The rewarding part of working with Pirates of the Carabina is their constant desire to reinvent and develop their work. Crashing through the conventions of traditional circus they bring with them elements of the old but pull in their own punchy inventions for the 21st century. Live music and personal stories are at the heart of Flown, their first show, which we have helped to shape. Flying every which way on whatever is humanly possible we are supporting the Pirates on their journey forwards, or should we say upwards.
Supporting the development of Flown is part of our commitment to develop UK middle scale contemporary circus. As an active project with the PASS Circus Channel partners, Pirates of the Carabina have participated in two residencies at La brèche, Cherbourg and Lighthouse Poole which has supported skills development, introduced directorial outside eyes and lighting expertise. In addition, Crying Out Loud has supported Pirates of the Carabina with the development of their company and the decision to constitute themselves as a collective. Crying Out Loud produces tours for Pirates of the Carabina in the UK and internationally.
