Following in the fleet footsteps of fellow Canadians Cirque du Soleil is the contemporary circus troupe Flip FabriQue, bringing their latest show Catch Me (or Attrape-Moi, if you’d prefer it en français) to The Lowry for one date only. Telling the tale of friends reunited, the set is the cottage which the six used to share 10 years previously – and which becomes the backdrop to some jaw-dropping stunts. Props range from hula hoops and diabolos to the rather less expected deckchairs and oversized beach balls, and you can expect to enjoy highly skilled circus tricks, acrobatics, tumbling, aerial work – and a trampoline finale. Over from Quebec, and already tried and tested in London and Edinburgh, Flip FabriQue offer a dizzying spectacle that’s perfect fun for all the family; awe-inspiring for kids, with the nouveau cirque edge appealing to adults. Hotfoot it over to the Quays – this is one to, er, attrape!
Wed 3 Apr, The Lowry, Pier 8, The Quays, Salford, M50 3AZ, Tel: 0843 208 6000, 3pm & 7.30pm, £15, thelowry.com
