Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, April 2014
Running time 60 minutes.
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.
