Six reckless acrobats take advantage of a summer twilight by offering themselves a moment of pure aerobatics and frank laughter. Nature is their playground, they have fun defying the laws of gravity, they help each other to explore ever higher the infinity of possibilities. Their joy of living is contagious, their sensitivity is disarming, their acrobatics become more and more unusual...

Ephemeral, like an enveloping summer evening, like a fleeting moment of happiness caught at random, like a burst of laughter or captivating music, like the passage of this troupe of acrobats who arrived from nowhere and yet already left...

Two characters living in their forest, protected from the rest of the world, suddenly see their tree loses its leaves, one by one. A cool and icy wind seeps into the heart of their small glade. The universe that has always been joyful is now tinged with darkness. Their cohabitation, that always been pleasure and fun, will be transformed, like their universe, in hardness and dryness. Around them, the world becomes colder and darker. Is it their fault? Will they be able to forgive each other, their mistakes and their differences, to put their efforts together to survive this change of atmosphere?

Wrestling is hyper theater: everything is amplified and intense. Good and Evil clash there, embodied by caricatural characters exalted by the reactions of the public, who themselves find a powerful outlet there. In Arène (working title), Robert Lepage, Ex Machina and Flip Fabrique will offer you a revisited wrestling gala, playing with the conventions of theatre, circus and wrestling. The wrestling ring becomes a trampoline, while the side cables serve as wires for tightrope walkers or the announcer's microphone becomes an aerial acrobatic device.

LABO is a circus experiment that explores the research for individual and collective identity through ensemble movements of 7 artists dressed identically. The costume is a white overall with a hoodie that looks like a pyjama, or an astronaut or scientist uniform. It is de-humanizing and ironically gives us access to universal human states.
LABO reminds us of the dystopic universe of George Orwell, while proposing playfull and poetic living scenery composed of high level circus and physical theater.

Circus on a whole new theatrical level. We boil the epic love story of Romeo and Juliet down to the core of its conflict and drop the stage into a sporting arena. The audience witness two groups in opposition by default, by desire to rise above the other. Our star crossed lovers are fierce players but still do not seem to care who wins or loses if playing the game can bring them closer together. Competition can be playful at times, it can also be dangerously serious.

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?

Branché is a circus show for people of all ages, combining group acrobatics and dance, that can be played anywhere there are trees. Branché adapts and evolves with the different natural landscapes where it is played, from parks to forests to city streets; its content is influenced by its environment. The show evokes with simplicity and optimism the climate crisis by celebrating nature and the strength of community.

Two figures constantly remodel a space evocative of an artificial, manufactured landscape. Contemplative and chaotic by turns, the piece is built around an innovative acrobatic vocabulary, which grew out of the artist's deep immersion in combat sports. Intimacy and tension emerge through repetition, loops and mirror images. A DIY electronic soundscape guides us through this fragile world, which shifts between synchronicity and syncopation, harmony and dissonance.

A nomadic refuge, a place of calm in a chaotic world, and a hybrid show between circus, dance and visual arts.
Sanctuaire is centered around research on tensegrity and its poetic parallel. Sanctuaire harmonizes with the seasons, in the summer it takes place outside rooting itself in nature. During the winter it is held in museums and spaces dedicated to art. 
Sanctuaire is shaped around the desire to offer an inspiring space for everyone to breathe through hypnotic landscapes and performances.

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.

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.

Le Mobile provides an immersive experience introducing toddlers to performing arts and inviting parents to share in their universe. Lying under a giant mobile, they are enraptured by the nursery rhymes and let lullabies gently rock them while they gaze at acrobats animating suspended forms. The artists embody the mobile, singing, playing different instruments and dancing on the apparatus. They move over and around the public and their proximity facilitates their intimate meeting with the toddlers.

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.

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.

Performed over 1000 times in 22 countries, Circus Incognitus is full of humble, unguarded poetry and side-splitting wit.
