BY FLIPSIDE CIRCUS
Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, April 2014
Running time 60 minutes.
circus celebrates youth artists by exploring the notion of support in circus.
Using the physicality of both traditional and contemporary circus methods, Flipside challenges the boundaries of a typical circus show and plays with the concept of support. CircUS is about US – the young people in circus.
In 2014, CircUS was the exciting follow-up to the Easter season’s hit Identite. It was a collection of gravity-defying, exciting, fun acts that kept our audience on the edge of their seats.
