MTL Clown Fest - Tim and Joe present... Joe and Time

Tim and Joe

Company website

Bilingual.

Tim and Joe, two eccentric clowns discover each other for the first time yet they have been friends for ages. They contrast in height, look, manners and rhythm , at 6’5” and 4’11” the comedy goes right over their heads. An empty stage with a clothes rack, a microphone, a ukulele…the simplicity allows their imagination to play in what ever setting they want. A frame with out a painting becomes a gallery, the clothes rack becomes a shopping spree, the Ukulele becomes a ....Ukulele. Combining the influences of Samuel Becket and the good looks of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore they share an absurd ballad through various styles from visual comedy and slapstick to singing harmonious hymns as priests. Just when it seems to make sense they make a left turn or a U turn or park illegally.

Created by and starring Tim and Joe

Founded in 2016, the mandate of The MTL Clown Fest is to create space for all levels of performers to showcase original works that fall under the Clown, Bouffon or Physical Theatre spectrum. Included in the mandate we welcome people of all genders, but are making an effort to increase representation of women-identified, gender-non-conforming and trans performers. With this in mind, we will make an effort to strive for equal and proportionate representation in our space. We are dedicated to cultivating a multi-cultural program, welcoming French, English and Nonsensical Clown Language, as well as a vast multitude of other cultural Tricksters.

Tickets can be purchase online or by telephone Tuesday through Saturday from 2pm-6pm.
Please note that same day sales are by telephone only.

Deux mondes. Celui de l'extérieur, avec toutes les incertitudes et le brouhaha de la vie réelle. Celui de l'intérieur, un petit appartement tranquille où vivent trois jeunes adultes. Louis, qui lit beaucoup trop le journal, a des difficultés à contrôler ses angoisses. Charlotte, qui passe d'un gars à l'autre, ne s'aime tout simplement pas. Et Anna, qui sent qu'elle est remplie de pus, se déguise, car tout est plus simple quand elle est déguisée. Ah oui! Il y a aussi cette voix robotique qui nous parvient du téléphone pour nous annonce la fin du monde...

Douce Orageuse est une ode à l'amitié.
C'est une création qui cherche la connexion, la métamorphose.
Douce Orageuse est une exploration de moi et des autres.
Dans une confiance sans limite, que je me suis toujours permise avec vous, je m'ouvre sincèrement.
Guidée par un besoin de compréhension, j'explore les notions larges et compliquées qui habitent ma vie et qui habitent la vie de mes amiEs; la santé mentale et le militantisme.
