Saint-Denis street

In addition to the dazzling décor of Place Pasteur, Saint-Denis Street will once again be completely circus - thanks to an immersive universe! Sets and diverted urban furniture, versatile, with circus codes. A living environment where nothing is ordinary, where circus art becomes urban art: a table that suddenly turns into a circus ring; a German wheel that becomes a public bench; a trapeze sky and more await you between Sherbrooke and Sainte-Catherine streets.

The festival has put together an astonishing program of spontaneous and ambulatory performances combining music, dance and circus arts that will take over rue Saint-Denis during the entire festival. Stay tuned, many surprises await you!


PISTE DE BAS DE CÔTE: A clowning space with a relaxation zone for the whole family, this track offers performances that explore movement and the body in all its forms, featuring disciplines that the little ones particularly appreciate: acrodance, juggling and clowning!

GRANDE TABLÉE: Back this year, this spectacular acrobatic table, a gathering place for festival-goers in the heart of Saint-Denis Street, will once again be the scene of daring feats and group acrobatic performances, notably using the height of the venue.

ARCHE EMERY: Here, we raise our eyes to the sky to appreciate the madness and the audacity, but also the creativity of the acrobats of this aerial space. Straps, swinging trapeze or dancing trapeze, smooth rope, fabric, hoop and balancing flesh, a great diversity of disciplines and creative approaches will be offered. And, in addition to having a high technical level, the proposals reveal quite innovative artistic research!

LE MUR: On this unusual track, everything is done vertically! Discover two artists performing their act on the wall of the old Atmosphere store ! He plays the guitar, she dances, everything to spend a magical moment. A creation specially designed for the festival by Daphnée Sergerie and Vincent Massey.

PISTE SAINT-DENIS: Erected in front of the Saint-Denis Theater, this track will display more conceptual performances, both poetic and sensitive, seeing a dialogue between different traditional and contemporary worlds.
