L’Orchestre d’hommes-orchestres - 150 cabanes/homes

Parc de l’Amérique-Française
July 7 to 16
Between 6 pm and 8 pm

Get in the groove with the masters at converting everyday objects into musical instruments who make up this original, offbeat orchestra. In a nod to Canada's collective imagination, more than forty performers explore the themes of diversity, reconciliation and inclusion as they bring together periods, cultures and characters in fanciful, recreated places.

This show is presented under the Canada 150 celebrations.

We thank the Commission de la capitale nationale du Québec for use of the Parc de l’Amérique-Française.

Les Plasticiens Volants

On Grande-Allée to the Cœur du FEQ
July 7, 8 and 9
Around 11 pm

The first weekend of the FEQ, all eyes will be on the French street theatre troupe, the Plasticiens Volants, and their amazing giant puppets (floating, stable or inflatable costumes). Part puppet, part kite, they'll be floating above heads and mingling with the crowd.

Created specially for the Festival's 50th anniversary, an original dramatic and musical production.

An invitation from Bell with the participation of the City of Québec and the Government of Québec.

Transe Express

On Grande-Allée to the Cœur du FEQ
July 14, 15 and 16
Around 11 pm

Transe Express was created by a troupe of imaginative inventors and celestial architects who delight in bringing their monumental street performances to the public. Scores of actors, acrobats, carillonneurs, dancers, percussionists, singers, violinists and others participants will give you a stunning performance while dramatically suspended from a giant mobile. The soundtrack for “Lâcher de Violons’’ is a torrent of nostalgic flashbacks from the most memorable musical moments of the FEQ over the past 49 years.
