Pirates of the Carabina: Pirate Taxi

A small scale outdoor circus show with large tales to tell!

Sometimes serious, but more often funny, this is a family friendly outdoor show suitable for adventurers of all ages. Pirate Taxi features Pirates of the Carabina’s trademark mechanically ingenious sets, extraordinary aerial, circus and live music performed in, on and above an old-school London taxi. Drawing inspiration from the true life journeys (travelling, migration and displacement) of the company from Circus to Somerset, the stories of people we meet along the way and the annual migration of birds, the taxi is a travelling trove of stories, notions and ruminations. And there is always room for one more…

Simple Cypher: Roll Up, Roll Up

Simple Cypher’s premiere production Roll Up, Roll Up combines the pair’s passion for circus and hip hop culture through a mash-up of Cyr wheel and juggling with musicality, originality and innovative play. 

Switching up freestyle and highly technical choreographies this performance showcases a mischievous shorthand and unique style formed through friendship, commitment and a shared vision.

Simple Cypher fuse circus and hip hop to create new, uplifting experiences. Simple Cypher is a company built through the foundations of Hip Hop and Circus. Style, originality and unity are key fundamentals of Hip Hop culture and have a profound influence on the work the company creates.

Both shows are family friendly suitable for ages 5+

Bring camping chairs and picnic blanket for outdoor and if rain threatens bring an umbrella.
