“Machine de Cirque” opens TOHU’s 15th season October 10-14

MONTRÉAL, September 20, 2018. Daring, moving, and funny, the gang of MACHINE DE CIRQUE is back in Montréal. The company will kick off TOHU’s 15th season—a 100% made in Quebec circus programming on this anniversary year—with its acclaimed namesake show, hitting the stage October 10 to 14.

For only six performances, Montréal will have the opportunity to see again or discover the first show by MACHINE DE CIRQUE, a memorable encounter with five survivors, each one as ingenious as the last, who try to get a signal using a strange machine… Will they succeed? Perilous situations follow one another in an electrifying atmosphere, paced by an energetic drummer. A breathtaking show, written and directed by Vincent Dubé, for physical theatre enthusiasts as well as thrill-seeking audience members!

Discovered thanks to a performance at MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE in 2015, the five MACHINE DE CIRQUE performers—acrobats Yohann Trépanier, Raphaël Dubé, Maxim Laurin, Ugo Dario and musician Frédéric Lebrasseur—have since become remarkably successful in some 15 countries; the company’s international exposure has been rewarded at the Prix d’excellence des arts et de la culture in 2017. Furthermore, the group broke the Guinness record for the most consecutive back flips on a Korean plank in 2016—a video of the feat was broadcast in Times Square, New York!—, and previously won the Charlie-Chaplin Trophy at Vaudreuil-Dorion’s 2015 Festival de cirque. Two of its members, Maxim and Ugo, were awarded at the Festival mondial du cirque de demain in France and at Young Stage in Switzerland. And let’s not forget Yohann and Raphaël’s original towel act performed on TV show La France a un incroyable talent, viewed by more than 40 million fans! Scheduled to perform in Italy, Spain, Switzerland and France by the end of 2018, MACHINE DE CIRQUE continues to travel the world, sweeping audiences and critics, here and abroad…
