PERFORMANCES : 7:00 PM
WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE FOLLOWING
SATURDAY MARCH 7 : 3:00 PM
White. Totally white. At an immaculate exhibition, a burst of colour is quickly cleaned up. Everyone is delighted to return to the absurd state of monochromatic perfection. But, little by little, something comes undone and begins unravelling. Visitors slowly enter another world: Visitors slowly enter another world as their environment transforms around them. Colour flows once again, but this time, it’s permanent. Amused, troubled, energized...will they lose their way?
Director Olivier Lépine, seven circus artists of international calibre, and one multi-instrumentalist will take you to the limits of art. With breathtaking acrobatics and captivating live music, you will be touched by this amusing, unusual exhibition.
Mar 3 to 7, 2020 — 70 minutes without intermission $36 — $51

What People Are Saying...
“The result is a wildly entertaining hour of anarchy featuring complex acrobatic choreography, new twists on classic circus skills and heaps of infectious joie de vivre, reminding us that it is laughter and compassion that bring us colour; that in others and with others we discover what it is to be truly alive.”
“Machine de Cirque’s playful and innovative circus show is a masterpiece. […] colourful, dynamic and utterly unique.”
