Review: Catch Me (Attrape Moi), Underbelly Festival ✭✭✭✭✭

Catch Me (Attrape Moi)
Flip FabriQue

Underbelly Festival, London

Tuesday 23rd May - Fast energy, humour, high flying and fearless - the exciting new faces of Canadian circus are now headlining at the Underbelly Festival. 

The story of the show is all about a group of friends who once all spent a summer together in a cottage, jump to 10 years later and they all return to that same cottage to spend a weekend together. Reminiscing on the old times, new times and returning to the same kids they once were, the show takes you on a journey of happier times as a kid, bringing out your inner child. 

The troupe is made of 6 friends from Canada, who all in their own right have had extremely successful careers, they come together to form Flip FabriQue. They are Christophe Hamel, Bruno Gagnon, Hugo Ouellet Côté, Jérémie Arsenault, Camila Comin and Yann Leblanc. All extremely talented throughout the show they showcases their unique skills. 

This show has a unique way of switching from scene to scene, switching from dramatic/sad to incredibly funny and witty. Not many shows can pull of such a dramatic change in mood, Flip FabriQue pull it off so effortlessly. The softer moments do provide you with a moment to reflect and quite simply be mesmerised by the human body and what can be achieved, beautiful moments within these scenes. 

A lot is packed in to 75 minutes, you'll get to see hula hoops, aerial straps, diabolos, juggling and a bit further in some crazy feats with huge red balls all to the tune of Copacabana. Favourite part of the show, what they call 'Trampowall', a huge trampoline is placed on the stage and used to pull off some unbelievable jumps while using the cottage roof which is quite a drop. 

A little tip - don't sit near the front you will get the most out of the show if you sit nearer the back. 

With tricks, treats and lots of spinning this show is perfect for all ages - hugely enjoyable and entertaining.
