Pieter Toerien presents Peter Schaffer's iconic psychological thriller, Equus, a visual dynamic exploration into the complex relationships between devotion, myth and sexuality. This gripping new production is directed by Fred Abrahamse and stars Sven Ruygrok as Alan Strang, Graham Hopkins as Dr Martin Dysart with Monique Basson, Maggie Gericke, Andrew Roux, Mark Goldberg, Cassandra Mapanda and Len-Barry Simons.
When teenager Alan Strang's pathological fascination leads him to brutally blind six horses in a Hampshire stable, psychiatrist Dr. Martin Dysart is tasked with uncovering the motive behind the boy`s violent act. As Dysart delves into Alan's world of twisted spirituality, passion and sexuality, he begins to question his own sanity and motivations in a world driven by reckless consumerism.
Abrahamse's long-time collaborators, Marcel Meyer and Charl-Johan Lingenfelder join the creative team as designer (Meyer) and composer (Lingenfelder) while celebrated choreographer Mark Goldberg (Mozart and Salleri and The Vortex) creates specialised movement and choreography for this exciting production.
