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.
