La rue COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE – Quartier des spectacles (MontrĂ©al)

Retour d’un dĂ©lirant monde cirque sur la rue Saint-Denis

“À la tombĂ©e du jour, rue Saint-Denis, dans le pĂŽle quartier latin du quartier des spectacles, le public entre dans un univers Ă©trange et fascinant, peuplĂ© de circassiens ! 17 h 30 Ă  23 h, tous les jours

En plus du dĂ©cor Ă©clatĂ© de la Place Pasteur, la rue Saint-Denis sera Ă  nouveau complĂštement cirque grĂące Ă  un univers immersif! DĂ©cors et mobilier urbain dĂ©tournĂ©, versatile, aux codes circassiens. Un milieu de vie oĂč rien n’est ordinaire, oĂč l’art du cirque devient art urbain : une table qui se transforme soudainement en piste de cirque ; une roue allemande devenue banc public ; un ciel de trapĂšzes et plus encore vous attendent entre les rues Sherbrooke et Sainte-Catherine.

Le festival a mis sur pied une programmation Ă©tonnante de performances spontanĂ©es et dĂ©ambulatoires alliant musique, danse et arts du cirque qui envahiront la rue Saint-Denis durant tout le festival. Restez Ă  l’affĂ»t, plusieurs surprises vous attendent!

QUATRE PISTES : UNE TRENTAINE DE PERFORMANCES QUOTIDIENNES !

GRANDE TABLÉE : De retour cette annĂ©e, cette spectaculaire table acrobatique, lieu de rassemblement des festivaliers au cƓur de la rue Saint-Denis, sera de nouveau le thĂ©Ăątre de prouesses audacieuses et de performances acrobatiques de groupe, utilisant notamment la hauteur du lieu.

ARCHE EMERY : Ici, on lĂšve les yeux au ciel pour apprĂ©cier la folie et l’audace, mais aussi la crĂ©ativitĂ© des acrobates de cet espace aĂ©rien. Straps, trapĂšze ballant ou trapĂšze danse, corde lisse, tissu, cerceau et chair balancing, on offrira une grande diversitĂ© de disciplines et d’approches crĂ©atives. Et, en plus d’avoir un haut niveau technique, les propositions rĂ©vĂšlent des recherches artistiques tout Ă  fait innovantes !

PISTE DE BAS DE CÔTE : Espace clownesque, avec zone de dĂ©tente pour toute la famille, cette piste propose des prestations qui explorent le mouvement, le corps dans toutes ses formes, mettant Ă  l’honneur les disciplines qu’apprĂ©cient tout particuliĂšrement les plus petits : acrodanse, jonglerie et clown !

PISTE SAINT-DENIS : Ă‰rigĂ©e en face du ThĂ©Ăątre Saint-Denis, cette piste dĂ©ploiera des performances davantage conceptuelles, Ă  la fois poĂ©tiques et sensibles, voyant dialoguer diffĂ©rents univers traditionnels et contemporains.”

Talking Stick Festival (June 12 – July 3)

“This year, we gather from all 4 directions to share stories articulated through music, dance, theatre, film and other forms of art presented by the Talking Stick Festival. We travel on our canoe to journey across our ancestral land bringing you, our audience, with us to explore our Indigenous culture through the arts.

The eagles circle over the travelers blessing them with courage, wisdom, inspiration and strength to persevere across any terrain. The ancestral silhouettes hover above the sky, water and earth watching over them and providing guidance in their journey. While the cedar bough at the “bow” of the canoe is meant to provide protection against negative energies they may encounter during their travels.

The backdrop of this year’s theme is set against the majestic mountains and ocean that meet in the land of the Coast Salish People – a diverse First Nations community. We communicate our theme “Come Together” in the 3 languages spoken in this land: ណxwĂșsem (Squamish), m̓i q̓əq̓aʔt ct (Musqueam) and QĂĄpqĂșthut (Tsleil-Waututh).

This year’s festival will be a unique experience. Our performances will be a mix of Full Circle produced events and partnerships with other notable local performing arts organizations. From June 12th to July 3rd, we will celebrate National Indigenous History Month by showcasing our talented Indigenous performers and artists.

We invite you to come aboard our canoe and experience our culture and history in Vancouver.”
