Mixing circus, dance, theater and humour, Cirque Alfonse succeeds once again in its challenge of awakening the childlike imagination of the audience, without taking itself too seriously.

 Journal de Montreal

Animal: A Farm Story takes us on a journey of discovery through a series of slightly surreal farm fables served up with a touch of irreverence, impressive virtuosity and the irreverent circus company’s familiar comic touch. In this re-invented “farm fantasy,” the farm is turned upside down and the barn turned inside out. A production for young and old alike, Animal is the farm gone haywire!

Cirque Alfonse’s founding members have all worked with some of the most renowned “nouveau cirque” companies around the world. The company favors a multidisciplinary approach where circus, song, dance and theater come together, driven by original live music in an irresistible mix of trad and soul that the troupe calls “agricultural funk.”

Cirque Alfonse will perform Animal: A Farm Story as part of our School Matinee Series on Monday, April 24, 2023 at 11 a.m. Learn more by visiting our School Matinee Series page under the Education Tab.
