From July 7, discover the new original circus series Au hasard de la ville. Over eight episodes of approximately 5 minutes each, these short films will introduce us to the poetic and wild world of a floor polisher, interpreted by Nathalie Claude, common thread between the different performances of circus artists. Through trampoline, Korean board, juggling and Cyr wheel acts - to name only a few - we will discover the urban architecture of the Quartier des spectacles in a new light.

Au hasard de la ville will be broadcast on and ICI ARTV thanks to the precious collaboration of Radio-Canada, one of the event’s major partner.

Produced by Parce Que Films, and written and directed by Brigitte Poupart, the Au hasard de la ville series innovates the digital presentation of circus arts, with immersive camera work that goes beyond frontal capture. What’s more, the creation of the original music was entrusted to singer-songwriter Pilou.

For passers-by to benefit even more from these professional artists’ impressive acts, some circus performers will also offer short performances at the Quartier des spectacles. With no warning, solo or duet circus artists will appear in the street, accompanied by musicians from the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal. For this first collaboration, a trio of brass players and a trio composed of an oboe, bassoon and clarinet player will perform alternately, to our delight. And to think that only a few lucky people will be able to attend these performances!
