It Needs Horses & Home for Broken Turns
Lost Dog present a double bill of blackly comic and highly physical dance theatre featuring performers from some of Europe’s leading companies including Scottish Dance Theatre and bgroup.
Home for Broken Turns is the kind of place that makes you dream of running away to the circus. It is home to a group of women who exist on the outskirts, fiercely protective of each other and ready to savage anything that threatens to break up their dwindling pack. The Place Prize-winning It Needs Horses tells the tale of a down at heel circus duet and their increasingly desperate attempts to entertain the crowd.
