Super Sunday Circus Tumbles into Brighton Dome this Christmas
22 Oct 2019
Delivering daring stunts blended with chaotic comedy, Super Sunday is Race Horse Company’s international hit fresh from critical acclaim at Edinburgh Fringe.
With high energy acrobatic feats and barely controllable chaos, Super Sunday promises non-stop family fun, original music and a visual riot of colour, set in an imaginary amusement park filled with trampolines, giant seesaws and human catapults.
The Finnish performers have developed the show without a director, resulting in a trick-fuelled show with unexpected surprises. The highly-skilled acrobats bring their own imagination to the stage, learning new skills and testing their own boundaries, and bizarrely the strength of clingfilm!
Super Sunday begins with modern cowboys trotting out on horses wearing nothing but Hawaiian shirts, later a fearful teddy bear joins the group and a swimsuit clad gymnast is sent flying through the air. Surprises include breakdancing and martial arts as well as gravity defying stunts.
Antti Suniala, Race Horse Company Producer said:
‘We're excited to be performing at one of the UK's most distinguished arts venues, Brighton Dome. Super Sunday is a show that, even after 150 performances, is intoxicating and fun for the artists themselves. We think there's nothing better than to hear the laughter and screams of joy from the audience during our show. We can’t wait to bring it to Brighton this December.’
Since premiering the show, the company have toured internationally, making a mark on contemporary circus with their unique combination of surreal comedy and phenomenal acrobatics. Following a successful European tour, the group visit Brighton Dome over the festive season across two weeks this December.
'Race Horse Company are a troupe of the most dexterous, skilful human beings you may ever have been in the presence of. Add to that, the often dry and abstract humour, and you find yourself laughing and gasping in equal measure.’

‘This show is the best show I have EVER seen at the Fringe and I have been coming for over a decade. It takes a lot of skill to pack humour, death-defying stunts, artistry and stunning physical theatre into one show - but the Racehorse Company get a perfect balance. The show subverts what you know circus to be and has you on the edge of your seat throughout.’
