Cabaret du Jugement Dernier
Le Monastère - Canada - Québec
July 7-8-9 and 14-15-16
**It's Doomsday Time!
Le Monastère celebrates circus performers in an unusual sanctuary, inviting them to share their creations at the foot of the bell tower of St. Jax Church. It strengthens the morale of its flock in the great outdoors by organizing the Cabaret du Jugement Dernier and beatifying more and more followers in Le Jardin adjoining the rue Sainte-Catherine. The best artists of the province will parade under the eyes of the faithful spectators, and those of a jury composed of the great names of the Quebec circus who will vote for their favorite works. With a drink in hand and the DJ at the turntables, this friendly competition will take them to seventh heaven.
Who will win the Golden Chalice or the Public's Favourite? The suspense is all over until the awards ceremony on the last night.
New cultural jewel, Le Monastère becomes a missionary of circus arts in downtown Montreal. What a reason to have faith in the circus of tomorrow!
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, 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.
Le Monastère thanks Canadian Heritage, Centre St Jax, Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, l'Alliance de l’industrie touristique du Québec, Conseil des arts de Montréal, Tourisme Montréal, SDC Montréal centre-ville and Desjardins for their support.
