FLOWN is the award-winning show from internationally acclaimed contemporary circus company Pirates of the Carabina – known for their daring and beautifully choreographed aerial theatre performances.
Mixing comedy and chaos with bold physicality and live music, FLOWN invites audiences to come inside, to look backstage and delight in the absurdity of contemporary circus life.
Irreverent and silly, bold and breathtaking, FLOWN tells the tale of this motley crew of incredible acrobats, aerialists, musicians and stuntmen trying to get the show on the road. Things go right and plenty more goes wrong – disagreements, fear and exhaustion threaten to sabotage the spectacle, and catastrophe is just one move away.
Featuring hand-balancing, Cyr wheel, tight wire, never-ending silks, flying pole, counterweighted hoop, flying drums, dance and unexpected acrobatic aerial stunts, FLOWN is a captivating show packed with thrills, laughs and extraordinary physical feats all set to an original live soundtrack. And of course, in the end, everything is FLOWN. Even the band!
Rightly feted as a great achievement for British circus, FLOWN will turn whatever you think you know about circus on its head, and is a captivating show for the whole family.
