A must." In an explosion of happiness, this giggle-and-gasp-inducing gang packs all the joy of a summer's day into only 75 minutes. From bouncing off balance beams to scaling a trampoline wall, these cool kids of circus dare you to catch them this spring (before they bound out of town)!

    Flip FabriQue’s Other-Worldly ‘Catch Me!’

    Laurel Graeber

    April 13, 2015: The young members of Flip FabriQue claim to be French Canadian, but after watching them perform, you may suspect that they hail from a different planet. At the end of “Catch Me! (Attrape-Moi),” their circus show at the New Victory Theater, I half-expected Agents J and K from “Men in Black” to enter and blast the audience with ray guns to expunge our memories of an alien encounter. That’s because this troupe offers acts that don’t seem humanly possible, like walking up a building face. Really a giant, cutout chalkboard stylized to look like the front of an apartment house, this facade is the main element in Élyane Martel’s set. The performers write on it (their names and the occasional philosophical question), hurtle in and out of its windows and spin in the air around it. In a signature act, “Trampowall,” members of the group place a trampoline in front of it, bounce forcefully on their backs to a great height and then, with the help of momentum and what must be terrific shoes, walk the remaining few steps up its surface to cavort on a rooflike shelf.
