from 1st to 5th of June

On the roofs of the great square.

On the roofs of the big square, still asleep, the one who cleans the chimneys is already working: the main arteries that lead to the hearts of the homes.

And in these homes, from morning to night, people live and work.

They study there, they take refuge there.

They play there, they cry there.

We fly there, we fly away.

And we come back to it, always.

Every day, every evening, every night, until morning.


The 2022 graduation show of the École de cirque de Québec, from June 1st to 5th at 7:30 pm.

Geneviève Kérouac

A graduate of the École de Cirque de Québec in 2000, Geneviève Kérouac began her career at Cirque Éos. Clown, straps and aerial diamond are her main disciplines. Between 2002 and 2010, she continued her training in clowning with Francine Côté, René Bazinet, Soizick Hébert and Michel Dallaire. She deepened her mastery of clowning by creating the Dry Beat Show (2004), the Grande Étude (2008), Swing Station (2009) and Oubliette (2012), the Concerto de bruits qui courent (2015) and Camping (2019). In 2008, she co-founded Théâtre à Tempo, a company that creates and produces multidisciplinary shows, of which she is the co-artistic director. She is also artistic advisor and responsible for training in clowning arts at the École de Cirque de Québec.

At the same time, she has dedicated herself professionally to swing dancing since 2003. World Champion in 2005 and 2007, she is a teacher of lindy hop, charleston, blues and balboa at the local and international levels (Europe, Australia, Americas).

She is now an artistic advisor, director and choreographer for numerous productions in circus, music and theater.
