Horses for Courses (1998/99)

Inexhaustibly skilful clowns. This terrific trio are the most inventive and joyful act around.
The Sunday Times

The Anglo-Siberian Cultural Foundation hosts a gala evening of traditional and frankly ‘top drawer’ Siberian acts.

Horses for Courses was the result of our love of Chekov. It stayed in the company’s repertoire for two years touring throughout the UK and Ireland and marked the end of a body of work – a triptych, no less – that explored issues associated with the throwing of assorted food products at John. Peepolykus send a big shout out to the Arts Council for enabling Peepolykus to explore this material and for their ongoing support in the company’s quest to perform telematic and remote connection work whilst developing vision around new projects involving the live body, data and space to stimulate further discussion on tele-presence and inter-authorship in creative practice. That’s an A level now.

The three-man team responsible for last year’s madcap smash hit I Am A Coffee, have once again given birth to a dazzling kaleidoscope of nano-second perfect timing, audacious irreverence and monstrous stupidity.

You should see Peepolykus today if you want your faith in the live medium restored.

Performed by John Nicholson, Javier Marzan and David Sant
Directed by Cal McCrystal with additional direction by Ezra Hjalmarsson
Devised by Peepolykus with the directors
