"Danse avec les chevaux"

After having played with the French actress Mathilde Seigner in a movie called "Danse avec lui”, Jean-François Pignon invites us in a "Danse avec les chevaux", his new show based on poetry, gentleness, emotion and humor.

The artist and his 14 Iberian free horses make us discover a succession of scenes which illustrate the perfect communion of two beings: man and horse.
