Cirque FLIP Fabrique grew out of the friendship and dream of circus performers in 2011. The company combines astonishing feats with true visual poetry. Cirque FLIP Fabrique is made up of world-class multidisciplinary performers with an uncanny ability to have fun and move the audience. They have worked with the prestigious Cirque du Soleil and Cirque Éloize, and taken part in many prestigious circus institutions and festivals.

Cirque FLIP Fabrique plays with gender roles in the eclectic Muse, a refreshing view of the contemporary circus. Set to an original score and live vocals, the acrobats’ gravity-defying performance combines breathtaking artistry and athleticism to explore the definitions of powerful women, graceful men, and everything in between.

The performance will feature trampolinists Thomas Chambers and Frédérique Hamel, trapeze artists Hugo Duquette, Anne-Marie Godin, and Evelyne Paquin-Lanthier, circus artists Léonie Pilote and Martin Regouffre; as well as the extravagant creative duo Maxime Robin & Sophie Thibeault, beatmaker Millimetrik, and singer Flávia Nascimento.

Tickets may be purchased by calling the Center for the Arts Box Office at (310) 506-4522 from noon to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, and two hours prior to curtain time. Tickets to all events are also available online at: arts.pepperdine.edu/tickets/
