Or a chance to start over, to fix our mistakes? A new blank page in the shape of a blizzard. With Blizzard, Cirque Flip Fabrique takes you on a crazy, poetic and gentle journey in the dead of winter, and invites you to lose yourself in a moment of complete wonder. With performers at the peak of their art and outstanding visual poetry, Blizzard promises to blow away everything in its path.
