Hopp och hinder

  • Regionteater Väst

About discovering, mastering and living out your inner hobbyhorse. Three hobby horse riders are born in a hockey rink where the hockey sticks quickly transform into three lively horses. Angelica with C who likes to show up but is afraid to fail, the hypochondriac Velvet Revenge who is 27 with only a few years left to live and the powerful Festis who prefer to gallop outdoors but is afraid to be left alone. Dressage and jumping competitions put both the horses and their riders to the test. 

6-8 years

Motivation of the jury:

With this poised performance, Regionteater Väst takes the audience on a thrilling adventure in the world of horse jumping. The spectrum from laughter and cheer to solemnity and dejection is covered with the help of three riders and their beautiful horses. A magnificent stopover in a game of gravity.
