“Rules are meant to be bent and everything is up for grabs” Race Horse Company continues to push the boundaries of acrobatics and physical comedy in an over the top extravaganza set in a derelict workshop space in the outskirts of a busy town. The show features an unlikely fellowship of anti-heroes that make a hazardous adventure out of the most mundane activities in a display of the rugged and creative side of humanity. Tattarmossen Experience explores the limits of failure and the absurdity of contemporary circus itself is laid bare on stage. The international ensemble of circus artists, comedians and a musician spare no punches as they combine different genres of comedy from sketch, screwball, and slapstick to internet meme culture with physical mastery and disastery.
Race Horse Company was established in 2008 with the mission of creating uncompromising and unique circus with no holds barred. The rough-and-ready performances are based on strong acrobatic skills, the aesthetics of chaos, dark humour and surprise. Balancing the real sense of danger with comedic relief, the extremely physical acrobatic shows have left a huge mark in the world of contemporary circus. Since the very beginning, Race Horse Company has focused on international touring with their hit shows like Petit Mal (2010) and Super Sunday (2014). The team quickly became one of the most internationally touring Finnish performing arts companies and the founding members were awarded with the State's Circus Award in 2016 for their uncompromising work and risk-taking.
