Revolve brings together 12 of Queensland’s youngest circus stars with experienced artists and a live DJ to create a show that is bursting at the seams with energy and fun. Highly rehearsed elements are combined with moments of improvisation, as the circus artists play with the DJ and the rhythms of movement and music.
“Revolve is all about children and young people taking charge, it’s about the future, it’s about play and it’s a lot of fun,” says the show’s dramaturge Robert Kronk who is also Flipside’s creative producer. “It’s a bit like circus jazz.”
The show plays on the concept of circles, loops and most significantly wheels, as many as possible jammed on stage! This includes group bike, roller skates, unicycles, roller blades and more. Combined with an awesome soundtrack delivered by live DJ Kitty Gattling, Revolve delivers a good dose of fun with serious circus skill.
Revolve has been commissioned by Festival 2018 and promises fun for the whole family. The show is designed for public spaces.
