Spinning carousels, never-ending ropes, a vertical trapeze… Brighton Dome’s Christmas circus show HOME explores the joys of letting go!

Christmas contemporary circus at Brighton Dome has fast become one of the highlights of Brighton’s festive events calendar. It’s a step up from your traditional panto, where moments of genuine heartfelt comedy are in plentiful supply, and a welcome experience for all – from kids to grandad. This Christmas, Brighton Dome presents HOME, an ingenious new circus show from the trailblazing Pirates of the Carabina, the company of world-class performers, musicians and acrobats behind FLOWN – a huge hit at Brighton Festival 2014 and Brighton Dome in 2015.

“We have an act that we call vertical trapeze that it’s unlikely anyone will have seen before.
Brighton Dome’s a great venue for circus and we had a great reaction to Flown with really lovely audiences, so I’m excited about coming back”
Company Director Shaena Brandel

Exhilarating and enchanting, with a lively, moving, metallic set and absorbing live score, HOME delves into the fantastical lives of a neighbourhood of acrobats who, in the course of a day’s misadventures, discover surprising new connections with each other, and with the world outside.

“Exquisite moments of beauty… brilliantly athletic”
The Guardian on Flown

Performed with heartfelt humour and genuine honesty, Pirates of the Carabina bring to the stage all the skills, quirks and qualities that make their shows so much more than the sum of their individual performers. Featuring vertical-swinging trapeze, never-ending ropes, a spinning carousel, and a very temperamental staircase, HOME presents a playful, poignant tale about the futility of grand plans, and the joys of letting go.

Enjoy HOME from Sat 15 – Sun 23 Dec at Brighton Dome.
Tickets from £10, Under 16s Half Price.
