Flying Fruit Fly Circus have announced a new feminist show 'Girls with Altitude' at Melbourne's Playhouse Theatre.
Featuring an all-female acrobatic cast from 10 to 18-years-old, the Flying Fruit Fly Circus is an extraordinary example of the athletic feats of young women, and it’s coming to Melbourne’s Playhouse Theatre with a brand new show on September 16 and 17 this year.
The acrobatic performances will be accompanied by visuals of political cartoons by renowned cartoonist and feminist Judy Horacek. Flips, tumbles and acrobatic elegance from dizzying heights will challenge any perceptions of circus as a male-dominated artform, with a performance that also adds humour to the usual mix of skill, strength, courage.
