Tubas, ping pong balls and underpants?! This show has it all and then some! We’ve all had days were nothing seems to go as planned.  In A Fool’s Errand, world renowned clown, juggler, and comic acrobat, Jamie Adkins is having one of those days.  As he stumbles on stage, he’s determined to give it his all. Of course, nothing goes right and the resulting antics are hilarious. Cirque du Soleil veteran, Adkins entertains and delights using his unique blend of circus arts, acrobatic skill and physical comedy all accompanied by masterful musician, Julie Houle.  With the help of his tuba playing friend, against all odds, this sweet and clumsy character perseveres. Whether on the ground, on a ladder or on a slack wire, Jamie Adkins and this show end up winning the day!

Tubas, balles de ping pong, et caleçons ?! Ce spectacle utilise tous ces élèments et plus encore ! On a tous eu des journées où tout va de travers. Dans Espièglerie, Jamie Adkins, jongleur, acrobate et clown de renommée internationale explore tous les sentiers possibles qui s’offrent à lui. Lorsqu’il arrive sur scène, il est farouchement décidé à braver tous les obstacles. Mais rien ne va comme prévu et les scènes de quiproquo qui s’enchaînent sont hilarantes. Vétéran du Cirque du Soleil, Adkins dévoile avec aisance sa panoplie de talents en arts du cirque, acrobaties et comédie physique débridée en collaboration avec la talentueuse tubiste Julie Houle. Assisté pas son amie et contre vents et marées, notre bouffon persévère. Que ce soit sur terre ferme, sur une échelle ou sur un fil mou, Jamie Adkins et son spectacle nous révèle que l’art de la persévérance a autant de valeur que le succès lui-même !
