Tell us more about your creative business...
Riverhorse is a multi platform media and communications company. Our primary aim is to produce creative and original documentary content for international distribution and broadcast. We also carry out a range of consultancy and media training work. We specialise in working with ethical businesses and the public and not-for-profit sectors in providing creative solutions to communication issues. Based in Manchester, England, Riverhorse is a small organisation with an international perspective that places quality and professionalism over pure commercialism. Our work has been broadcast nationally, including the UK’s major channels, and internationally, and our clients have ranged from the Department for International Development, to Marketing Manchester and the Co-operative group. Our slogan is 'ideas that happen' because we believe in applied creativity. We believe in the power of ideas but understand the dedication and commitment that is required to deliver on them. And we make things happen. In a media-saturated world dominated by mainstream ideas and presentation, we think it's important that different perspectives and different voices are heard. Digital technology provides us with opportunities to achieve this that simply weren’t possible in the past. Riverhorse seeks to tell original stories in original ways, that say something about the wider world around us. Although we focus on current affairs and popular culture documentaries, we aim not to be too proscriptive. We are interested in ideas and people - a deep well for inspiration. We embrace change and see the manifold possibilities of the digital future: new ways of communicating, connecting, of telling stories and understanding. We are always keen to hear from like-minded people and companies who share our enthusiasm for ideas and our commitment to quality.

Tmesis Theatre (“Physical theatre of the very highest standard” The Stage) are performing at the Studio at Manchester Royal Exchange from 3rd – 6th Mar.Tickets: £4.75-£9.50 Box office: 0161 833 9833 or www.royalexchange.co.uk
The Dreadful Hours combines Tmesis Theatre’s Yorgos Karamalegos and Elinor Randle and their trademark physicality with new writing from acclaimed Northwest playwright Chris Fittock, in a darkly comic drama that explores the quiet crumbling of love’s first flourish through the lifetime of one couple’s relationship. Peepolykus’s master of the ridiculous Javier Marzan directs a wonderfully inventive production full of dark humour and striking visuals.
“Rarefied… intriguing… performed with exquisite precision.” The Guardian. (For Tmesis)
"Strong, innovative, and combining comedy and tragedy in a most creative fashion. Definitely worth the ticket price and will have your mind ticking as you sit down for dinner the following day” Liverpool Live
