CIRQUE ELOIZE MAKES IT RAIN IN MONTREAL

It’s no secret that Montreal loves a good circus. This city is so rich with circus artists and phenomenal contemporary circus performers that it feels like they’re everywhere. But the best of the best can be found in Cirque Éloize’s fifth production Rain, opening on December 6 at Monument National…

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL: DECEMBER

With summer’s frenzy of activity behind us, Montrealers are ready for the slow, sweet pace of December – of course, slow is a relative term here, as holiday parties, gift shopping, music, dancing, theatre, art shows and all sorts of merry-making abound throughout the month. It’s a busy time, but with sparkling lights in the streets and plenty of warm places to cozy up, Montreal’s atmosphere is nonetheless relaxed and welcoming…

ODYSSEO: A SPECTACULAR HORSE SHOW UNDER THE BIG TOP

You don’t have to be a horse lover to love Cavalia, but it helps. Never has there been a show that so unironically captures the special feelings that horses can inspire in those of us who are drawn to them. The first Cavalia was unlike any “horse show” ever created- it’s not a circus, though it’s presented under the world’s biggest big top, and it’s not a pageant, though the sets and costumes are marvelous, and it’s not a play, because there’s no storyline to speak of. And their second show, Odysseo, is more spectacular, more ineffable, just more, than the first…

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL (SEPTEMBER 30 TO OCTOBER 6)

Summer is over but Montreal’s busy fall season is about to leave all that fun and sun in its wake. As the days grow shorter this week, the nights light up here: in bars and restaurants – and for outside dining too, in theatres and music venues, in art galleries and cinemas. The weekend starts with an arts and culture bang with Les Journées de la Culture, three days of free entertainment around town and around the whole province…

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL (JULY 7-10)

Oh, it’s hot in the city. And I love it. Of course, I also love air-conditioning. But during July in Montreal, it’s easy enough to strike a balance between too hot to handle and too cold to hold. With Jazz Fest still ringing in our collective ears and the mercury rising, it’s time to wear the bare minimum and seek maximum entertainment: this weekend, find it at one of many circuses, at a full-blown Caribbean carnival, in film fests and in the parks, and, as if any of us could forget, in the form of a guy named Bono…

ROBERT LEPAGE AND CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: TOTEM

Just as Cirque du Soleil’s latest touring show Totem represents the evolution of Mankind, so does the show itself trace the evolution of Cirque du Soleil itself- arguably Montreal’s most famous, beloved and successful artistic export. Totem follows the human desire to progress from the sludge of our murky beginnings to the pinnacles of human aspiration…

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: TOTEM BY THE CEAGLE BROTHERS

So, I’m Jean Francois and this is my brother Jean Christophe. Or maybe it’s the other way around- everyone gets us mixed up so why can’t I? But we are definitely half bird and half cat which makes us basically the most agile creatures ever. We love the circus and we know this much: if you want to see the best circus performers in the world, you need to do come to Montreal to see Cirque du Soleil: Totem…
