Race Horse Company was born in 2008 out of an artistic need to create an uncompromising, personal and completely new kind of contemporary circus. Race Horse Company's rough-and-ready performances are based on aesthetics of chaos, humor and surprise. The company approaches circus without questioning, leaving philosophy and thinking to the spectators. Their newest production, “Petit Mal”, is built around the idea of black humor and collisions. The traditional form, poetry and soft movement of contemporary circus are challenged through randomness and dream-like logic. The Daily Echo has defined it as “contemporary circus,[where] the performers fuse break-dancing, Hip-Hop, Chinese pole, acrobatics and martial arts creating a visual feast for the eyes that [leave] you open-mouthed in amazement.”
