BARBU, electro trad fair, plunges into the origins of the circus in Montreal, from the end of the 19th to the 20th century. A fairground, a space for performance and exhibitionism, where the spectator is plunged into a universe of curiosity and eccentricity. No politically correct in this mess. In a series of tableaux where music, video, circus and other skids collide, each artist demonstrates his or her know-how to the public. It's the law of the most bearded! Supported by musicians with turbulent electro trad, Cirque Alfonse clan plays dangerously with the limits, hoping to surpass them. A bill in the colors of a great circus rave.
"A true bomb of happiness!"- La Presse

About Cirque Alfonse
Cirque Alfonse was built around the desire to collaborate with family members and friends, but above all with the desire to perpetuate a tradition of travelling family circus, in a contemporary version, which does not deny our Quebec roots.
It is from a core group composed of Antoine Carabinier and Geneviève Gauthier, circus artists, Julie Carabinier, contemporary dance performer and Alain Carabinier, old artist at heart, that Cirque Alfonse was built.
Born in 2005 in the Lanaudière region of Quebec by the Carabinier-Lépine family and their close friends, the company created its first show in 2006 with La Brunante.
With the collaboration of Alain Francoeur, director, and Nicolas Descoteaux, lighting designer, the circus acts come to life in dance and play, with the idea of reviving traditional music wakes with spoons, jigs and clappers, where the whole bastringue has a great time. The adventure begins!
