Machine de Cirque uit Canada doet overal ter wereld de monden openvallen van verbazing.

De vijf acrobaten annex clowns annex muzikanten worden in deze poëtische en humorrijke show geconfronteerd met een wereld zonder televisie, auto’s of computers. Dat betekent veel acrobatiek, manipuleren en jongleren met wat de mannen zoal her en der opdiepen. En na al die arbeid willen de heren natuurlijk even baden. In Machine de Cirque wordt het hele leven opnieuw uitgevonden. En en passant ook het circus.

“[…] you’ll likely find yourself wearing a goofy smile as a quartet of high-spirited circus artists and one energetic percussionist team up to deliver an inspired performance of acrobatics and broad comedy.”

The Boston Globe

“Machine de Cirque’s four artists and musician prove it is possible to seamlessly combine comedy and poetry.“

Kronen Zeitung

“This is intoxicatingly euphoric… There’s everything here: The great acrobatic feats, the comedy, the sincerity, and terrific music!” 

WGBH News

“Rarely is there an ensemble that can so stunningly give a nod to tradition before blowing it off for something more inventive.”

New Haven Independant

Reinventing life

The Canadian Machine de Cirque has jaws dropping in surprise everywhere around the world. In this poetic and funny show, the five acrobats and clowns and musicians are confronted with a world without television, cars, or computers. This results in a lot of acrobatics, manipulating, and juggling with all kinds of stuff the men dig up here and there. And of course the men want to bathe after all this work. In Machine de Cirque life is reinvented. As is the circus.
