Fifteen years after the apocalypse, five survivors embark upon their ultimate quest to find other signs of civilization. In this spare-parts world and armed with their talent for acrobatics and ingenuity, they compete to retain a sliver of humanity. Sometimes comical, sometimes nostalgic, these wacky characters masterfully manipulate props such as a teeterboard, juggling clubs, a drum kit, and others to make you laugh, to move you, and especially to dazzle you. Machine de Cirque, a new Qu├ębec City company, presents this clever, exhilarating show that is both poetic and humorous.

Links to physics, force, physical education, discipline, circus acts, dystopia
