SHOWS ON TOUR
"Humanity in the guts of gravity"
O'DD is an adventure story of humanity in the guts of gravity. It plays with the laws of physics until they bend and one can break free from their grasp. Through wordless acrobatic movement and object manipulation, the essence of humanity is altered, the individual is cut into layers and imagined anew.
Chevalier is a solo contemporary circus show based on the world of the traditional horse circus shows performed with hobby horses. The show includes traditional circus disciplines such as acrobatics, juggling, balancing and clownery – all performed with the unparalleled style of Kalle Lehto saturated with humor and the movement quality of a breakdancer. Original music by Sami Tammela and video art by Christoffer Collina.
"Flying men and a van"
Motosikai pushes through absurd scenes of skill, action and laughter with unstoppable energy. The show is a parody of itself and brings quality entertainment and enjoyment to all kinds of human lifeforms. Who would've believed you could fit three acrobats with a teeterboard and so much of twisted humor, endless acrobatic tricks, a cyborg and a ton of other suprises in a simple van?!
"Amazement, laughter and excitement!"
Sirkus ikään kuin ikään was created for touring elderly service centres in Helsinki. The show was directed by Kalle Lehto and funded by the city of Helsinki as part of the city's initiative to further cultural activities and participation of the elderly people.
"Now we've seen something truly spectacular!"
Petit Mal was the award winning co-production of the Race Horse Company and Circo Aereo directed by Maksim Komaro. The show drenched in black humour had critics claiming "after this the Finnish contemporary circus won't be the same!" The show premiered in 2010 and toured extensively around Europe.
"As megalomanic as a penniless can be"
Super Sunday is a boneheaded roller coaster ride that sweeps the feet off the floor. The trademarks of the group are black humour, a crazy approach to everything and unrelenting performers. The show will take you from the bottom to the heavens with huge acrobatic stunts that won't leave anyone indifferent.

"Children's circus at it's finest"
Around is a contemporary circus performance created for children about the life of a small circus group, their mutual relations and overcoming difficulties through co-operation. Plunging headfirst into mishaps, this circus makes the impossible possible!
