Through the lens of their very special and intimate relationship with winter, Cirque FLIP Fabrique takes audiences on a crazy, fun, poetic, and tender journey through winter, inviting them to get lost in a moment of white wonder. BLIZZARD is a new gravity defying spectacle featuring acrobatics, juggling, and aerialist techniques in this high-flying cirque sensation.
With some of the most exciting circus performers of the moment, original live music, and breathtaking visual poetry, BLIZZARD is taking the stage by storm!
FLIP Fabrique grew out of the friendship and dream of circus performers in 2011. The company designs high quality and playful shows punctuated by breathtaking and truly elegant performances.
With more than 700 performances to their credit and with shows such as Attrape-moi , FLiP in Berlin and Transit , in more than 15 countries, FLIP Fabrique is made up of world-class multidisciplinary performers. They have worked with the prestigious Cirque du Soleil and Cirque Éloize, and taken part in many international circus festivals. FLIP Fabrique presents its next creation, BLIZZARD, in the summer of 2019.
Whether in conjunction with the Ville de Québec for its summer shows Crépuscule and Féria, seen by 350,000 people over the four seasons 2015 to 2018 – or through its many artistic collaborations, FLIP Fabrique brings a fresh take on contemporary circus, coupled with an uncanny ability to have fun and move an audience. They translate from life to life, from the heart to the heart, the body to the body.
Steven Hoffman, Executive Director at the Norton Center for the Arts:
“When the Norton Center presented Flip FabriQue in 2017, the show was met with all of the “oohs” and “ahhs” that one would expect with a highly theatrical cirque spectacle. Now with a brand-new show, families can enjoy the return of this very special and exhilarating gravity defying experience.”
