Sweat and Ink

Montreal’s Barcode Circus Company
June 24, 2022 | 7:30 pm

Sweat and Ink is an athletic and compelling exploration of memory through acrobatic metaphor. A journey in 4 intertwined stories where each artist competes in technical prowess through a circus discipline (aerial hoop, cigar box, Russian bar, hand to hand acrobatics) to deliver a piece of imaginary life. Remarkable, raw, messy, funny and poignant, it is a show that will make you laugh, cry, jump, marvel, and above all, will take your breath away. Based in Montreal, the Barcode Circus Company is an innovative collective that pushes the limits of contemporary circus. Their talent has been recognized by numerous awards. Sweat and Ink was performed to much acclaim at Montreal’s TOHU in December, 2021. This will be Barcode Circus Company’s premiere performance in Alberta.


The Festival headquarters and main performance venue is Timms Centre for the Arts unless otherwise noted.
