Who’s going to heaven?
Always willing to welcome on stage the best of contemporary circus artists, Le Monastère took advantage of the MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE buzz to organize a very special circus cabaret - Le Jugement Dernier!

Attend a unique contest in the Jardin of Centre St Jax, animated and dressed by Le Monastère and XPMTL! Take advantage of the summer temperatures and see the province’s best artists parade before your eyes and those of a jury composed of major players of the Quebec circus scene. They will present their acts in their purest forms, just as they imagined them, and you will have the opportunity to vote for your favorite.
Who will win the Golden Chalice or the People's Choice Award? Attend the awards ceremony on the last day and see which acts have won!

For the duration of the Festival, come stroll through the Jardin and be surprised by Montreal's artistic animations and surprises... A gathering space to make citizens rediscover the circus’ artistic gems.

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, both 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 at the St. Jax Centre in Montreal, inaugurated in 1864 on St. Catherine Street West, the organization offers spectators the opportunity to live unique experiences.
