Le Cirque des Frères Collini is a 100% Abitibi circus show that was presented from 2017 to 2019 at the Agora des arts. Circus artists François Bédard and Vanessa Collini co-founded and co-created the show with several artists from their region.
This production transports the audience into a universe reminiscent of the travelling circuses, carnivals and "freak shows" of the early 20th century. The different themes and disciplines presented make the audience go through a complete range of emotions. Le Cirque des Frères Collini is a reflection on the sometimes questionable practices of the time.
