On April 12 at 8pm, join the Canadian Cultural Centre for a special evening with the Canadian company Barcode Circus, on the eve of the first performance of their show De sueur & d’encre” at the Monfort Théâtre from April 13 to 24: between screenings and discussions, discover the circus of tomorrow, both eco-responsible and sustainable

An innovative Montreal collective from the new generation of Canadian circus, Barcode Circus works to promote and develop contemporary circus around the world.

With their shows, the members of the company use their art to convey a strong ecological message that raises public awareness of environmental impact. Pushing their approach even further, they recently set out to find an alternative to airplanes, to reduce their carbon emissions during their tours. This is how they began their collaboration with the association Elemen’Terre, to carry out a tour of low-carbon shows on board the Pen-Duick VI sailboat.

Come to the Canadian Cultural Centre for the screening of the documentary New Horizons directed by Antoine Ménard, which follows the company’s artists aboard the sailboat Pen-Duick VI during their tour of the Ponant Islands! The screening will be followed by a conversation with the artists, the sailor Marie Tabarly and the director Antoine Ménard.

  • 8pm: screening of the documentary New Horizons (20 min) and Tour des îles du Ponant : l’Archipel des Glénan et le Zéro Vulnérabilité (4 min) by Antoine Ménard 
  • 8:30 pm: conversation with the artists of the Barcode Circus, the sailor Marie Tabarly and the director Antoine Ménard
