This SciFi-inspired duet of acrobatics and live music takes you on a cinematic journey of ultraphysical circus.

O’DD is an adventure story of humanity in the guts of gravity. It plays with the laws of physics until they bend and break. Unknown threats collide with acrobatics beyond imagination.

O’DD is a bold continuum to Race Horse Company’s shows like Petit Mal and EdFringe 2019 favorite Super Sunday.

“Rauli Dahlberg’s brilliant cosmos is sparkling. The soundscape-space-odyssey with sound artist Miro Mantere is a monolith of skill and play. …Visionary circus art.” (Kaleva, 2020)


Race Horse Company

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.

Currently RHC tours with Super Sunday, street circus show Motosikai, children’s circus show Chevalier and the Sci-Fi inspired O’DD.
