Uncompromising contemporary circus
Race Horse Company was established in 2008 with the mission of creating uncompromising and unique circus with no holds barred. The rough-and-ready performances are based on strong acrobatic skills, the aesthetics of chaos, dark humour and surprise.
Balancing the real sense of danger with comedic relief, the extremely physical acrobatic shows have left a huge mark in the world of contemporary circus. Since the very beginning, Race Horse Company has focused on international touring with their hit shows like Petit Mal (2010) and Super Sunday (2014). The team quickly became one of the most internationally touring Finnish performing arts companies and the founding members were awarded with the State's Circus Award in 2016 for their uncompromising work and risk-taking.
