IT'S A CIRCUS: The innovative French-Canadian troupe, Machine De Cirque, comes to Stanford.

Those who picture Ringling Bros. camp, creepy clowns and animal cruelty when thinking about the circus obviously haven’t spent much time in French Canada. In addition to the world-renowned Cirque du Soleil, Quebec is also home to Machine de Cirque. Founded in 2013, this compact troupe aims to engage the imaginations of patrons by exploring a post-apocalyptic storyline through juggling, acrobatics, music and dance. In a world without computers or women, five men must survive with little more than one another’s company. Fortunately, they have plenty do—like flip on trampolines and execute exciting fixie tricks.
