Machine de Cirque
By: Mark Chetcuti
This wildly poetic movement based performance is both physical on stage and captivating of the audience’s attention. Juggling is only the beginning when it comes to the Machine de Cirque. Their show consists of many feats of balancing on a variety of objects including uni-cycles. They also masterfully handle the teeterboard, juggling clubs, drums, and even bath towels! The physical feats of daringness are accompanied with music, which includes drumming. Their ability to showcase raw talent which not only comes from understanding the physics involved with their physical performances but also through a wide variety of types of performance make the Machine De Cirque profoundly captivating.
The show is approximately 90 minutes without an intermission. The Company 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 Frédéric Lebrasseur under the artistic direction of Vincent Dubé.
