With Blizzard, FLIP Fabrique takes you on a crazy, poetic and gentle journey into the dead of winter and invites you to lose yourself in a moment of complete wonder. With performers at the peak of their art and outstanding visual poetry, Blizzard promises to blow away everything in its path.
This contemporary circus show will inspire the young and the not-so-young to embrace the upcoming winter season with open hearts and enthusiasm.
The Universe of Blizzard
What if winter were to take over?
Not just outside, in the streets and in the fields,
But also in houses, in bedrooms,
Underneath our clothes, and even right in our hearts.
Everything, absolutely everything, buried under the snow,
Obliterated by a white-out.
The north wind freezes time as it flows over us.
Would it be a catastrophe?
Or a chance to start over,
To fix our mistakes?
A new blank page
In the shape of a blizzard.
SEPT 24 TO 28, 2019 — 75 minutes without intermission $20 — $39

What People Are Saying...
Canadian troupe, Flip Fabrique, make circus ultra cool in this stunning, captivating show which unfolds gently over 65 minutes.
It’s as mesmerising as anything you will ever see in a big top, and will delight audiences of all ages.
The young members of Flip FabriQue claim to be French Canadian, but after watching them perform, you may suspect that they hail from a different planet
They weave traditional circus tricks using roller-skates, a giant trampoline and even a snowball fight around a delightful story where the grace and artistry of acrobatic performers who climb as high as the roof of the venue have you on the edge of your seat.
