TRADITIONAL GAMES AND SPORTS REVISITED AND “ENCIRCLING”

The disciplines proposed by Le Moulin à vent Productions will be included in the official program of the event, during the different thematic days and opening and closing ceremonies.

Among the traditional disciplines, Le Moulin à vent Productions has chosen to offer two of its star attractions in Quebec: the COCKAIGNE POLE and the GIANT STEPS carousel (human-powered carousel).

As far as new disciplines are concerned, the company will present its main acrobatic attraction: the FLYING MACHINE. Demonstrations and participative activities will take place there: Russian Swing, Flying Barrel, Human Woodpecker…as well as other challenges from Canada’s playful heritage.

A CALL TO THE NEXT GENERATION OF CANADIAN SPORTS AND ARTISTS: FIRST NATIONS PEOPLE OF CANADA AND ALL TOGETHER!

For Le Moulin à vent Productions, traditional games, sports, and circus arts are eminently inclusive activities. They create encounters, encourage exchanges, and promote intergenerational and intercultural sharing.

This is why Le Moulin à vent Productions wishes to integrate into its team the talents of young people (18 years and older) from across Canada (including First Nations, Métis, and Inuit) who practice traditional games, sports, or related activities in their community.
