“A real treat for the spectators”

- Huffington Post

A rock show-like musical fresco, an invitation to gather together, a circus and musical celebration of heaven and hell made the Alfonse way… Well TABARNAK! We’ll have fun.

From this liberating swearword—yesterday’s rebellion and today’s almost trivial cry of pain, anger or astonishment—, the troupe rethinks the sacred and offers an unbridled great mass.

From the basement to the nave, and the altar to the choir, Cirque Alfonse’s dwellers of the past come into this symbolic place to revamp it!

With their signature communicative joy, the clan embarks on an anarchic and poetic Way of the Cross in the form of a live musical circus where the traditional is contaminated by the organ, and the church pews by acrobatics.

All aboard for this refreshing communion!

ABOUT CIRQUE ALFONSE

The company, which unites the Carabinier-Lépine family and friends, gets its name from Saint-Alphonse-Rodriguez, its municipality of origin in Lanaudière. The Québec fibre is central to each Cirque Alfonse creations as the troupe draws on national folklore for themes, to which a modern touch is added.

The Alfonse clan has captured the hearts of festival-goers in 2011 with its lumber camp in Timber!, and its cabaret electro-traditional cabaret in Barbu in 2014 and 2015. After having toured the globe several times and experienced worldwide success, the troupe returns to the Festival to give you have an unforgettable time.
