LORENZO will headline ADRENALINE with his show Emotion. He has performed numerous times in the UK with his Action show, but this is his debut with this act in London. For the first time Lorenzo will be accompanied by a full line-up of other world-leading equestrian artists, many of whom have not performed in the UK before – making this a unique opportunity, eagerly anticipated by the horse world. At the end of the show all of the acts will perform together in a grand finale – oh and there are a few surprises in store on the night too. Don’t miss out book now while seats are still available.
GILLES FORTIER will perform ‘Ma’ with his troupe Zarkam.’Ma is a number that is designed to ensure the audience does not get bored. It is a series of short tableaux, each one of which is very different from the last. In some ways it is a showcase of my work; a subtle mix of lighting effects, dance, acrobatics, modern lance work, special effects and classical dressage which will, I think, give the London public a very special and beautiful experience.’
CLÉMENCE FAIVRE-‘I will be presenting the Freedom show with Gotan, without leads and with total freedom. It is the mixture of cultures and horse riding that I like the most. There will be reference to the style of the Haute Ecole with the Spanish walk and rear up, the style of the classic dressage with the piaffe and foot changes in tempo, and also the style of Doma Vanquera with the pirouettes and quiebres.’
LOS RIOS - ‘We will present our show “Oxygene” which we save for very special occasions and has only been performed twice before. The show is an alchemy of three different disciplines: classical dressage, vaulting and Cossack riding with some acrobatics both on the ground and on horseback. It is a high impact exciting show that we hope will be thrilling to our London crowd.’
JOEL CHACON – ‘I have admiration for current artists but my inspiration comes from old artists such as Savata. The first time I saw him he was performing acrobatics on horseback. Charlie Chaplin inspired me as well. I love everything that is burlesque.In London I plan to bring the audience into my world, a world full of humour and burlesque as well as poetry.’
HAP Ô TEMPO - ‘Caught in a game of seduction between two antagonistic characters on their horses, the audience will be transported through a wave of emotions through beauty, sensuality and excitement. A performance which combines traditional circus acrobatics and Djigitovka (Russian Cossack vaulting). This will be a fresh and original show bringing together these two arts for the first time in the same routine.’
