Girls with Altitude

The world-famous Flying Fruit Fly Circus returns to HOTA with their brand-new show!

The superheroes of tomorrow are female and are changing the world! Modern day role models like Greta Thunberg and Jacinda Ardern are inspiring a whole new generation of young people who want to make a difference.

Girls With Altitude combines the cartoons of celebrated Australian artist Judy Horacek (Where is the Green Sheep?), with the worldclass skills of the young artists of the Flying Fruit Fly Circus.

From the environment to equality, the young acrobats of the Fruit Flies propose new perspectives on the future using their famously exuberant mix of youthful energy and high-level circus skills.

About Flying Fruit Fly Circus

Ordinary Kids doing Extraordinary Things!

Australia’s Flying Fruit Fly Circus is one of the world’s premier youth 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 a 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.
