“Rarely is there an ensemble that can so stunningly give a nod to tradition before blowing it off for something more inventive.”
-Lucy Gellman, New Haven Independent
Poetic and humorous, the five guys of Machine de Cirque really know how to please. The only problem is they think they are all alone in the world. Their mission is to find others with the use of a strange machine. Will they do it? It is far from certain! They are easily distracted by their silly games and have a definite talent for putting themselves in perilous situations.
Courageous, touching and funny, these five crazy characters are full a contagious spirit they can’t wait to share with you. They masterfully handle the teeterboard, juggling clubs, drums, and even bath towels! Energizing! Daring! Machine de Cirque will dazzle you with its stunning feats.
Approximate duration: 90 minutes without intermission
Machine de Cirque developed out of research sessions between juggler/acrobats Raphaël Dubé and Yohann Trépanier, along with percussionist Fred Lebrasseur, under the artistic direction of Vincent Dubé.
The performance of the culmination of this project took place on February 15, 2013, and went beyond all expectations. A new company with its own artistic imprint and identity was born! In the summer of 2013, the acrobatic duo Maxim Laurin and Ugo Dario joined the team. The premiere of the Company’s first production was on May 21, 2015, at the Théâtre de la Bordée in Quebec City.
As an international circus performer and trained engineer, Vincent is a jack of all trades. He loves multi-disciplinary projects, and is interested in using day-to-day items as circus-act props, and vice versa. Always eager to learn, each project becomes an opportunity to learn.
