Fruit Flies to mark 35 years

TRAINING is in full swing for The Flying Fruit Fly Circus’ latest production, Borderville.

International artists will share the stage with circus performers from across the country to tell the story of the successful national youth circus.

“We have got a good story to tell,” executive director Richard Hull said.

“It started with a one-off summer project in 1979 that turned into a successful circus now celebrating 35 years on the Border.”

It will also celebrate cultural ties with Chinese acrobats during the 1980s.

“We are inviting five of the best Chinese performers to spend two weeks on the Border that will culminate in two performances in October,” Mr Hull said.

Borderville will run from October 3 to 5 and will include the Chinese project, a shared celebration with HotHouse Theatre, exhibitions at Gateway Village and the Albury Library Museum and circus shows featuring current and former Fruit Flies.

More information will be available in August.
