Identité

Driven by the stories of our youth artists, Identité explores growing up and navigating the journey to discover yourself.

Flipside Circus presents a contemporary circus piece that explores identity, the innocence of youth and the questions we ask ourselves when growing up:

Who am I? What do I want to be? Where will my identity take me?

The cast of 14 performers aged from 9 to 18 will express their ‘identities’ through amazing aerials, acrobatics and other circus favourites.

“I am so amazed by the students’ progress since I joined Flipside over two years ago. I have watched them grow into confident performers who seem to have no boundaries when it comes to their love and learning of circus arts.” – Director Chelsea McGuffin
