Useful information
about the performance

Founded in 2020, People Watching is a collective of six multidisciplinary artists based in Montreal. They fuse electrifying acrobatics with elements of physical theatre and subtle choreographic work. The young formation is very much supported by the well-known company Les 7 doigt, who were once again represented at last year’s festival. People Watching’s first creation “Play Dead” opens up a universe rich in imagery and presents the beautiful, twisted and ridiculous facets of human behaviour in surreal scenes full of poetry. “Play Dead” celebrates the absurdity of the everyday and the insatiable desire for connection and intimacy.

Expert tip

Francoise Boudreault, CLIQUEZ CIRQUE

"Put your hat on with a pin, the collective People Watching will sweep you into a vortex of high intensity. Play Dead is a brilliantly interpreted creation with a flow that is fuelled by the stage action, the danced acrobatics and the acrobatic dance, but also by a theatricality created by the stage design and the acting."

"If there is only one must-see show at the Montréal Complètement Cirque festival, this is it. This small troupe of Montreal artists, born out of the 7 Fingers, gave us one of the most original and inspiring contemporary circus performances of recent years on Wednesday night."
