Roberto Dutesco, Peter Tunney and Jennifer Muller/The Works present DANCING WITH
WILD HORSES, a multi-arts installation featuring Jennifer Muller's Island, inspired
by Roberto Dutesco's passionate photography of the Wild Horses of Sable Island on
Thursday, April 30, 2009 at 7:30pm (doors open at 6:30pm) at 530 W. 27th Street
(formerly Spirit and Twilo nightclubs), NYC. Suggested donation is $20, benefiting

Peter Tunney has created a dynamic environment showcasing a 40-foot long installation
of photography of the haunting images of Sable Island created by Roberto Dutesco.
The Works will perform Island in front of the dramatically lit installation. Island
premiered at The Joyce Theater in 2005.
Roberto Dutesco created haunting images of the horses on Sable Island - horses that
existed without human intervention or interference since their shipwrecked arrival
on the island. Taking its cue from the physical motion, social interaction and
imagery of these wild horses and what they represent as an increasingly rare natural
phenomenon, the piece is a paean to an unfettered, untamed state of being. This
atmosphere of abandonment is contrasted with an "island reality" of being trapped
within a proscribed and confined space. The piece opens with a lone stallion, soon
to be joined by a herd of horses. As the dance progresses, the horse imagery
into symbolic human interaction characterized by passion, yearning and a desire
to be free.
Original music by Marty Beller, costumes by designer Sonja Nuttall with wigs by
Vidal Sassoon, lighting design by Jeff Croiter.
