Attrape Moi Ed2016

No need for drumrolls or ceremoniously performed circus acts. For Flip Fabrique, the stage is a playground where high-level acrobatics and parkour are the natural vocabulary. In a nonchalant way, with their casual clothes and childlike energy, these six performers show off incredible trick after incredible trick to the beat of pumping music, leaving the audience breathless. But it is not just acrobatics: it’s their inventiveness and charisma. The show is presented as the reunion of a group of childhood friends – a setting that opens the door to some sweet nostalgia, playfulness and jokes that weave the acts together with humour. ‘Attrape Moi’ is thrilling and electrifying, probably one of the best circus performances I have ever seen.

Assembly Hall, until 29 Aug.
