Looking for a show that you can bring your kids to but is sophisticated enough for adults only? Three skilled jugglers use their tools of the trade plus martial arts to tell a story that’s laugh-out-loud funny. And to start, a short dance piece where a dancer and a fiddler turn everyday situations into something laughably ridiculous. 

The New Conformity

Breaking apart preconceptions of juggling, Cause and Effect Circus uses it as the background of a touching story with silent characters and laugh-out-loud humour. Three co-workers struggle to make it through the day but disagreements over minor details spiral into chaos, bringing to light a universal struggle: the comfort of conformity vs. the freedom of individuality—told through tightly choreographed prop manipulation, martial arts, and physical theatre.

Alphonse & Lola

Eloi Homier opens the evening in the lobby. A dance piece in the style of early 20th century silent film, Alphonse & Lola features a dancer and a fiddler turning commonplace situations into the laughably ridiculous.
