This aquatic celebration for all ages won’t leave anyone high and dry! Dive into the adventures of three aquanaut clowns! In a faraway, long-forgotten land, a group of water preservationists still rules. These amusing adventurers are on a mission to index the Earth’s waters — until a leak in the main tank jeopardizes their plans! In a panic, the trio spurts out torrents of solutions, each one more ineffective than the last, but the stream of their imagination has no limits! 

Acrobatic diving, fishing, swimming, sailboat journeys, games in a frog pond, showering, washing, wringing out, and rubber rings: In all waters there lies a tidal wave of pleasure that no dam can stop! From channels to funnels of laughter, Aquaphonie is a street theatre clown show set in the realm of fantasy.

When poetry and clown arts meet surrealism. With a cascade of choreographed scenes, optical illusions, and magical effects, Le ciel rue is wholly out of this world. Finding inspiration in the dreamlike, poetic world of surrealism, the show unfolds as a tug-of-war with reason from which the fantastic emerges. A poem without words, Le ciel rue knows no bounds but those of the imagination.

Dear Grandfather Octave must leave the house. And what’s more, this move is taking place during a pandemic! His grandson kindly gives Octave a hand getting things ready. But Octave’s reluctant grandfather quickly upsets the smooth running of the whole process! He creates wild situations, entangling himself and his grandson in a myriad of incredible adventures. Full of movement and surprises, the clowning trio offers a well-paced and hilarious show combining acrobatics, juggling, a mini wall-trampoline, and live music.

At first glance, Paul-Émile Dumoulin seems like just a regular librarian. He is serious, proud and very orderly. Every book is in its place on his impeccable shelves. The only problem? As soon as Paul-Émile gets his nose in a book, reality disappears, giving way to slightly crazy worlds coming out between the pages. Through his adventures, the very sensible librarian metamorphoses. He suddenly turns into strange and silly characters who perform acrobatics, hand-balancing, juggling, break dancing, and beatboxing. Just how far will reading take him?

Audiences won’t be able to resist the fun as Leonie and Carlito invent new games and share their contagious excitement.

The curtain falls. The theatre is plunged into darkness. Only a single light remains: the ghost light. The ghosts that inhabit the space are drawn toward it. As they recall the energy of a past life, they push each other around, push each other away, enjoy themselves, and tear each other apart, only to fall into an embrace once again.

The circus invades the museum! Seven zany acrobats and an electrifying musician take in a monochrome exhibit. With a creative spark, they set off an explosion of color. In mocking defiance of convention, these wacky and endearing characters eagerly explore the exhibition inside out. Dizzying feats, astonishing discoveries, poetic liberties, and a serious dose of some silly good fun come together to fuel this ode to creativity.

Sweat & Ink is an exploration of memory and relationships through acrobatic metaphor. Four humans wrestle with their own imperfections and limitations as they rub against the rough edges of memory’s fallibility.
Would perfect memory lead to perfect happiness, or can there be grace in our imperfection and beauty in our struggle as we tumble through life’s challenges?
Beautiful, messy, painful, and funny, it is a show to make you gasp, cry, laugh, and wonder.

In this re-invented agricultural world, the farm is turned upside down and the barn turned inside out!

Meet Kevin & Grace Bacon-GoldenCrust. These snowbirds are an odd couple with unusual talents.

Sometime in the last decade, on their way to Las Vegas to pursue a career, the GoldenCrust family and their trailer went off the road into Sarasota, Florida, America’s capital of traditional circus and show business, and they’ve been spending every winter there ever since.

An artistic clowning event for the youngest to the oldest, Above the C – C comme Camping has something for everyone.

The Deux de Pique simply need a place to park their vehicle with access to water and electricity to set up their performing area for a day or two. Whether the show takes place in park or a public square, once The Deux de Pique set up their camp, locals will never see the site with the same eyes!

The show explores the opposition and the relationship between two subjects: the child’s soul and the adult’s soul. We are inspired by the differences in typical behavior that can be observed between these two phases of human life.

Two artists on stage present different scenes, puzzling images, and human relationships. These absurd and dramatic relations tell sketches of stories revealing a pathetic daily life.

Hiatus

La marche du crabe

For ages 2 to 5, toddlers, families, preschools and daycares
40 minutes
Available as of May 2022
Contact Sandy Bessette
lamarcheducrabe@gmail.com 

Hiatus highlights suspended moments of nothingness and children’s games. Addressing concepts of territories and living space, the stage is encircled by a wooden fence on one side and a metallic one on the other. Locked inside, two friends pass the time by building and deconstructing blocks, webs, and paths. Through the window, unbeknownst to them, a friendly musician neighbor follows the children’s games with many instruments. Designed for children between 2 and 5, the show mixes dance, circus, and theatre in a non-verbal play about the relation to space and to others. Saxophone, clarinet and flute convey the playfulness of the children’s games.

Who makes the rules? You or me? You + Me! Without a word, we trace limits, we delimit. We build territories, we share them, we defend them. Remous Remis presents a brother and a sister trying to make their imagination work together, with rejection, negotiation, play, and jubilation. Like a ride down the Mississippi on a raft, the show jumps obstacles, treads coastlines, and faces storms like the crest of a wave.

Cherepaka means turtle in Russian. Composed of a shell and flesh, the Turtle carries within it the duality between the eternity of its shell that defies time and the ephemerality of its fiber that decomposes with time. Cherepaka depicts the death of a turtle and echoes the tension that inhabits human beings between their quest for infinity and the mortality of their animal flesh.
