One of the highlights of this 2021 edition, the spectacular video series LES CANONS DU CIRQUE: DUELS IN THE CITY, conceived and directed by Sarah Beauséjour and broadcast exclusively online, inaugurating this new digital creation in a big way! Inspired by "battle" style confrontations, this creation directed by Kiril Shmidov proposes five epic duels, putting forward the audacity, the surpassing of oneself and the immense risk-taking inherent in the circus.
At the same time, the beauty of the city of Montreal is highlighted, with each challenge taking place in a key location in the city, resulting in breathtaking performances and views! A balancing act on the roof of the stadium tower, a unicycle on the railing of a bridge of the Lachine Canal or hand to hand, in the heart of the fountain of the Place des Festivals. A dynamic, modern and urban concept that illustrates the circus and the city like never before! The public is invited to vote for its favorite performance, at each capsule, and the five winners will be revealed at the end of the Festival!
