Grades: 7 - 12

You can almost smell the fresh-cut logs and the sweat of lumberjacks as the fearless circus performers hurl themselves across the stage, juggling axes, jumping through saw hoops and jiving to traditional Quebec folk music. These talented acrobats and musicians have created an unusual hyper-festive circus inspired by the natural raw materials of the forest and the exploits of the first North-American lumberjacks, loggers and farmers. Don’t expect red-nosed clowns and elephants, instead marvel at feats of strength and agility using wagon-wheels, spinning saws and wooden logs and lots and lots of Timber!
