Québec’s acclaimed contemporary circus company Cirque FLIP Fabrique will transform the stage at UConn’s Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts into a snowy winter wonderland on Thursday evening, March 12, with their exhilarating stage presentation of BLIZZARD – an astonishing display of athleticism, inventive choreography, and heart-stopping acrobatics. Featuring live musical accompaniment, the 70-minute program tells the story of a group of friends, each one different from the other, like snowflakes, exploring the awe and enchantment of a major snowstorm. Through the lens of their very special and intimate relationship with snowy weather, the Canadian-based troupe of circus artists brings their audiences on a crazy, fun, poetic, and tender journey through winter, inviting one-and-all to lose themselves in a moment of white wonder. Recommended for all ages (4+). Doors open at 7:00 pm. Show begins at 7:30 pm.
