Queensland’s largest youth circus is getting ready to dazzle Brisbane audiences with their new show, The Flipside Circus Cabaret Show. Flipside is pulling out all the stops with a death-defying circus-inspired night of variety cabaret performances.

The Flipside Circus Cabaret Show promises a wide array of acts including trapeze, clowning, cabaret, contortion and more. The show is devised, choreographed and performed by the Flipside Circus performance troupe directed by Aliya Abisheva, and Davy Sampford with Robert Kronk.

Director and head trainer Aliya Abisheva says “the show combines beautiful aerial and acrobatic routines with hilarious comic acts. It’s fun for the whole family featuring some amazing young performers.”

Aliya has spent more than 20 years performing all over the world. She trained at the Moscow State Circus Academy and toured with the Moscow State Circus, Circus Royale, Silvers Circus, and was artistic director of The Great Siberian Circus, and Circus Olympia.

“Brisbane is home to some of the best circus artists in the world and this is a chance to see our next generation of circus stars showoff their extraordinary skills.”

The Flipside Circus Performance Troupe range in ages from 11 to 17 and come from across Brisbane’s Northside.

Flipside Circus is committed to nurturing and developing Australia’s next generation of circus performers. Participants work with a regular team of trainers as well as international and local guest artists.
