It’s all about stunts and acrobatics in this toe-tapping musical by French Canadian circus company, Cirque Alfonse. Taking inspiration from the woods surrounding their own real-life family farm, Cirque Alfonse’s talented tumblers and musicians create a crazily-unique acrobatic experience set in the world of loggers and traditional Canadian farm life. The experience looks and smells authentic. The artists perform incredible feats of aerial acrobatics that are directly inspired by the natural raw materials of the forest and the equipment used on the farm. There are balancing acts on tree stumps and the sound of banjos and men with bushy beards performing synchronized axe juggling. Not only does Cirque Alfonse represent three generations from one family, it also features professional acrobats from the École Nationale de Cirque de Montreal, as well as professional dancers, an ex-skiing champion and three talented and versatile musicians.
