at the Old Port of Montreal, August 20 to September 5

As the fog lifts and the circus emerges from the clouds, a collective of artists has gathered to perform once again for an art-hungry public. Moving through the urban landscape, ephemeral artistic moments will push the boundaries of circus technique in a nod to traditional circus by putting the audience on the edge of their seats with moments of pure acrobatic virtuosity. It’s time to resurface in front of a live audience and share with them our love of audacity and circus arts. Welcome to BRUME!

in Old Montreal, from July 30 to September 5

Cirque Alfonse brings the workers and sailors of yesteryear back to life in the streets of Old Montreal! Artists from the famous Saint-Alphonse-Rodriguez company take this historic district by storm, evoking the sound of old horse-drawn carriages on the cobblestones, the stories of railroad workers and the excitement of the arrival of cargo ships. True to its tradition, Cirque Alfonse revisits a part of the past, offering amazing performances, scattered inside the old fortifications. They will be accompanied for the occasion by several Montreal circus artists.
