Event Details

The Cultch is thrilled to announce that Québec’s Cirque Alfonse will return to Vancouver with Barbu, a 15+ cabaret party, playing at the Historic Theatre from June 12 to 23, 2024.

Imagine a fairground where spectators are left spellbound by remarkable performances, outrageous feats, simple curiosities and unexpected eccentricities. Barbu delves into the origins of the circus in Montréal through music, video, circus, and general wackiness, which collides as each performer wows the audience with a showcase of their spectacular skills. Backed by a frenetic electro-trad band, the Cirque Alfonse clan—made up of the Carabinier-Lépine family and friends—sets the stage for a wild night out.

Cirque Alfonse is a world-renowned family circus company from Saint-Alphonse-Rodriguez, Québec. They were founded in 2005, hoping to embody the joy that they had growing up, a fondness for evenings filled with live music and dancing.

“Cirque Alfonse grew out of the need to look back fondly at the past. A desire to have more time for family, friends, and shared moments took hold,” says the company. Since their production of Timber in 2011, they have gained momentum, growing in popularity with each new show. They are now known worldwide for their unique style and sense of humour.
