New York, NY (March 4, 2015) – The wild, witty and wonderful Catch Me! (Attrape-moi) features the six young talents of Flip FabriQue, an up-and-coming troupe from Quebec City, Canada, whose members have performed with Cirque du Soleil, Cirque Éloize, 7 Fingers and more. As the company’s premiere show, Catch Me! (Attrape-moi) makes its Off-Broadway premiere at The New Victory Theater for a four-week run from March 28 – April 19, 2015.
Fun, fast-paced and fearless, Catch Me! (Attrape-moi) takes athleticism and showmanship to new heights in this high-flying spectacle that highlights the artists’ individual talents, including aerial hoop, aerial straps, banquina, juggling and trampowall, among others. Inspired by their real life story, the premise of the show is simple: six friends find themselves together after ten years apart. This promising young troupe, lauded for their unbelievable speed, rhythm and technical prowess, was founded by a group of friends who all studied at the École de Cirque de Québec. With a bond of friendship both on and off stage, the performers pack all the joy of a summer’s day into a raucous 75 minute performance about camaraderie.
Flip FabriQue, the creative minds behind Catch Me! (Attrape-moi), are the new kids on the circus scene. Flip FabriQue aims to create innovative circus shows that reflect their unique group dynamic while also showcasing each member’s full potential. After more than 200 shows in the past year, a very impressive tour through Germany, Brazil, the U.S., France, the Netherlands and Canada, and a recent six-month run at the Chamäleon Theater in Berlin, Catch Me! shows no sign of slowing down. Following their New Victory run, the company will tour throughout Europe and Australia.
Directed by Olivier Normand, Catch Me! (Attrape-moi) features Jérémie Arsenault, Jade Dussault, Bruno Gagnon, Christophe Hamel, Françis Julien and Hugo Ouellet Côté. The design team consists of Élyane Martel (set design and props), Véronique Bertrand (costume design), Judith Dufour Savard (lighting design) and Mathieu Campagna (sound design).
Catch Me! (Attrape-moi) is supported, in part, by a grant from the Québec Government Office.
