Circus Show Récréation

FLIP Fabrique has been presenting a free show every summer since 2015. This year the circus troupe will perform a brand new show, Récréation, in parks across the city’s six boroughs.

It’s all happening between August 5 and September 4, with two performances a night, at 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The 46 performances will take place rain or shine. Here’s the schedule:

Show synopsis

The bell rings—it’s recess time! Students tear off a piece of their school gymnasium, fold it up, and head out across the city in search of adventure. Handball, badminton, volleyball, and basketball court lines criss-cross in all directions like streamers at a birthday party. It’s time to forge new paths and invent new games. No one tells us what to do at recess time. We do what we want and everyone’s invited.

The show is directed by Olivier Normand, who has staged a number of FLIP Fabrique shows: Attrape-moi, Crépuscule, Crépuscule – Raviver les braises, Blizzard, Féria, and Zéphyr.
