About the Production
Due to severe budget cutbacks the 217th Canadian Flying Squadron has been left without any planes. Determined to fly at any cost, the 5 flyers continue their regimented training in an imaginary terrestrial airfield. Choreographed down to the millimeter, the Flyers have paraded their hilarious maneuvers to audiences around the world. Conceived and choreographed by Sylvie Bouchard and David Danzon, A Flock of Flyers was the Gold Medal Winner at the IV Games of la Francophonie 2001 in Hull, Quebec (Street Theatre category) and was hailed as a “Canadian contemporary classic” by the Globe and Mail.
