Flip! Fly! Fortissimo!

'Tempo' is the new show from the Flying Fruit Fly Circus, Australia's National Youth Circus. A highly distinguished musician has arrived to conduct their latest Symphony, but the orchestra is nowhere to be found! Fortunately, the Flying Fruit Fly Circus kids are ready to come to the rescue. Tempo features an ensemble of young performers aged 11 – 18 years who will flip, juggle, balance and dive their way into your heart.
