A SPECTACULAR NEW MUSICAL BY LINZ KENYON
Blackhorse is a horse powered love story by Okinawan cowboy poet and raconteur Linz Kenyon, and marks a return to a spectacular incorporation of the horse as stage machine – a concept pioneered by Estelle Shook and Linz Kenyon in earlier works like Cowboy King and IOU Land.
Audiences can expect the same gritty, hilarious rural poetry and bust-out-of-the-gates indie rock score that is Linz’s hallmark, as well as spectacular staging featuring six horses and a team of local horsewomen, led by heavy horse pulling champ Joyce Marchant. Blackhorse is the contemporary tale of a BC couple struggling to raise a family, own a home and cope with one parent away at work in the Alberta oilpatch.
