  • Company Biography

    Born in 2008 out of Petri Tuominen’s, Rauli Kosonen’s and Kalle Lehto’s need to create uncompromising, personal and completely new kind of contemporary circus, Race Horse Company’s rough-and-ready performances are based on aesthetics of chaos, humour and surprise.

    The company approaches circus without questioning, leaving philosophy and thinking to the spectators. Since the very beginning, Race Horse Company has focused on touring, and their ultimate objective is no less than to take over the entire world.

    Crying Out Loud toured their previous hit show Petit Mal.

Super Sunday

Super Sunday  is the newest super-fun show from Race Horse Company, the acclaimed all-male Finnish circus troupe with a reputation for madcap brilliance.

Big on flying, big on skill and big on stomach-churning thrills it is delivered with laidback humour on a stage dressed as a derelict funfair. Against an atmospheric soundtrack, tension builds as the six performers casually propel themselves higher and higher on trampolines, teeterboards and with catapults. A single slip and things could be messy!

Funny, brave and irreverent, Super Sunday  is so exciting that you cannot look away for a second. Edge of your seat stuff!

Considerations
Light hearted Christian religious motifs which may offend permeate Super Sunday.

Crying Out Loud is an Arts Award Supporter
