An irresistibly charming homage to the magnificent circus horses and the silent movie era. Inspired by the history of traditional horse circuses, the skilful ringmaster performs acrobatics, juggling and balancing with an amazing cast of hobby horses. As the horses take centre stage, part of the story is told in short silent movies. The artist’s innovative and playful work with the hobby horses brings the magic of circus alive! Chevalier won the Finnish Children’s and Youth’s Theatre Award in 2021. Race Horse Company’s Super Sunday was a Total Theatre Award nominee of 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
