"urban contemporary circus"

Race Horse company's Urbotek toured in 2017-2019.


Urbotek explores life and survival in an alternative shadow world of the modern society.  In the midst of dark urban surroundings, mouse-traps and plastic waste, the characters search for personal fulfillment in the most extreme ways.

Urbotek builds hypnotic scenes through acrobatics and repetition, combining suspense,  continuous movement and virtuosity. The original music and lighting design creates a multilayered pulse of the city and urban ambience, as the artists excel in their physical raw approach to acrobatics on teeterboard, Cyr-wheel and Washington-trapeze.

“Urbotek is cruel, bone-headed and hypnotic…” - Turun Sanomat

“Perfect first show for the new audiences of circus!” - Audience feedback
