SLAM! Ex Machina and Flip Fabrique burst into the world of wrestling through their respective disciplines ; a decisive match between titans of theater and circus staged by Robert Lepage.

SLAM! A resounding title, a shocking spectacle. Simultaneously an onomatopoeia and a violent wrestling move where the opponent is thrown to the ground, slam takes on various forms, allowing for artistic exploration. The language and codes of wrestling will be deconstructed and then reconstructed to revisit the genre.

In this hyper-theatrical show, the acrobats embody a whole gallery of characters inside and outside the ring, while exploiting their circus skills.

SLAM! A wrestling gala on steroids.

About Ex Machina

The company brings together creators from a wide range of fields and offers a varied artistic production: original plays written and performed solo or collectively, plays based on existing texts, productions where various disciplines (dance, music, museology) blend with theater, operas and multimedia productions where the technological dimension is predominant. Ex Machina mainly develops its shows in Quebec City, then distributes them extensively in Quebec, Canada and elsewhere in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Oceania. Beyond their diversity, the company's projects have a few traits in common. Anecdotes lead to the exploration of ideas such as the revelation of identity through exposure to the other. Cultural crossroads, the nature of the creative act, broken communication and states of dependency are recurring themes.
