Urbotek is placed in an alternative shadow world of modern urban culture, as its characters collide with work and search of fulfillment in radical ways. Race Horse Company’s trademark is acrobatics with attitude combined with abstract description of our society. Their ambition is presenting a thought-provoking fresh take on blending the borders of contemporary and traditional circus in ways that are suprisingly touching and thoroughly entertaining.

The artistic company
Race Horse Company was born in 2008 from the need to create an uncompromising, personal and completely new kind of contemporary circus. The rough-and-ready performances are based on aesthetics of chaos, humour and surprise. The company received the Finnish State’s Award for Circus Arts in 2016, and has been on the forefront of the success story of Finnish circus. Internationally toured shows include Petit Mal, Super Sunday, Motosikai and Around.
