A completely jaw-dropping spectacle. Three Weeks
Emotionally exquisite. The Times
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.
Irreverent, 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 unexpected mishaps threaten to sabotage the spectacle, and catastrophe is just one move away.
Mixing comedy and chaos with bold physicality and live music, FLOWN bares all – pulling back the curtain, and giving the rigging and technicalities of circus centre stage. FLOWN Invites audiences to come inside, look backstage and delight in the absurdity of a life in the air and swinging off rafters.
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.
And of course, in the end, everything is FLOWN. Even the band.
