Friendliness, proximity, boldness and, above all, creativity and diversity: for its ninth year already, the MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE team is proud to present the best of contemporary circus creation, demystifying preconceived ideas, one of which being that circus is always the same!
Welcome to one of the most diversified and surprising festivals in our city. MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE originates from the desire to have all festivalgoers discover a wide array of disciplines, aesthetics and emotions performed by local and foreign artists and companies.
Contemporary circus is a major art form that is well worth discovering. Beyond language and cultural barriers, MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE 2018 will break the frontiers of disciplines. It will please dance enthusiasts at the Wilder building, Lhasa de Sela music fans at Théâtre Outremont, while an electric jazz cabaret will take place for the first time at Théâtre Saint-Denis, all of it reaffirming Quartier Latin as the core of the Festival. Even babies will be part of the fun thanks to the amazing Mobile!
This complementarity of proposals, this tendency to always amaze and please, this proximity between artists and public can be enjoyed with the free outdoor programming in Quartier Latin, which will continue to conquer the urban space in a different way, mixing humour, poetry and poise in a casual and warm atmosphere. You are invited to get lost in the crowd and experience the extraordinary, and then join us at Quartier Général for a drink after the show.
We also welcome some 300 professionals from every country, taking part in the not-the-be-missed event in the field in North America: The International Market of Contemporary Circus (MICC). For four days, showcases, meetings and lectures will contribute to asserting Montréal as circus arts capital of the world.
In anticipation of our tenth anniversary next year, we wish Festival enthusiasts, future fans, tourists, onlookers, passerby, circus aficionados and, most of all, Montréal lovers, an unforgettable 9th edition!
Have a great Festival, everyone,
Executive and Programming Director
