The Eclectic Lab of Infinite Creativity


Step inside BAZZAR. A journey into an eclectic performance lab of infinite creativity where a joyful troupe of acrobats, dancers, and musicians contrive an awe-inspiring spectacle — one full of utter chaos and uplifting beauty.

BAZZAR whisks you inside the process like never before. “My biggest high is the creative process,” says Writer and Director Susan Gaudreau. “I love creating with people. There is nothing more fascinating for the audience than when artists share that with you— What they go through… Their inner, creative world.” Lead by their Maestro, the troupe bands together to invent a whimsical, one-of-a-kind universe. With his precious Hat as his ultimate tool to proclaim order, the Maestro directs the troupe as it builds on and on and on... Only to see their genius unravel at the hand of a trickster, whose curiosity is a catalyst for conundrum along the path to creation.

Just as winding and exhilarating as the creative process itself, a fun pursuit of order and disorder ensues between the Maestro and the prankster; both attracted by the Hat’s presence and the power it entails. In a place where the unexpected is expected, the colourful group imagines, builds, and rebuilds vibrant scenes in an artistic, acrobatic game. As the troupe unites in creation, inspiration radiates from the space. At key moments, the story onstage is directly influenced by the audience. Joining the troupe as one, an emotional journey is shared.

BAZZAR is also an homage to the beginnings of Cirque du Soleil, when an intimate troupe of street artists over 30 years ago brought amazement to crowds, anywhere. The high-energy excitement, collision of sounds and colours, and meeting place of diverse characters you’d find at a traditional ‘bazaar’, inspired the name of the show. BAZZAR perfectly captures the spirit! The spelling is slightly different, where the double ‘zz’ represents the time loop you sense during the adventure. As a word, BAZZAR is also read almost the same frontwords and backwords. Like the performance, just when you think you know where the story is going — there’s a twist!
