Marvel at the Unique Concept
Thousands of spectators enjoy each year for this outdoor theatre circuit that has become a must-see event. If you haven’t experienced this wild adventure yet, don’t miss your chance this year! Come as a couple, with family, or with friends—whether you’re avid theatre-goers or not, you’ll get a kick out of the original performances and festive atmosphere. It’s a great opportunity to stroll for an entertaining and out-of-the-ordinary night out.
Où tu vas quand tu dors en marchant…? is an immersive theatre experience that challenges spectators to think about the message of each performance. The circuit runs continuously Thursday to Saturday from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Make a Night of it
We encourage you to get there early! You can stroll before going to see the performances. Stop for an aperitif on a patio on 3e Avenue in Limoilou or on St-Joseph street in Saint-Roch neighbourhood—you’ll be amazed by the variety and quality of restaurants on these two bustling streets. Afterwards, head to the performance of your choice to kick off your unforgettable theatre-filled evening!
Watch the performances in any order you like or over several evenings by taking in one or two per evening. The format is completely adaptable. You can watch a performance more than once and have a completely different experience depending on where you’re standing.
Immerse Yourself in Five Weird-and-Wonderful Worlds
Où tu vas quand tu dors en marchant…? is a series of five original pieces created by five teams of designers. Let Terre promise transport you to an excursion in a camping located beside a highway, presented as the last oasis of colour and freedom. Have an ecstatic and elevated experience while crossing the Lavigueur bridge with Points de suspensions. Marvel at L'Anse-à-Vaillant and its performative fresco in homage to the communities of fishermen, to the beauty of the coastline and to the power of the sea. Walk through L'embâcle des sans-soucis, a critical commentary of the collective lack of care of consumers about environmental issues. Finally, step into a poetic and out of sync vision of Québec City’s emblematic buildings with Jeux d'échelles.
