It Needs Horses

Winner of The Place Prize for Dance, sponsored by Bloomberg, in 2011, 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 and the performers have forgotten their acts, but the show must go on.

“Beautifully orchestrated. Thoroughly entertaining” Sunday Express

Directed and conceived by Ben Duke and Raquel Meseguer. Original Cast: Anna Finkel & Chris Evans. Lighting & Set Design: Jackie Shemesh. Costume Design: Holly Waddington
