Since a few years filmmaker Lilo Mangelsdorff documents the work of the choreographer and dancer Martin Nachbar. The Clip "A Horse's Dream" developed during the rehearsal period of Martin Nachbar's solo-piece "Animal Dances". Cut in a very reduced way, with documentary distance but filmed with an attentively observing eye, we watch the dancer in the role of a horse discovering an abandoned piece of woodlands surrounded by walls. This arbitrary dancing adoption of animal movements is formulated on a fine line between motoric analysis and a serious and at the same time subtle humorous representation.
