Internationally renowned circus troupe FLIP Fabrique will be bringing their aerial adventures to Underbelly Festival Southbank for a six-week run as one of the headline acts of this year’s jam-packed festival. Inspired by what it means to be a member of a high-flying touring troupe, the company will flip, tumble and spring their way through the ups and downs of being on tour, the friendship and fun of being together, and the transient nature of life itself. With infectious warmth, FLIP Fabrique merge heart-stopping aerial routines, first-class circus skills and a jaw-dropping trampoline-wall, for an audience of children and grown-ups alike.
Underbelly directors Ed Bartlam and Charlie Wood said, “We’re delighted to welcome FLIP Fabrique back to the Underbelly Festival Southbank with Transit. All the way from Quebec to London’s South Bank, they are world-class circus performers who’ll astonish you with their flips and tumbles and warm your heart with their camaraderie and friendship.”
Bruno Gagnon, executive and artistic director of FLIP Fabrique said, “We are delighted to be coming back to Underbelly, Transit is about the ups and downs of life on tour and London is definitely a big up for us! We can’t wait to be on stage, let’s FLIP!””
