Have you got fleas?
It’s amazing ! It’s spectacular ! It’s astounding ! It’s tiny ! The show involves feats of astonishing bravery and breathtaking beauty – acrobatics, trapeze, high wire and more – all performed by highly trained, teeny tiny fleas.

Founded in 2003, PigNut Productions is a children’s theatre company, which creates original performances using physical theatre, clowning and puppetry. The Flea Circus is currently touring around Ireland, and has successfully taken part in numerous festivals including the Galway International Arts Festival.

Meet Lulu, a street artist that can't be contained in any gallery.
Enter her crazy world of make believe, where magic happens right in front of you! Dressed in yesterday's news, this lady will sweep you off your feet and drag you into her imagination. Against a background of madness, scenes unfold, pouring from her pen onto paper, turning the 2D world of sketching into a 3D experience for the child in all of us. Who needs words when you've got a blank canvas, and a marker to fill it.

Francesca Castellano has been working in street theatre and circus for over 10 years. Lulu's world is a combination of her love of clowning, art and physical theatre. This show appeals to all ages and languages. The show lasts 30 minutes.
