On Thursday, Oct. 8, Breckenridge Creative Arts will present “Catch Me!,” a contemporary circus production by the Quebec-based company Flip FabriQue, a sextet of young, highly-skilled Canadian acrobats drawn from the prestigious Cirque du Soleil and Cirque Eloize. The show comes to Breckenridge following its sold-out, critically-acclaimed, off-Broadway run earlier this year, making its Colorado and West Coast premiere at the Riverwalk Center for a one-night-only performance.
Hoops twirl, diablos whirl and acrobats soar — all in a day’s work for Flip FabriQue, the new kids on the circus scene. Fun, fast-paced and fearless, this nouveau cirque crew takes athleticism and showmanship to new heights in this high-flying spectacle. From bouncing off balance beams to scaling a trampoline wall, “Catch Me!” features death-defying stunts in a crowd-pleasing cirque sensation for adults and children alike.
Based in Quebec City, Flip FabriQue was founded by a group of friends who all studied at the Ecole de Cirque de Quebec. After more than 200 shows in the past year, including a tour through Germany, Brazil, France, the Netherlands and Canada, as well as a six-month run at the Chameleon Theater in Berlin and a four-week run at the New Victory Theater in New York City, this company shows no sign of slowing down. Flip FabriQue is now touring throughout Canada and the United States.
“Catch Me!” is directed by Olivier Normand and features Jeremie Arsenault, Jade Dussault, Bruno Gagnon, Christophe Hamel, Françis Julien and Hugo Ouellet Cote. The design team consists of Elyane Martel (set design and props), Veronique Bertrand (costume design), Judith Dufour Savard (lighting design) and Mathieu Campagna (sound design).
The Breckenridge engagement of “Catch Me!” is part of a new performing arts series titled BCA Presents, a program of year-round concerts, lectures and special events presented and hosted by Breckenridge Creative Arts and sponsored by the town of Breckenridge.
