Repertory

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’s Truck Stop is a mobile show that literally arrives on its own wheels (as a trailer) to its outdoor performance sites. The outdoor show, performed by 5 spectacular acrobats accompanied by a live musician, begins in, out, and around the truck before the truck’s walls open up to reveal a stage. The charming family of performers is on an epic road trip! Salty air fills the lungs, tall forests beg climbing, electrifying cities excite, breathtaking mountains inspire flying, and plains that stretch as far as the eye can see hold the promise of an unforgettable trip across several seasons. Created for the whole family for outdoor performances, daytime shows run 40 minutes in length, nighttime shows run 50 minutes in length.

Truck Stop Marketing Document

It’s time for a fancy night out at the art gallery! Chin up, formalwear, champagne flutes in hand, and classical music playing softly in the background surround you. Before your very eyes, the suits and dresses change colors, and paint brushes replace the champagne flutes. Chins are lowered and your eyes sparkle. You have now become part of the artwork!

“La Galerie” is a contemporary circus show that immerses the audience in a fleeting canvas – it is where the boundaries between what is art and what is not become blurred.

 Under the leadership of stage director Olivier Lépine and produced by the celebrated Quebec-based Machine de Cirque, La Galerie features seven world-class circus artists and one multi-instrumentalist. In a 80-minute performance, they pull out all the stops to thrill audiences with Russian bar, teeterboard, hand-to-hand, juggling, and high-flying acrobatic acts.

Bios

 

Boasting performers from Cirque du Soleil, Cirque Eloize, and Les Sept Doigts, Machine de Cirque was created by juggler/acrobats Raphaël Dubé and Yohann Trépanier, along with percussionist Fred Lebrasseur, under the artistic direction of Vincent Dubé. Guinness World Record holders for the most consecutive back flips on a teeter board as a team of two, Maxim Laurin and Ugo Dario joined the team and Machine de Cirque was premiered in May, 2015 in Quebec City.

Based in Quebec City, Machine de Cirque’s show premiered in the US at the International Festival of Arts & Ideas in 2016. It was presented for two sold-out weeks by Arts Emerson in September, 2016 in Boston. This season, the company will be presented throughout the US and CANADA. Great for all ages as well for date nights, Machine de Cirque runs 90 minutes in length, no intermission. 60-minute student shows are available, as are two-show days.

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.
