Les Moutons


Meet Julie, Marie-louise, Bernadette and César, three healthy ewes and a young ram who are making the city their home during Darwin Festival. And they’re asking you to watch them go about their routine farm activities – being shorn, fed, milked and more!

Les moutons invites you to a strange and hilarious universe created by Canadian artists CORPUS. Reality meets fantasy in this wordless live installation that recreates a bucolic country scene in a typical urban setting and takes you through a carefully studied, surrealistic overview of sheep behaviour. Programmed in more than 100 festivals in 20 countries, Les moutons has been a hit around the world. It’s a truly innovative performance that twists reality in surprising ways and takes audience interaction to new heights. You never know where these sheep will turn up around town – but you can be sure to catch them at Festival Park.

Special Performance at Breezes Muirhead

You can catch Julie, Marie-louise, Bernadette and César at Breezes Muirhead on Saturday 25 August. From 4pm, there will be activities for the family including a jumping castle and face painting. Come celebrate Darwin Festival in the beautiful Ted Rowe Park for an afternoon of family, fun and sheep!
