Addicted to sweat – amazing workouts!
What happens to gym moves when creativity takes over?
Race Horse Company’s show features two gym enthusiasts who pump up their muscles using exercise equipment, with their faces red. The framework of a monotonous workout is shattered when the repetitions of movements start to turn into skilful and dangerous tricks in the hands of the gym enthusiasts. The performance includes juggling, acrobatics with a gymnastics ball, flying kettlebells and a human spinning top.
In the lobby of the City Museum, a juggler will welcome visitors to the exhibition and amaze them as familiar exercise equipment is transformed into unusual equipment for tricks.
Performance times: 17:30, 18:15, 19:00, 20:00, 20:45, 21:30
The programme is part of the ‘Experience Six Museums’ event, which will take place in the museums of Helsinki city centre on 23 November from 17:00 to 22:00. The performances combine multiple art forms to create surprising encounters and interpretations in the middle of the exhibitions – there will be circus, poetry, live music and more. Participating in the event are the Design Museum, HAM Helsinki Art Museum, Villa Hakasalmi, Helsinki City Museum, Kunsthalle Helsinki and the K1 Gallery of the Finnish Museum of Photography. Admission to the museums and performances is free during the event.
