For four decades, our very own Flying Fruit Fly Circus has entertained the Border and beyond with their incredible performances.
To celebrate 40 years of being at the heart of Australia’s contemporary circus scene, their latest show, The Big Hoorah, is coming to The Cube Wodonga on Saturday, July 6.
Founded in 1979, the reputation and influence of the company has grown over the years.
Originally intended to be a short, six-week program for school-aged children run by Murray River Performing Group (MRPG) and a few intrepid circus artists, more than 80 students were trained from the region and a show was developed and performed in a circus big top erected in Hovell Tree Park.
Thanks to the ambitious level of circus skills training, the MRPG’s entrepreneurial chutzpah and the exuberant energy of the kids, the show, called The Flying Fruit Fly Circus, was an extraordinary success.
An unstoppable momentum had been generated and in 2019 – 40 years later – the Flying Fruit Fly Circus is Australia’s National Youth Circus, recognised as one of the world’s leading performing arts companies.
Join them for this special cabaret scheduled to coincide with their National Training Project, which attracts artists and enthusiasts from around the country.
It’s going to be a great big anniversary variety bill of vaudeville, circus and surprise guests and, like time and time again, the Flying Fruit Fly Circus never disappoints!
