Flipside Circus presents... SPOTLIGHT

Matthew Spasaro



As the days get shorter and the nights grow darker, it’s time to bring out the torch and head down the rabbit hole to SPOTLIGHT, the new show by Flipside Circus as part of the Anywhere Theatre Festival.

Removing itself from the traditional ‘under the big-top’ circus experience, SPOTLIGHT provides an up-close, interactive mix of entertainment, discovery and a dash of nostalgia.

Marketing Coordinator for Flipside Circus, Lauren Howard describes the show as being inspired by the age-old game of spotlight. “We have a lot of different things going on at once and the audience is free to roam around, have a look and create their own show.”

With the performance space hidden in a cast of shadows, SPOTLIGHT re-creates the circus experience that has formed such an indelible generational link throughout the years.

Forming close ties with productions like Circus Soleil and Cavalia, Flipside Circus has groomed many of our future stars through their renowned training programs, with alumni going on to places like NICA (National Institute of Circus Arts), the Beijing International Art School and circus troupes right throughout the world.

Be sure to charge the batteries and bring your torch along to this all-ages adventure and keep an eye on future shows offered as Flipside gear towards their 15th birthday celebrations.
