FLIP FABRIQUE is a circus company based in Québec, Canada. Born out of the dreams and the friendship of circus performers in 2011, this troupe is renowned around the world for its beloved production setting astonishing feats to true visual poetry.
Composed of world-class artists, the troupe crafts contemporary circus shows with an uncanny ability to have fun and move the audience. In addition to its large-scale shows presented every summer in Québec City since 2015, the troupe is performing around the globe in the most prestigious circus institutions and festivals.
From founder Bruno Gagnon:
When I was small, my mother always told me: “Stop jumping, stop running about, calm down, and stand still for 2 minutes.”
And, of course, I knocked something over when I tripped on my shoe laces; I broke a glass when I spilled my orange juice … “I told you so,” she said.
15 years later, I still play around whenever I can. I throw objects in the air, I juggle with my eggs in the morning, I leap about everywhere; my friends throw me into the air and catch me just for fun.
I can still hear my mother saying, “Be careful, don’t go too fast, watch where you’re going …”
More often than not, adults have forgotten how to play and have fun. How to play in the bath, to make music while cooking, to dance to the sound of music… Somewhere along the line, certain ones among us lose their inner child; the one who amazes us, delights us, fills us with happiness and keeps us alive.
Oh my, what do we have here?
A bag full of oranges, a big red balloon, a swing, a slide, a diabolo, a trampoline…
Come on, let’s have some fun….
– Bruno Gagnon
“This troupe offers acts that don’t seem humanly possible.” – New York Times
“An unshakeable demonstration of human resolve and a rare opportunity to experience the breadth of Quebecois circus. Invok[ing] the ancient art of commedia dell’arte to choreograph a madly entertaining show with expertly timed delivery that folds seamlessly into head-shaking acrobatic arrangements.” – The Santa Barbara Independent
