When the orchestra hasn't shown up and the audience is waiting, call the Flying Fruit Fly Circus!

A highly distinguished musician has arrived to conduct their latest symphony, but the orchestra is nowhere to be found. Fortunately, the Fruities are ready to save the day! And create chaos with the concert grand piano…

Directed by Jake Silvestro with an original score by Ania Reynolds, Tempo features an extraordinary ensemble of young performers aged between 12 and 18 who not only possess dazzling circus skills but also play instruments!

Shifting between striking aerial acts and highly choreographed acrobatic chaos, Tempo draws heavily on the traditional knockabout humour of the Flying Fruit Fly Circus – a trademark of the company over many years. Magic, slapstick, juggling, balancing, acrobatics and aerials tumble in, out and around the concert grand piano.

With no dialogue and plenty of gasp-inducing action, Tempo appeals to every age and is suitable, or perhaps essential, for all families.

Ordinary Kids doing Extraordinary Things!

The Flying Fruit Fly Circus is Australia’s National Youth Circus, recognised as one of the world’s leading  performing arts companies. In 1979 it began as a local circus project for school kids. Since then ‘the Fruities’ have tumbled their way into the hearts of millions of people throughout Australia and the world. They combine 
energy, expertise, and commitment to demonstrate in a most spectacular and joyful way, the limitless potential of young people. 

Based in Albury-Wodonga, the Fruities not only perform, but also attend school at the Flying Fruit Fly Circus School, and train up to 20 hours a week at our state-of-the-art training facility. The full-time select-entry training program caters for children aged 8 – 18 years old, and includes dedicated circus skills development and creative classes, as well as bespoke fitness and conditioning programs. Training together, the Fruities have a developed sense of group pride, self-confidence, and achievement. 

Today the Flying Fruit Fly Circus is an institution of national and international significance, touring acclaimed circus productions all over Australia and the world.

The Venue: Ulumbarra Theatre

 

Meaning ‘gather together’ or ‘meeting place’ in the language of the local Dja Dja Wurrung people, Bendigo’s Ulumbarra Theatre rises majestically from what was once the Sandhurst Gaol.
