A group of circus performers from Quebec will be bringing a unique show to the Arts Centre Theatre in Maple Ridge this Sunday.

Flip FabriQue will present its show Attrape-Moi (Catch Me), which is touted as a “high-flying spectacle that includes aerial hoop, aerial straps, banquina, juggling and a trampowall you have to see to believe.”

This young troupe from Quebec City, after more than 200 shows in the past year, including sold out performances at New York City’s New Victory theatre, is drawing raves for the performers’ unbelievable speed, rhythm and technical prowess.

The troupe’s camaraderie was the inspiration for this show about friends reuniting and exploring together.

“Its title, ‘Catch Me,’ seems to refer not only to the aerial antics onstage, but also to an enthusiastic invitation to play. This may be the only circus you’ll ever see that includes a Popsicle-eating contest and an act performed entirely in sleeping bags – most of them worn over the players’ heads. Flip FabriQue projects an irrepressible spirit of fun and, yes, it’s catching,” said a review in the New York Times.

The company was created in 2011 by graduated students of Quebec City Circus School. They performed extensively with esteemed companies around the world, such as Cirque du Soleil and Cirque Éloize.

The company adopts a creative and collaborative approach developed entirely by its artists and director.

This approach spotlights each performer’s qualities and strengths.

Their show is about their friendship and the feelings they have for each other.

The public can still feel their raw emotions even when they perform very high acrobatics and hard circus skills during their performances.

• The show is Sunday, Oct. 18 at 2 p.m.  For tickets see theactmapleridge.org or call 604-476-2787.
