Flip FabriQue flips, jumps, spins, soars at Sondheim

Sep 21, 2017

Watch as Flip FabriQue – the new cool kids on the circus scene – flip, jump, spin and soar across the Sondheim stage at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 29 at 7:30 p.m.

From bouncing off balance beams to scaling a trampoline wall, “Catch Me!” features daring stunts in a cirque sensation that’s a treat for adults and children alike.

Flip FabriQue, the exciting new faces of Canadian circus, bring a party like you’ve never seen to the Sondheim. Fun, fast-paced and fearless, these acrobats take athleticism and showmanship to new heights.

Experience soaring acrobats, trampoline superstars, mesmerizing hula-hoopers, daring diabolos and spellbinding jugglers in this circus sensation. The Flip performers have astounded audiences around the world with adrenaline-pumping feats of extreme acrobatics, dramatic turns on a trampoline and inventive parkour.

“The young members of Flip FabriQue claim to be French Canadian,” writes a New York Times critic, “but after watching them perform, you may suspect that they hail from a different planet. ... This troupe offers acts that don’t seem humanly possible, like walking up a building face. ... In a signature act, ‘Trampowall,’ members of the group place a trampoline in front of it, bounce forcefully on their backs to a great height and then, with the help of momentum and what must be terrific shoes, walk the remaining few steps up its surface to cavort on a rooflike shelf.”

Movement, strength, and gravity-defying athleticism are bound together by the deep friendships of the performers in Flip FabriQue. The company was created in 2011 by six graduates of Quebec City Circus School, who performed with esteemed companies around the world such as Cirque du Soleil and Cirque Éloize. Their collaborative approach spotlights each performer’s qualities and strengths to create pure magic on stage. “Catch Me!” combines spectacular acrobatics, a one-of-a-kind trampowall and humor in an evening of spellbinding fun.

Tickets for Flip FabriQue’s “Catch Me!” are $44 for Zone 1, $39 for Zone 2, and $29 for Zone 3 and $19 for Zone 4 and $10 for youth tickets.
