A triple bill physical comedy show featuring one of the world’s top clown performers, Avner Eisenberg! Joined by virtuoso Jamie Adkins and à la Montréalaise, the absurd and eccentric performance duo Laurette et Arlette. 

Jamie Adkins (Gatineau)

Known for his work with the Pickle Family Circus, Cirque Éloize (Typo), and his solo creations (Circus Incognitus), Jamie is an everyman, with all of his vulnerability, humour and humble genius. He has performed more than 1,000 times in 23 countries. An expert at comedy born of desperation, Jamie’s performance is humble and unguarded. Adkins deftly escorts the audience along his poetic journey with side splitting wit. 

Laurette and Arlette (Montréal)

Laurette and Arlette, a duo of free-spirited, eccentric and adventurous women, bring their original music and creativity to circuses, cabarets and festivals as hosts and performers. The duo enjoy deconstructing clown structures, synchronized, choreography and other deliriums. They are also excellent jugglers. 

Laurette and Arlette each have many years of experience, and proudly boast their age, giving their presence a surprising authenticity. From tics to old-fashioned manners, this spirited conductor and colourful starlet take us on a journey to a world outside reality.
