The Magic of equestrian art is unlocked for you

ABOUT

 

THE CONCEPT

MÂ is an original creation of Gilles Fortier, adaptable and exportable to all types of equestrian staging.

 

SYNOPSIS

MÂ, (the word ‘horse’ in Chinese), is the symbol of speed and stamina. In this performance of around fourteen minutes, man faces an equestrian onslaught, this animal power whose life-force holds us with a magnetic-like attraction.

 

THE ACT

A torrent of intense and precise actions uniting music, fire, equestrian art, haute-école, dance, special effects and acrobatics giving birth an incredible imagery.

 

Gilles Fortier marks his 10th production with a short performance specially created for the Gala performance at the Albi Horse Show in March 2009, combining various sequences inspired by his longer shows.

Since then, the performance is constantly evolving.

ANECDOTES

 

• The original idea of this act is accurate. Offer a range of different actions and scenes on a frenetic musical rhythm with sequences in perfect sync.

 

• This act was originally created for the equestrian scene of Albi in 2009 when the cauldrons were lit by a cast of fire falling from the ceiling. This is the only place where it was possible to achieve this effect. The act was repeated in 2011.
