Stealing Sheep – Apparition

This video piece is Dutch folk music. The lines of dancers opposing each other, the synchronized clapping of hands and movement of feet remind one of American folk music, especially Appallachian folk music or square dancing. But this appears to tell the story of the stealing of sheep, one by one, with the dancer with black sheep or goat with horns. I’d be interested in comments.
