Théâtre à Tempo

Hydro-Québec Auditorium

What brings campers back to the same campground each summer, generation after generation? Why live outside for weeks or even months in such close quarters? The answer: friends; BBQs; dance nights; and games like badminton, horseshoes, cards and the pool. A campground is a place to let loose and be yourself because it’s finally summer. It’s place to hang out and enjoy, tease, tolerate, endure or hug your neighbors. A place where human relationships—real ones—are fodder for clowning around. It’s a microsociety where Théâtre à Tempo’s world fits right in.

At our campground, the base of our tents will be Cyr wheels. We will balance and tiptoe along the clothesline to hang our clothes up to dry. We will throw condiments from one trailer to the next when we cook out.Our beach volleyball will be more acrobatic than the Olympics. When the summer is done, we will pack up our folding chairs and picnic tables, throwing ourselves into the air once more before saying “goodbye friends, see you next year.”

Théâtre à Tempo’s goal is to create and produce interdisciplinary shows using rhythm, movement and clownish play.

Dec. 7 to 19 / Dec. 28 to 30 — 100 min. with intermission $20 — $45
