From Nova Scotia to British Columbia, Machine de Cirque embarks on a cross-Canada journey with its spectacular circus caravan. Aboard a trailer which unfolds into multiple acrobatic stages created especially for this grand road trip, five performers and a musician describe the scenery along their itinerary. Buoys Juggling for the Maritimes, Chinese poles for the lush forests, a trampo-wall against the Rockies walls… the show created in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Confederation is the promise of an incredible journey.

About the company Machine de Cirque

Engineer by training and experienced artist, Vincent Dubé dreamed of combining his two passions: apparatuses and circus. He went ahead in 2013 by creating Machine de Cirque.

The first self-titled show of the company, performed at the 2015 Festival, was a testimony to the successful combination of technology and circus techniques. After touring multiple Canadian and American municipalities, the troupe conquered a large portion of Europe, and keeps on doing so.

Surrounded by a renewed team and his most recent device, the stage director promises that this second creation will have us discover all the beauty Canada has to offer.

A stage made of a grass mat, a gas bottle and speakers: this duo doesn’t need any trickery for their natural charm to express itself. Between danced movements and Icarian games, a man and a woman—an acrobat and a dancer—inhabit their playground, combat zone at times, with energetic races, childlike silliness and creative urges.
