Description

Race Horse Company's massive international success Super Sunday is colourful, vivid and perky and was born out of the possibility of implementing the company's wildest dreams and bringing them onstage. Super Sunday is an entertaining rollercoaster ride with a boneheaded approach and endless black humour. The show is packed with daredevil stunts on trampolines, teeterboards, Russian bar, human catapults and a Wheel of Death act like you've never seen before!

Great show but for this venue get there early for a seat in the middle seats otherwise limited views. The acrobatic “clown “ is great and is so muscular his swimsuit looks stunning and a little risky

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. If you are dogmatic about Christianity then this probably isn't for you because there is a scene with a reenactment of the crucifixion - it works because the performers don't take themselves too seriously either. This adds to suspense because the stunts don't look humanly possible or remotely safe in parts... yet they nail it every time! Please don't read the bad reviews. No doubt some people's noses are out of joint because there is a cross on stage. The only criticism I have is that they don't sell themselves enough in the description of their show in the Fringe Programme.

I loved this show - I would give it 5 stars. My 16 year old daughter and I saw it together and we both loved it. It is funny, fun and gasp-inducingly-thrilling too. We're recommending it to everyone.

Emma 99 days ago

We loved this show. It's funny and very physical.It kept you on the edge of your seat as sometimes it was hard to watch in case one of the performers made a mistake - but they didnt. We were 3 generations of one family and we all really enjoyed the show - we sat in the front row and were able to watch everything up close. It's not slick but that's part of its appeal - it's exactly the kind of show i hope for at the Fringe.

They had some talent, in the form of 3 tricks which they just kept doing over and over and over and over again. They could have packed all their "tricks" into 15 minutes but instead dragged it out for over an over. I kept waiting for them to push it and doing something really impressive but it was pretty basic.
A lot of people walked out when they started mocking Christianity. It came out of no where and was uncomfortable to watch.

If you want to see impressive tricks, with a well put together, professional level production, this is not for you. If you are amused by hairy men jumping around like 15 year olds for an hour, bash on

Great show. The guys are fun and clearly enjoy what they are doing. Lots of laughter from the audience coupled with amazing acrobatic feats from the six performers. They must have had a lot of fun coming up with the acts. Well worth seeing and much better than Backbone.

Lindy Montgomery 108 days ago

So interesting seeing the different reviews. Just goes to show how different we all are.... We went a couple of nights ago - 2 adults, and 8 year old and a 12 year old. We found it hilarious and really original. the opening scene is just bonkers - it made us laugh a lot. The guys doing it don't take themselves too seriously (which is pretty refreshing for the Fringe, where a lot of people take themselves VERY seriously indeed), and they are clearly having a lot of fun - which is contagious. I think it is one of our favourite shows so far. visually interesting, and I don't agree with a previous review that says the acrobatics were mediocre. We have seen a lot of circus and acrobat acts already this year and these guys are up with the best. Daring and fun. the last scene takes a while to set up and I think they lose their audience a bit as its late and people are tired. But other than that - we would definitely recommend it! We all agreed that it was one of the most original shows we had seen in a few years.

Terrible. Worst show we have seen at the fringe EVER! Not worth a penny or an hour of your life! Not sure why people were laughing or clapping. Very mediocre acrobatics and nothing impressive from start to finish!

Was a Sunday. Wasn't super. Was mediocre.

Absolutely brilliant. Hilarious, trippy, crazy, unbelievable and thrilling. Can’t recommend highly enough

Racehorse Company live up to their reputation with this show (which, if you haven’t seen/heard of them already can be summed up into: unbelievably dangerous and high skill tricks, with a sprinkling of dark humour verging on the absurd).

Edinburgh Spotlight (4/5 stars) 103 days ago

It’s fair to say the performers of Super Sunday spend as much time in the air during this spectacular acrobatic hour as they do on the ground.Trampolines, see-saws, rings of death: the all-male cast bounce, leap and fly far above the big top floor in ever-increasingly impressive displays of stuntwork...

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 106 days ago

If you took Eurovision, made it grow a beard, don a Hawaiian shirt, add a sprinkle of Monty Python and make it circus, you’d have Super Sunday. Race Horse Company hail from Finland and have been touring their daredevil show for the past few years to delighted audiences. Judging from...

Fest (4/5 stars) 107 days ago

Surrendering to this big, racuous all-male circus show from Finland's Race Horse Company is easy. Those who devised and perform in it have got the balance between testoserone and tongue-in-cheek just right. You kind of know to expect the unexpected from the get-go as the six-member cast enter on horseback,...

Super Sunday is a circus show by Race Horse Company, known for their uncompromising contemporary vision. They are of Finnish origin, and have extraordinary flair. What they achieve is a mesmerising and ingenious spectacle. Super Sunday begins with an enormous bare stage, but under a small triangular window the cast...

We open with a somewhat odd set-up. A giant white curtain, torn and dirty in places and then our performers appear, on what looks like homemade horses, come out on their knees. A funny interaction later, I think I know … Read More ...
