In the midst of a Midwestern deep freeze, perhaps you’ve asked yourself—has winter taken over? Has the frost crept across the fields, down the streets, maybe right into our very homes or even our own hearts? Quebec’s youthful, fearless, masterful Cirque FLIP Fabrique asks just that in a magically poetic cirque-style expedition that’s taking worldwide stages by storm. As live music sparkles in the air, snowballs soar aloft and are met with high-flying acrobatics, remarkable contortions, and the curious possibilities that become clear just when it looks like white-out conditions have arrived. Bundle up and come join us!
