Paloma has always mucked about with Pichón . They run wild. They dress up like tigers, flamenco dancers, queens, kings, rabbits and Lady Gaga. Life is fun and funny and a little bit loopy.

Until, all of a sudden, Paloma comes face to face with a blinding light named Big Luz, and Paloma and Pichón are catapulted into a strange new world.

Created by award-winning theatre-maker Caroline Horton and an international ensemble, Muckers is a funny, magical, physical production. With original songs and a tapas-sized portion of Spanish, this mischievous show asks what it takes to stand proud and be true to ourselves, and how we empower the next generation to do the same.
