About Les Chasseurs de rêves

The Dream Hunters (Les Chasseurs de rêves) showcase extraordinary characters – gigantic puppets created from scratch – handled by stilt walkers! This group has travelled the world for more than twenty years, constantly innovating and inventing itself. A fusion of visual arts, circus arts and street theatre, the characters from the Dream Hunters come alive and express themselves through the lens of the great ideals that are beauty, freedom and harmony.   

With the power of theatrical play and the beauty of their characters, the Dream Hunters draw their inspiration from nature and breathe life into the scenography by demonstrating its mysterious power. The Dream Hunters have performed across all continents and have captivated thousands of spectators moved by a genuine, although demanding interpretation. From 1996 to 2001, they were the stars in Disney’s Epcot and Animal Kingdom parks, in China, Belgium, at the Festival Cultural de Mayo de Mexico, in Spain, Romania and recently Colombia. Le  Cirque du Soleil  has included them in many events in South Africa, Rome, Mexico, England and Las Vegas. 

Settled in Quebec, they quickly brought their personal contribution to many events, including Cirque du Soleil’s  2009 street show in Quebec, Les Chemins invisibles (the Invisible paths), Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival, the Quebec Summer Festival, the Pan American Games (Toronto, 2015), le FIAM de Jonquière (the World Puppet Theatre Festival in Jonquière), the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival, Montreal’s 375th and Quebec’s 400th anniversary.
