O’DD

Race Horse Company

A SciFi-inspired cinematic journey of ultraphysical circus – this fascinating futuristic dream pulls you into another dimension.

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 new kind of direction for contemporary circus, and a bold continuum to the company's hit shows like Petit Mal and Super Sunday.

‘Dahlberg's brilliant cosmos is sparkling – the soundscape-space-odyssey with sound artist Miro Mantere is a monolith of skill and play... [representing] visionary circus art.’ (Kaleva, 2020)
