Mission and History

L’Aubergine is a Québec City theatrical production ensemble that creatively interprets time-honoured traditions in a contemporary New World setting. L’Aubergine creates, produces and presents shows that highlight the art of clowning, circus techniques and live music. Since its foundation in 1974, L’Aubergine has developed into one of Québec’s most well-established, dynamic and unique children and family theatre groups, with over fifty productions and more than 4,000 shows to its credit.  A few years ago, its founder and artistic director Paul Vachon joined the famous Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas as Artistic Director for one year. He has also been involved for over ten years in the social circus program Cirque du Monde.
 
L’Aubergine’s productions blend precision and imagination. Typically, a cast of vivid characters use a succinct scenario as a backdrop for comic inspiration. On-stage action is supported by an original score, usually performed live by the actors and supporting musicians.  Language and gestures are playfully interwoven into bright, coloured images.  The cast works its own melodic alchemy, transforming musical instruments into props and props into musical instruments.  In fact, when L’Aubergine comes to town, their theatre of artistic zaniness and elegant buffoonery enchants everyone.
 
L’Aubergine offers two production series: shows for young people and family audiences, and large-scale shows for major events (coordinates artistic entertainment, including artist selection, supervision and production).
