From January 31 to February 24, 2024, 14 performers, a bird and an array of multidisciplinary designers will take over Limoilou's magnificent Saint-Charles church with their gentle madness, for a very special celebration. After a decade of impressing crowds the world over, Machine de Cirque returns to its home town with this new creation.
The Grand-Mess' experience
Machine de Cirque invites Quebec City residents and tourists visiting the region in February 2024 to a major festive experience.
Grand-Mess' is a jubilant existential parade-show, tailor-made for Limoilou's Saint-Charles church. Before the public's eyes, an improbable and playful community makes the church its home. A chaotic, festive gathering, Grand-Mess' is a celebration in which we try to find - with pain and misery and humor - a common meaning to our absurd existence. For life is a never-ending procession that we have not chosen to follow. It has no meaning - or rather, it has only one: onwards and upwards!
Magnified by the sensitive and mischievous touch of Martin Genest (stage director), the church will become, night after night, the site of a miracle to be celebrated, each in his or her own way. Together, artists and spectators will look this reborn life in the face, in a joyful blend of self-mockery, the sacred and the profane, poetry and irreverence. Grand-Mess' is an immersive experience, a breathless acrobatic parade, a tender and mocking look at our human condition, a collective ritual to warm up the month of February.
