Machine de Cirque
October 10, 2018 @ 8:00 pm
15 years after the Apocalypse, five men still manage to survive. Their ultimate quest is to find other survivors. Their way to salvation is a most astounding machine.
In this spare-parts world, they creatively compete to retain a sliver of humanity.
Armed with their talent for acrobatics and ingenuity, you’ll see how they get around in this world.
Sometimes comical, sometimes nostalgic, these wacky characters masterfully manipulate various props such as a teeterboard, juggling clubs, a drum kit and even a bath towel!
They do not hesitate to bare themselves, ready to scour their souls as well as their bodies to make you laugh, to move you and especially to dazzle you.
Machine de Cirque, a Québec City Company, presents a general-audience show that is both poetic and humorous.
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 actperformed 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…
