Poetic and humorous…the six guys of Machine de Cirque have everything it takes to please. The only catch: they are alone in the world. Their quest: to contact other survivors with the help of a strange machine. Will they succeed? Nothing could be less certain! They are easily distracted by their unusual fantasies and have a definite talent for getting themselves into perilous situations. It couldn’t be more normal! How else could they survive this universe devoid of women and computers?

Daring, touching and comical, these six wacky characters have a contagious complicity. They masterfully handle a teeterboard, juggling pins, drums and even a bath towel!


Founded in 2013 under the initiative of Vincent Dubé, Raphaël Dubé, Yohann Trépanier, Ugo Dario, Maxim Laurin and Frédéric Lebrasseur, Machine de Cirque produced its first show in May 2015, a show bearing the organization’s name. This unique creation was a great success with both the public and the critics. This first production, including its cabaret version, has been presented over 700 times in Europe, Asia and North America. More than 300,000 spectators have already seen it, and this number continues to grow.
