Flip FabriQue
Catch Me!

50 minutes

Flip FabriQue is an impossibly cool experience for young theatregoers. The French-Canadian troupe, founded by a group of friends who are professional circus artists, combines high-flying aerial antics with the gravity-defying, one-of-a-kind trampowall. Catch Me! is filled with dramatic movements that demonstrate mental focus, confidence, trust, and teamwork. Flip FabriQue’s dream is to unleash the artists’ full potential through the creation of circus shows that reflect unique images drawn from their personal experiences.
