This Friday 2nd November, a chance to see Lost Dog‘s Place Prize winning duet It Needs Horses at the Corn Exchange in Newbury, alongside the company’s newest work Home for Broken Turns.  Blackly comic and highly physical dance theatre performed by an international cast of performers from some of Europe’s most reputable dance and physical theatre companies, including Hofesh Schechter Company, Fabulous Beast and Gecko.  It Needs Horses tells the tale of a down at heel circus duet and their increasingly desperate attempts to entertain the crowd…

The glamour has faded, the performers have forgotten their acts, but the show must go on.  Home for Broken Turns follows the characters from this disastrous double act as they leave the circus ring for the last time.  Inspired by Six Characters in Search of an Author, it looks at how fictional characters continue to exist even after the piece that has called them into existence has finished.  The Home for Broken Turns is where these characters gather, watched over by a  fierce matriarch who is both protector and pimp for these lost children of the theatre.
