Pirates of The Carabina – 'Flown'

*** Winner of the Total Theatre Awards for Physical /Visual Theatre Edinburgh Fringe 2013 ***

Pirates of the Carabina welcome you to the world of the unexpected! Life is tough for this touring troupe of incredible acrobats, aerialists, musicians & stuntmen….disagreements, fear & exhaustion all threaten to sabotage the spectacle, and catastrophe is just one wrong move away.

Irreverent and silly, bold and breathtaking FLOWN is a captivating show packed with thrills, laughs and extraordinary physical feats all set to live original music.

FLOWN is brought to you by Pirates of the Carabina, a cutting-edge company of innovative British and international circus artists. FLOWN was originally commissioned by Glastonbury Festival in 2011 and created with invaluable support from the Invisible Circus in their previous creation space at The Paintworks. Following a full-on summer of touring the UK and wowing capacity crowds at Glastonbury Festival, the Southbank & Edinburgh Festival, and Bristol.

Pirates of the Carabina received Arts Council England funding for the development of the show in the summer of 2012. In 2012-2013 Crying Out Loud toured Flown to Scotland, France, Wales, the Midlands, Southampton's Nuffield Theatre, Cardiff's Sherman Theatre and the Lighthouse in Poole along with performances at Creative Common, Bristol. At the Edinborough Festival, Flown won the "Total Theatre Award" for best visual and audio theatre. 2014 is proving to be another successful year for the Pirates of the Carabina. They completed a successful tour of northern France in February and are starting their UK tour in April, 2014. Flown is currently being supported by Crying Out Loud as part of its Artists Mentoring programme and is part of the PASS.
