Pirateman Michael – A treasure trove of talent!
An outlandish vagabond from another world…
Specialising in nautical nonsense and sea shanty shenanigans, Pirateman brings a treasure trove of talent anywhere he goes! From crystal ball “contact juggling”, LED circus arts and puppet characters quite literally hiding in his sleeves, Pirateman is sure to leave land lubbers bewildered with delight. He doesn’t steal treasure, he only takes a piece of your imagination and heart with him as he sets off to his next adventure bringing joy, glee and magic from the seven seas.
Voyaging across Western Australia from Exmouth to Esperance,, Gascoyne to Geraldton, Kununurra to Kalgoorlie and everywhere in between. Pirateman has travelled and performed interstate at the Adelaide Fringe, Port Douglas Carnival, Darwin Fringe, Port Fairy Folk Festival, National Folk Festival and internationally to London, Canada and the USA.
