Riga Circus presents: MACHINE DE CIRQUE (Canada)
A dazzling circus show full of wit and mastered skills!
Five men have survived the apocalypse. Their ultimate quest is to find other survivors. Their way to salvation is a most astounding machine. In this spare‐parts world, they creatively compete to retain a sliver of humanity. Armed with their talent for acrobatics and ingenuity, you’ll see how they get around in this world without women or computers.
Sometimes comical, sometimes nostalgic, these wacky characters masterfully manipulate various props such as a teeterboard, juggling clubs, a drum kit and even a bath towel! They do not hesitate to bare themselves, ready to scour their souls as well as their bodies to make you laugh, to move you and especially to dazzle you.
The company Machine de Cirque was founded in 2013 through the efforts of Vincent Dubé, president and general manager. It came to life at research and creativity sessions in 2012 and 2013 involving jugglers and acrobats Raphaël Dubé and Yohann Trépanier, as well as percussionist Fred Lebrasseur under the artistic direction of Vincent Dubé.
Machine de Cirque is an organization whose mission is to gather various players in the art world and technology field to produce circus shows.
