L'Autre Cirque

Artistes variés - Canada - Québec


From July 10 to 14


Duration75 min with intermission


Regular : $ 25,50

La Chapelle Scènes Contemporaines and MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE unite for the benefit of L’Autre Cirque, the one that celebrates the hybridization of genres, a mix that sometimes surprises, but always refreshes. On the edge of the circus and other forms of expression, these unusual evenings give voice to artists who choose alternative paths of creation and provoke our imagination to better entertain us.

On the program: Agathe & Adrien co-produced by Acting for Climate Montréal, Joaquin Barral, Hannah Grove, Merlin Matthewson, Maël Tran, Jeremi Levesque, Natasha Patterson, Sabine Van Rensburg, Brin Schoellkopf, Ruben Ingwersen, Niń Khelifa and Flavie Beaulieu.

This is your chance to discover a different kind of circus.

Program A: N.Ormes by Agathe and Adrien and curtain-raiser presentation of I Can't Believe it's Not Butter (Hannah Grove, Merlin Matthewson, Mael Tran and Joaquin Barral)
Monday, July 10 at 9pm
Tuesday, July 11 at 6pm

I Can’t Believe It's Not Butter! is a four-person ten-minute performance centered around a dinner table dressed with food. At each end of the table different pairs depict alternate relationships articulated through movement. N.Ormes is a circus show where the duo Agathe and Adrien push the limits and expectations of their own bodies and gender norms. Provocative, dysfunctional and tender, the piece brings the viewer to question their own assumptions.

Programmation B : Play Dead by People Watching and curtain-raiser presentation of TOUT EST PARFAIT (Nin et Flavie)
Thursday, July 13 at 9pm
Friday July 14 at 6pm

There will be a survival lesson, someone stronger than the other, a hopeless piñata, a constrained rubber band, the head shot of ambition, some repetition, some action, some bad taste and some blue.
2 interprets, 2 attempts.
Everything is perfect.
Set in a shifting universe of domestic trappings and interlocking stories, People Watching’s first creation ‘Play Dead’ observes the way we navigate social connections. Through its surrealistic blend of acrobatics, movement and physical theater, the piece moves with larger than life physicality while bathing in an intimate atmosphere.
