Companies are taking over our streets, parks and neighborhoods this summer to the pleasure of everyone. En Piste underlines this vivacity and the strength with which the companies rise up and reinvent themselves. Our artists are shining this summer and we suggest a few activities to support them during their summer performances:

Throughout the month of August, keep an eye on the parks of Quebec City, you will surely come across Marina Plouffe as well as the acrobats of the Flip Fabrique troupe and their surprise micro-shows of La Tournée des 400 coups! 

Between street arts, circus and theater, enjoy the free shows presented by the city of Joliette, every Wednesday in August at 7pm! Find the program here

Marguerite à bicyclette will ride around the island's neighborhoods with her bicycle... Follow the troupe and wander around as you please all August. Find the program here.
