Pirates of the Carabina (POC) is a new company comprised of 10 British, Irish, Finnish and American circus artists, riggers and musicians. Formed organically out of a one-off commissioned performance for Glastonbury Festival in 2011, Pirates of the Carabina is a group of experienced artists who felt the need for a platform to develop their own ideas, and bring to the stage the qualities, skills and quirks that best expressed their essence. POC have a firm belief that continuing to work from this basis will generate a unique, honest energy that will be felt by the audiences as well as serve as a source of creative drive for new, constantly evolving work.
