Borderville Circus Festival
Saturday 07 December 2019
To celebrate 40 spectacular years of the Flying Fruit Fly Circus, the Borderville Circus Festival hits Albury for a week of performances and workshops all focused around the Circus Big Top, located in Hovell Tree Park, Albury, the same location as the very first performance of the Flying Fruit Fly Circus in the summer of 1979.
The Flying Fruit Fly Circus, Australia’s National Youth Circus, will throw open its doors with the Borderville Circus Festival, which will immerse families in the magic of circus, celebrating the power of what young people can achieve, and Albury’s unique circus community.
The feature event will be a new work, Back in the Big Top, created by renowned circus director and Artistic Director of Flying Fruit Fly Circus, Anni Davey. Back in the Big Top will showcase the current 79 students of the Flying Fruit Fly Circus, aged eight - 19. It will be created in collaboration with artists from Circus Oz and Casus, as well as being the first time ever the entire ensemble has performed together.
