Flip FabriQue: ‘Catch Me!’
Sept. 28 to 30
A circus committed to joy, playfulness and friendship, Flip FabriQue was created in 2011 by Quebec City Circus School graduates. They have performed extensively with such esteemed companies as Cirque du Soleil and Cirque Eloize, and bring a high-energy mix of theater and acrobatics to the stage. All ages will gasp as the artists tumble, juggle and bounce their way through “Catch Me!” This gravity-defying spectacle features acrobatics, a trampo-wall and feats of agility and skill.

Iowa City Zombie March
Saturday, Sept. 23
Get ready to lurch back in time, ’80s style. The 12th annual Iowa City Zombie March features a graduation theme, so don some leg warmers under those gowns and try to perch a cap in that nest of big hair. Zombies will begin to gather at Happy Hollow Park around 3:30 p.m. to help each other perfect their gnarly makeup. At 5 p.m., they’ll make their way toward the Pentacrest and Ped Mall, winding up at The Mill for the after-party. The $5 cover for the living and proceeds from T-shirt sales will go to Table to Table and dystonia charities.
Iowa City Zombie March: ’80s Graduation -- 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday (9/23), Happy Hollow Park, 800 Brown St., Iowa City; Facebook.com/zombiemarch.org
