SUPER SUNDAY Derby Theatre and Déda in association with Crying out Loud on behalf of Circus Evolution
Derby Theatre Main House Friday 26 - Saturday 27 May
A genuinely jaw-dropping circus extravaganza from the masters of chaos, humour and surprise…real edge of your seat stuff!
Following the storming success of Super Sunday at London’s Roundhouse in 2016, Race Horse Company makes a triumphant return to the UK with this jaw-dropping show, and will play at Derby Theatre for two dates only on Friday 26 & Saturday 27 May.
Super Sunday, suitable for audiences ages 12+, 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!
In 2008, three fearless Finnish acrobats, Petri Tuominen, Rauli Kosonen and Kalle Lehto, set up Race Horse Company to create a new brand of uncompromising and personal contemporary circus. Their rough-and-ready performances are based on the aesthetics of chaos, humour and surprise, leaving philosophy and thinking to the audience.
Staged within a surreal derelict funfair, Super Sunday is a wild whirlwind ride of a show. Six male performers, like beach boy slackers, play out increasingly risky rites of passage. They perform petrifying feats of synchronised trampolining, death-defying human catapulting and daredevil acrobatics on giant seesaws and a wheel of death. Both supercharged and darkly funny, Super Sunday leaves its audiences euphoric. Funny, brave and irreverent, Super Sunday is so exciting that you cannot look away for a second. Edge of your seat stuff!
