International Market of Contemporary Circus

MICC 2019: JULY 8 TO 11

MICC Schedule

Welcome to the 5th edition of the International Market of Contemporary Circus (MICC), a TOHU initiative embedded within North America’s premier international contemporary circus festival, MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CIRQUE (July, 4-14).

The MICC Market constitutes North America’s most important single-discipline professional encounter for the field of contemporary circus, offering North American, European, and other international presenters from all disciplines a one-stop research opportunity to discover and connect with touring artists and works from Canada and around the world. It features market-specific networking, dialogue, artist pitches, and other activities, as well as opportunities for group attendance at Festival performances.

With its International Market of Contemporary Circus, TOHU is proud to have helped increased the visibility of so many circus artists and professionals over the years and to have created a key annual point of encounter for the circus world.

MICC goals:
▪ Support and promote the development of circus arts on the international scene.
▪ Encourage artist-presenter encounters, discussions, and opportunities.
▪ Develop a North American network for the presentation and touring of contemporary circus.
▪ Raise the profile of creative artists in Canada.
