N.Ormes + Liminal

Montreal + Alberta
Saturday, June 22 | 7:30pm
Venue: La Cité Francophone

N.Ormes is a contemporary acrobatic show where the artists push the limits and expectations of their own bodies and gender norms. Graduated from the École de cirque de Québec in 2018, the duo “Agathe and Adrien” works at the frontiers of circus, dance and theatre/performance. Provocative, dysfunctional and tender, the show brings the viewer to question their own assumptions. N.Ormes was a sold out hit at Montreal Complement Cirque in 2023! Notice: Adult Content

A combination of aerial circus arts and contemporary dance, Liminal uncovers a world where the extraordinary intertwines with the everyday, and the boundaries between dreams and reality become beautifully blurred. Created and performed by Edmonton’s Fragmented Journeys Collective, Liminal exists on the fringes of imagination, revealing hidden portals to places where the laws of physics yield to the whims of magic.

La Famille Golden Crust

les deux de pique
Saturday & Sunday, June 22-23 | 2pm

When the GoldenCrust Family arrive in their magical Winnibago, they bring with them excitement, hilarity, and a generous dose of exaggerated ridiculousness! Grace and Kevin GoldenCrust, contemporary nomads, invite you to experience their grandiose show staged in front of their mobile home. Overflowing with good intentions and ambitions, these snowbirds have created a comedic smorgasbord of unusual talents, personal triumphs, and the wonders of the sea, featuring sets and props originating from Florida’s most prestigious flea markets.
The GoldenCrusts are where circus, love, and humour meet!

Branché

Quebec
Friday, June 21 | 4pm
Venue: Campus Saint-Jean

Join us for the Canadian premiere of a contemporary acrobatic short film.

Through unique, female-driven circus and movement art, BRANCHÉ traverses time and the lush, natural landscapes of Quebec in a poetic exploration of our potential to work in harmony with nature in the face of the rising conflicts and chaos of climate crisis. As diminishing resources and livable land drive an existential collapse, the daring three-high formations and breathtaking falls remind us that a oneness of nature and humanity is undoubtedly worth preserving.

Official Selection at San Francisco Dance Film Festival, Dance Camera West (LA), Dance on Camera Film Festival (NYC), CineDans (Netherlands)… and Long-Form Award Winner at Portland Dance Film Festival
