The National Circus School’s annual show, this year at Tohu from May 29 to June 9, 2019, is both a tradition for audiences and a rite of passage for the graduating class. It also marks the ultimate stage of the young artists’ advanced training before they go on to join the world's leading circus companies. Helmed by a multidisciplinary team of seasoned directors, the show will spotlight their passion and artistic and acrobatic mastery, the fruit of a three-year college education in circus arts. Addressing a wide audience, this annual event has become a must-see for aficionados of a circus that is spectacular, contemporary and bursting with emotion!
The show Où vont les fleurs ? will be directed by Alain Francoeur, assisted by Marie-Josée Gauthier.
A leader in circus arts education, research and innovation, the National Circus School (École nationale de cirque) trains world-renowned creators, performing artists and educators.
Où vont les fleurs ? (Where the flowers go?) presents a theatrical adventure inspired by the contemporary television series it revisits, references to which are at the tip of our remote control. Bracketed by a prologue and an epilogue, the show is divided into nine independent episodes. Each presents typical situations ranging from epic fight scenes, to romantic discord to improbable police drama plot twists. A circus allegory in which fiction becomes a mirror of a reality seen on the small screen. And possibly a reflection of what is happening near you.
