High flying, fearless, and fantastic fun, Catch Me is the circus sensation that has astounded audiences around the world with adrenaline pumping feats of extreme acrobatics, dramatic turns on a trampoline and inventive parkour.

It's been ten years since six friends enjoyed a summer of fun and now it's time for them to reunite, catch up and relive the past.  It doesn't take long for everyone's playful outlandishness to resurface.  For one extraordinary weekend, they relive their youth, laughing and teasing each other, enjoying the differences in their contrasting personalities.  This acrobatic reunion is an experience like no other with an incredible display of athleticism and showmanship that is perfect entertainment for the whole family.

Underbelly has built an incredible reputation for bringing the best in international circus to the Southbank each summer with past productions from the likes of Circa, Gravity and Other Myths and Barely Methodical Troupe.

Underbelly director Ed Bartlam comments, We're delighted to be welcoming Flip FabriQue to

London - they're a tremendous company with incredible skill levels, and Catch Me is a joyful, accomplished show that will complement our programme on the South Bank perfectly. We're also excited to be strengthening our ties with Quebecois circus, and continuing to bring the strongest circus shows from Canada to a London audience following on from the success of Cirque Alfonse's Barbu in 2016.

Flip FabriQue is an impressive Quebecois circus troupe, artfully flinging themselves and one another across the stage in an adrenaline-injected hour of acrobatics and dance…  Magnificent moments of very expert human showing off (The List).

Born of the dream of young circus artists in November 2011, Flip FabriQue has since become a must in the circus world, both nationally and internationally. This company has formed itself around the common aspirations of a group of friends from professional circus circles, united to create shows in their image incorporating their personal experiences and exploiting the full potential of each.

Flip FabriQue is formed of Artists of international calibre who have the experience of several hundred performances with, among others, the prestigious Cirque du Soleil and Cirque Éloize. Their shows draw inspiration from their individual and common history and deal with the life choices that they have made.  Behind their artistic vision, there is a story of friendship, real and palpable.

The autobiographical aspect is important: the narrative frame sticks to their lives, follows their experiences, evolves with them. This is how Flip FabriQue reach out to people by sharing the experiences of the public, lives talking to lives, hearts to hearts, bodies to bodies. Flip FabriQue want to communicate joy, play and friendship.

Twirling hoops, daring diabolos, and acrobats soaring through the air are all in a day’s play for Flip FabriQue, the exciting new faces of Canadian circus who make their London premiere with Catch Me.
