Mix at Six: FLIP Fabrique
February 21 @ 6:00 pm
Returning to Chicago for the first time since 2014, FLIP Fabrique takes the Harris stage with their newest production, BLIZZARD, which explores the Canadian company’s intimate relationship to winter. Surrounded by a totally white room, eight performers contemplate the possibilities of a blank space before launching into a flurry of acrobatic maneuvers — acro, yo-yo, hula-hoop, aerial, trampo-wall, diabolo, clowning, and even more of their own invention. In the production’s unique twist, an onstage pianist accompanies the troupe’s dizzying display, playing in counterpoint and revealing the piano as a circus apparatus in its own right.
