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…

Prodigal UPG: Zoo Humans
A response to the shocking fact that over a third of young people in the UK spend less time outdoors than its prisoners, ZOO HUMANS sees The UPG Team bring their distinctive performance-parkour and Attenborough’s smooth narrative to a group of humans on the verge of forgetting how to move. As they slowly become aware of the artificial world in which they’re living, they must decide if they’ll swap touch-screens for human contact and risk the comfort of their cage for the lure of the great outdoors.
Both shows are family friendly suitable for ages 5+
