You are invited to celebrate, from July 2 to 12, 2015, the circus across disciplines and offerings that are appropriate for the entire family.
A traditional parade opens the festivities on July 2 at 6:30 p.m. on Émery Street, your chance to play amidst an atmosphere filled with colour and excitement. As for indoor shows, Beyond, a production by Circa, gets things started at the TOHU. Other troupes confirmed for the festivities include: Cirque Alfonse, from Canada; Machine de Cirque, from Canada; The Pianist and Circo Aereo from Finland; and Warm by CDN de Haute-Normandie from France. These are just of few of the circus world’s favourite acts than can be experienced first-hand at numerous venues, not to mention all the free street-level circus performances and workshops gracing the Quartier des spectacles, its surroundings, and other neighbourhoods of the city.
Indoors, outdoors, and across the metropolis, MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE is a hula hoop of a happening sure to ring you in with the joy of entertainment and the magic of the circus.
