Hourglass

Hourglass creates a circus-filled interpretation of our past, present and future.

Flipside Circus’ Performance Troupe transports audiences on a mesmerising journey through time. A lost little boy is discovered by a time travelling circus, and with each flip of a magical hourglass, they embark on an electrifying journey of wondrous new dimensions. With acrobatics, tumbling, Chinese pole and more, Hourglass is an exciting exploration of circus skills combined with the sights and sounds of a different era.

Flipside Circus values children and young people as cultural creators, delivering a model of contemporary circus where young people have agency and ownership. As such, Hourglass has been conceptualised and developed by our troupe’s young performers.

Hourglass is suitable for the whole family. It’s an end-of-year outing not to be missed!
