Blurring the lines between circus show, contemporary dance and performance art, N.Ormes invites audiences to question preconceived ideas. In this physically impressive and touching creation, duo Agathe Bisserier and Adrien Malette-Chénier push the limits and expectations of their own bodies and gender norms.  

Recent graduates of the famed Circus School of Québec, Agathe and Adrien have developed a unique, highly physical circus and dance vocabulary. The duo has worked with renowned cirque companies on European tours and circus festivals worldwide.

N.Ormes will challenge you to question your own assumptions through a touching and intimate journey that will move you with a perfect blend of tears and laughter.

Recommended for ages 17 and older. Includes mature themes and brief nudity.


The duo AGATHE AND ADRIEN graduated from the Circus School of Quebec in 2018. They work at the edge of circus, dance, and theater/performing arts.

Their multi-disciplined skills have allowed them to develop a unique circus vocabulary. As emerging artists, Agathe and Adrien began their careers working for well-established circus companies in Quebec, but wanted to express their social and environmental values through a committed circus. So, they turned towards independent circus creations presented in Quebec, including Branché, Piece of MindInteract, and N.Ormes. 

 Tired of the obsolete and toxic patterns of male/female relationships present in the circus world today, the duo combines the codes of circus, contemporary dance and performance art to create a rich, complex acrobatic language, as a part of a feminist approach to redefining standards.
