Ex Anima

Like a breath of the soul,
“a horse neighs somewhere,
until the end of time.*”

It has been almost thirty years that horses are adventuring Zingaro’s life style and work by our sides. They are the inspirers of our creations, our source of desire.

In contact with them we have learned to grow wild to receive the lectures they have been willing to teach us, that they are a “memorial part of ourselves**.

For this ultimate creation, I would like to celebrate them as the true actors of this original “Equestrian Theater”… To set up a ritual without memory, a ceremony where the audience will see the animal such as the mirror of humanity.

For this we must learn to strip ourselves of our ego, of our individual body in favor of a shared body, anonymous …  Being a mere presence in the background; becoming “horse puppeteer and with them, discover new lands…
