Offering a high-flying, high-energy venture for the whole family, beloved circus company BrainFools are adorning their colourful wings and taking Lucky Pigeons to a town near you! Using polished contemporary circus skills and irresistible charm, this production tells a surreal fable about the pecking order of urban society, featuring jaw dropping juggling and dazzling aerialist tricks and lifts!

Lucky Pigeons follows a young businesswoman struggling to keep up with the non-stop helter-skelter of the big City. When she loses her corporate job, she takes her frustration out on the ever-present population of the city streets: pigeons. Conjuring the unearthly world of a flock of energetic, colourful and curious pigeons, birds of a feather flock together as her Saville Row suit turns to iridescent feathers and she grows a beak. She discovers a playful, misunderstood world from a bird’s eye view.

What started as a deep passion for theatre, movement, and storytelling has blossomed into an inspiring vision of an ecosystem of performing arts. BrainFools is on a mission to push the boundaries of traditional circus arts and inspire audiences to dream big.

Come and witness circus arts performances reimagined, both acrobatically and metaphorically, as BrainFools brings you Lucky Pigeons. It’s an event you won’t want to miss!

Duration: 30 to 45 minutes
