Bouffon de Bellefeuille

French.

A family of bouffon live in the tunnels of the Montreal métro system. Every day they venture out to look for a new home and adventure, always in the hope of finding their way out of the underground and dream to be part of the world above.

Founded in 2016, the mandate of The MTL Clown Fest is to create space for all levels of performers to showcase original works that fall under the Clown, Bouffon or Physical Theatre spectrum. Included in the mandate we welcome people of all genders, but are making an effort to increase representation of women-identified, gender-non-conforming and trans performers. With this in mind, we will make an effort to strive for equal and proportionate representation in our space. We are dedicated to cultivating a multi-cultural program, welcoming French, English and Nonsensical Clown Language, as well as a vast multitude of other cultural Tricksters.

Tickets can be purchase online or by telephone Tuesday through Saturday from 2pm-6pm.
Please note that same day sales are by telephone only.

Coming Soon

Precinct is 45 minute improvised narrative. This means the performers know who their characters are but no idea where the story will end up (spoiler: it's always hilarious). Andy Assaf, Dimitri Kyres, and Jason Grimmer play the three main cops: soft-hearted Carl "Carly" Boucher, short-fused John Calgary, and gruff step-father of five Captain Bill Garber. Other guests will be announced soon! Together these tough cops are cleaning up the mean streets of Montreal's Plateau one perp at a time!
