"...after watching them perform, you may suspect that they hail from a different planet…" —The New York Times
FLIP Fabrique is a young troupe founded by a group of friends who are at the peak of their talents as professional circus artists. Their shared dream is to create cirque shows that are built in the image of their artists, inspired by their personalities and their experiences. Each performer is the top star of their cirque specialty and uses this new show, Blizzard, to showcase their one of a kind, unmatched skills.
Blizzard brings us an engaging storyline told through dazzling acrobatics, aerial dance, captivating movement, a dash of comedy, and enchanting live music. Blizzard is the story of a group of friends, each one different from the other, like snowflakes, exploring the awe and wonder of a winter storm. Through the lens of their very special and intimate relationship with winter, FLIP Fabrique brings audiences on a crazy, fun, poetic, and gentle journey in the dead of winter and invites you to get lost in a moment of white wonder. With some of the most exciting circus performers of the moment, all original music performed live, and breathtaking visual poetry, Blizzard is taking the stage by storm!
A contemporary circus from Quebec, FLIP Fabrique grew out of the friendship and dream of circus performers in 2011. The company's designs, high quality, and playful shows are punctuated by breathtaking and truly elegant performances.
