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.

Deux mondes. Celui de l'extérieur, avec toutes les incertitudes et le brouhaha de la vie réelle. Celui de l'intérieur, un petit appartement tranquille où vivent trois jeunes adultes. Louis, qui lit beaucoup trop le journal, a des difficultés à contrôler ses angoisses. Charlotte, qui passe d'un gars à l'autre, ne s'aime tout simplement pas. Et Anna, qui sent qu'elle est remplie de pus, se déguise, car tout est plus simple quand elle est déguisée. Ah oui! Il y a aussi cette voix robotique qui nous parvient du téléphone pour nous annonce la fin du monde...

THE WOMAN POWER PRÉSENTE ‘35MM & HEARTBREAK’, UNE COLLECTE DE FOND POUR PUERTO RICO (US) SUITE AUX OURAGANS IRMA ET MARÍA + UNE EXPOSITION VISUELLE DE L’ARTISTE VICTORIA GRAVEL, INTRODUISANT UNE SÉLECTION PERSONNELLE ET FAITE PAR AMOUR DE SON TRAVAIL ACCOMPLI DURANT L’ANNÉE 2017. "THE WOMAN POWER PRESENTS ‘35MM & HEARTBREAKS’, A BENEFIT FOR PUERTO RICO (US) FOLLOWING BOTH HURRICANES IRMA AND MARÍA + A SOLO EXHIBITION BY ARTIST VICTORIA GRAVEL, SHOWCASING A VERY PERSONAL AND MADE WITH LOVE SELECTION OF HER FAVORITE WORK DONE DURING THE YEAR OF 2017.

Using specific movement and improvisational exercises the body will become the genesis for character and story development. Throughout this workshop the rules of clown emerge giving participants a fundamental understanding of clown, and a deeper awareness of their own performance and creation skills.
