Do you “sea” me? – A sea shanty segue circus show on the high seas!

For a long time now, Perth circus artist Pirateman Michael has been associated with all the cliche’s of piracy. Now, in his most cliche piratical show of them all, he invites you aboard a show of sea shanty sing alongs as he performs some of his best circus tricks. Fireball contact juggling, balancing a crystal ball on his head and choreographed on point light displays.

Debuting at Fringe World 2019, “sea” was awarded a 4 star rating on its opening night. “Sea” is a tale for the young and young at heart (8-14 and parents of) of treasure hunting and the loss we face when going on adventures.

“What makes this show even more heart-warming is Michael’s evident love and joy for his craft: he truly does shine throughout” – Fringe Feed 4 star rating 2019

His shows were very  entertaining and the kids loved his mesmerising hand movement skills with the crystal ball. He was well prepared with props and put a smile on every face he met” – AQWA, Aquarium of Western Australia
