Race Horse Company
A gang of three. Storming the European circuit with their first piece for theatre stages, Petit Mal, Race Horse Company comprises Rauli Kosonen, Kalle Lehto and Petri Tuominen – an ex-Gymnast, a breakdancer and a former MMA and cage fighter, respectively. Their circus is rough: rough-edged, but rough too in taking a particular kind of young adult male aggression and outputting it as a dangerous, overspilling energy. The result is an underground, do-it-yourself aesthetic which in Petit Mal had the benefit and balance of nuanced direction from Circo Aereo co-founder Maksim Komaro.
