DING DONG...It's time for the Last Judgment!
Let the lighted bell tower of the Monastery guide you to the Cabaret du Jugement Dernier!
Taking place in Le Jardin, this circus cabaret in partnership with Montréal Complètement Cirque is a friendly competition between the best artists in the province.
At nightfall, taking advantage of the light summer breeze, the crème de la crème of the circus scene will parade before your amazed eyes to present their original acts from July 6, in a magical atmosphere at the foot of the church tower*. Who will win the Golden Chalice or the Public's Favourite? The suspense will remain until the final night, when the jury members, of which you are a part, will announce the winners.
These acrobats will transport you into their complex and rich universe, just like the city and its multiple facets. Sometimes vibrant, intense or eccentric, the acts presented will also be gentle or melancholic.
To entertain his flock, the DJ on the decks will get you into the dance and the P'tit Sacristain team will quench your thirst with the signature cocktail of the moment, a glass of local wine or a cold beer from the local micro. Join us in seventh heaven?
*In case of rain, the event will be held indoors.
About Le Monastère
Founded in 2016 by Rosalie Beauchamp and Guillaume Blais, Le Monastère is a non-profit social economy organization that actively contributes to the popularization of the circus as well as to the influence of Montreal as the world capital of this art. For the founders, artists who have traveled the world with the greatest companies such as Cirque du Soleil and the great German cabarets, it is essential to offer new ways of appreciating this art to a public eager for cultural novelties. By privileging the cabaret form, Le Monastère allows spectators to discover, or rediscover, the most talented artists in a warm and relaxed atmosphere. Inspired by European cabarets, the artistic vision of Le Monastère highlights Quebec-based talent. Located in Montreal's St. Jax Centre, a church inaugurated in 1864 on St. Catherine Street West, the organization offers the public the opportunity to live unique experiences. s.
The Monastery thanks the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Conseil des arts de Montréal, PME MTL centre-ville, the SDC Montréal centre-ville as well as the Centre St Jax for the realization of these cabarets. We also acknowledge the support of the Government of Canada.
