The Foutoukours 

Specialized in acrobatic clown for the past 25 years !


Since 1997, the Foutoukours have been dedicated to update the clowning art to highlight its emotional plurality and use its creative freedom to address contemporary themes with physical play as a universal language.

In its 25 years of existence, the company has developed a strong artistic direction by setting each production within a defined aesthetic, leaving room for imagination and human interaction around the themes of solidarity and brotherhood, all conveyed through circus disciplines and clowning. By taking inspiration from different trends and styles in each of their productions, The Foutoukours are working to restore the clowning art form to its rightful place in Quebec and all around the world.

This artistic direction brings an educational mandate to a variety of audiences in order to help them evolve their vision of clowning through three sectors within the company: stage production, cultural mediation and professional training.

Art Education

We have designed a complete cultural mediation program on acrobatic clowning and the art of clowning, one of the essential skills for primary school classes. We offer teachers who wish to approach this art form with their students through our pedagogical notebooks and workshops.

We also offer this program to programmers who may be interested in offering this as a family activity with our family mediation kit.
