As you wish:
​Dans mon histoire, mon clown part dans une aventure, naïve et heureuse dans ce que nous appellerons la société. Il reçoit un appel, un message lui disant qu’il doit accepté ce qu’il est un « clown » ou « une personne de couleur » et se fait ainsi enseigner par des institutions plus grandes que celui-ci comment « agir » comme une « personne de couleur » selon des clichés préétablis et des notions créer par la société. Mon clown essaie de répondre à cette demande à cette image à laquelle il essaie de ressembler, mais à la fin décide de rejeter ce modèle et rejette son nez rouge, son statut de « token black friend ».

La vie tragique des étoiles:
Difficile la vie de star… Philidor, chanteur étoile, et Rebecca, sa femme colorée, doivent ensemble sauver un spectacle au destin tragique. Tout semble conspirer contre eux. Est-ce que l’Amour vaincra la mort? La lumière triomphera-t-elle des ténèbres… On sait pas.

Hard is the life of a star ... Philidor, star singer, and Rebecca, his lively wife, must together save a show from a tragic destiny. Everything seems to conspire against them. Will Love overcome death? Will the light will triumph over darkness ... We do not know.

"La vie tragique des étoiles" par Philippe Thibaudeau and Becky Priebe

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

The clock is ticking: Morning Post editor Walter Burns pulls every trick in the book to stop his ex-wife and star reporter from leaving town forever to marry another man - and save an inmate headed for death row along the way.

This screwball comedy/drama started life as the stage play The Front Page before becoming a popular film starring Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant. Snowglobe Theatre's production is an original stage adaptation of both by director Peter Giser.

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.

Sruti Islam & Jeremie Romain dramatically/comedically read their favorite scenes from theatre & film.
