Before an audience of hundreds on the Historic Quad, the Bates Dance Festival in August presented “Seven Games,” a new work by The Equus Projects. Based in New York City, the organization creates performance pieces that merge the lyricism of dance, the athleticism of riding, and the charisma of horses in action.
