Walking tour.
The meeting place will be sent to ticket holders 1 week before the performance.

An experiment in clever pleasure
From the balconies, alleys or courtyards of Plateau Mont-Royal and Mile End, along three distinct routes, nine artists deliver various performances exploring the evocative and inexhaustible theme of fun! Spectators walk from one place to another for a fascinating multidisciplinary experience, lasting approximately an hour.

While there is a persisting preconceived idea linking circus to excitement and entertainment, these nine creators probe this notion of pleasure in an experimental and critical manner. Coming from circus, dance, cinema and scenography, and all chosen for the relevance of their approach and the aesthetic richness of their universe, they visit it through praise, derision, activism or deconstruction...

After the success of Se prendre in 2019, we happily welcome this daring company’s new creation.

An unpredictable itinerary for adventurous walkers!
