THUNDER BAY – The City of Thunder Bay, in partnership with Club Culturel Francophone de Thunder Bay, are hosting Machine de Cirque’s Truck Stop at Live on the Waterfront on Saturday, July 28 at 5:30 pm and 9:30 pm.
Machine de Cirque is an organization whose mission is to bring together various actors from the arts and technology world around circus show production projects. The Québec City organization focuses on production excellence and the sustainable development of its team and encourages exchanges and collaboration with other regional cultural organizations to promote home-grown talent and to develop local and regional expertise.
In Truck Stop, a motley group of campers in search of adventure and thrills decides to hitch up their trailer to set out on a journey across the American continent. With a well-stocked cooler, windows wide open and music blaring, they are all set for an epic odyssey on wheels. Salty air that fills the lungs, enshrouding forests, electrifying cities, breathtaking mountains and plains that stretch as far as the eye can see hold the promise of an unforgettable trip.
Travel from east to west with five performers and a musician who will take you on a coast-to-coast trip in fifty minutes. To present this show, they will literally trek across Canada throughout the summer of 2018.
Residents are encouraged to attend after Buskers Fest and take in performances from Superior Theatre Festival in between Truck Stop.
Live on the Waterfront is presented by Ontario Power Generation and is funded in part by the Government of Ontario.
