Blending circus with theatre, dance, live traditional music and the folklore of their native Quebec, Cirque Alfonse take the audience on a wild ride of gravity-defying acrobatics and thrilling tricks with metal saws, axes and logs from the family farm.
Including phenomenal feats of agility and strength, Timber! stars the whole family from 66-year-old grandad Alain to two-year-old grandson Arthur.
Founded in 2005, members of Cirque Alfonse have worked with some of the world's most renowned companies including Cirque du Soleil, Cirkus Cirkor and Les 7 Doigts de la Main.
