Montreal Cirque Festival

Originality, festivities and thrills over eleven days, and beyond…

The 8th edition of TOHU’s MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE Festival, will be held from July 6 to 16. In honor of to the city’s 375th anniversary festivities, it promises several new elements, including an encounter with digital arts, numerous events, some of which will continue beyond the eleven-day Festival—for the whole month of July!—, as well as collaborations with the festival Juste pour rire and the Casino de Montréal. Once again, the city will welcome with open arms, in its venues, streets and neighbourhoods, the best circus artists on the planet. Montreal, international circus metropolis, will burst with world premieres, surprises and discoveries. Shows originating from France, Australia and Canada will be presented with a focus on Quebec companies.

Festival opening show and WORLD PREMIERE!
TOHU, July 5 to 11
After cheering for Timber! and Barbu, festival-goers are invited to a rock-show like musical fresco, an invitation to gather together, a circus and musical celebration of heaven and hell, the Alfonse way… Well, TABARNAK! We’ll have fun.

From this liberating swearword—yesterday’s rebellion almost trivial today—, our favourite dwellers of the past offer us an unbridled great mass, and revamp the church! All aboard for this refreshing communion!

Under the big top at TOHU, July 7 to 16

After traveling all around the world in their hot-air balloon, with their show Made in Kouglistan, the Gluminovitch brothers are back in Canada. And this time, Grandma and the kids are coming along!

During a one of a kind evening, the exotic siblings set up under the big top to uncover Kouglistanian rituals. Unachievable feats, wild traditional dances, crazy juggling and surreal illusions are just some of the surprises the family has in store. A journey to a strange country that you won’t forget!
