Jacques Rougeau show promotes non-violence9 novembre 2011
Former professional wrestler Jacques Rougeau describes his new family show as “a little bit Walt Disney and a little bit Cirque du Soleil.”
The event organizer and motivational speaker was on hand at Sherbrooke city hall on Wednesday morning for the announcement of a collaboration between Rougeau and the city on a performance of this show, which aims to promote non-violence to youth.
“Mr. Rougeau came to see me a few months ago to talk about a show that could seem contradictory, a wrestling show that is anti-violence […] which targets families and highlights acrobatics,” said mayor Bernard Sévigny.
The large spectacle will highlight the issue of violence among youth with the help of a number of performers, everyone from a man in a Spiderman costume to an actor over seven feet tall who was featured in the movie 300.
