Cavalia's Odysseo 2013 - High Energy Performance of Horses at Liberty in Water

"Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong." -Lao-Tzu

I had the privilege of seeing this show a few years ago and it was breathtaking. The stage alone is incredible, with the amazing water pool on the stage. This video shows a beautiful combination of varying gray-colored horses, with riders and at liberty, moving to romantic guitar and violin music. The performance transforms to one of excitement and high-energy when the ridden horses and free horses combine to create a whirl-wind of activity on stage. The end of the video also shows talented aerial dancers performing in the water.
