feeling overwhelmed by how much I love them.
I would have to say that the second half of the show yielded most of my favorite photos. I LOVED the scene with all the white horses moving seamlessly together in formation. And the autumn-themed scene where a lone woman commanded complex moves from a herd of beautiful bay horses. And the trick riding, where brave men and women do acrobatics on horses running at a full gallop! And the snow scene, where handsome men on white horses interact with dancers suspended in mid-air. I could go on, but I’ll let the photos draw you in deeper.
For those who don’t know, Cavalia is similar to a Cirque de Soleil production. Before seeing this show, I had not ever seen a production like this in person, only on television. I wanted so badly to see one, but just hadn’t had the opportunity. To be able to not just see a show, but photograph it, was beyond what I could have hoped for! I would encourage anyone who has even a remote interest in horses, music, or a high quality circus experience to go to Cavalia. It is currently in Seattle, and heads to Portland next. They are also launching a new show called Odysseo, that I can’t wait to see! It opened yesterday in Atlanta and heads to Miami after that.
He’s picking up a handkerchief here. WOW!
I love their faces as they do these rides – so intense!
How much do you love this horse’s coloring?
Look at the muscling of that horse!
I honestly don’t know how she doesn’t get the back of her head bashed in. This part will leave you breathless!
Reminds me of that scene in the first Spiderman movie. 🙂
I was so sad to see it all come to an end!
Thanks for looking at my photos! 😀
