The acrobats, musicians and clowns from the Canadian company Machine de Cirque take us with them on a surreal journey through time. The setting is a post-apocalyptic world. The five men who survive set off in a fantastic machine in search of other living creatures. There is a mood of doom – but remarkably, aided by some musical fireworks, out of this extreme sadness come some scenes of brilliant comedy. In the process their adventure vehicle turns into gymnastic equipment, a high wire, a springboard or a bicycle course – in each case setting the stage for a daredevil spectacle full of charm and nostalgia.
