Rompecabezas - Final rehearsals before premiere in Helsinki
Race Horse Company's show Rompecabezas started the final rehearsal period before the premiere in cultural center Stoa in Helsinki on the 26th of October. Tickets are available!
Rompecabezas is an intimate spectacle of three circus artists and one dancer where success hangs by a thread. The name comes from the spanish word for a puzzle or a headbreaker, which describes the show and its creation.
There will be four performances at Stoa (event link) and tickets are available at https://www.lippu.fi/artist/race-horse-company/
The show has three parts where circus artists Kalle Lehto, Guillermo Leon and Poppy Plowman and dancer Minna Liimatainen perform versatile circus skills. The artistic team is literally hanging from their hair and from each other to pull through.Kalle Lehto is an award-winning circus artist, known also for his work as a director for shows Chevalier and Club Carousel. Minna Liimatainen is an outstanding dancer from the Finnish National Opera & Ballet and specialized in hairhanging-acrobatics. Poppy Plowman flies dancing on a tight wire and Guillermo Leon is charismatic master of comedy and juggling.
The atmospheric lighting design is by June Horton-White. Josu Mämmi and Sami Tammela combine jazz and electronic music in their sound design and musical compositions. Tammela is a RHC favorite known for music for the international hit show Super Sunday and Mämmi is a composer and musician boldly combining pop-esthetics with jazz and minimalism and also leads the Josu Mämmi Trio.
