Duration30 minutes
PlaceJardins Gamelin (Métro Berri-UQAM)


Our newest creation will be performed at Jardins Gamelin, in the Quartier des spectacles, for a total of 10 evenings!

Here's Phénix !

A large circus ring just like a big top! On a bare 360-degree stage at the core of Jardins Gamelin, dozens of acrobats execute movements and lifts in a series of scenes ruled by the body.

From the ruins of the past, a new cycle begins for men and women. Fragile, light, mobile, the bodies awaken… then, frantic, powerful, blatant, they come together, rebuild, and fly away, such as the circle that carries life.

Take place near the stage and let yourself be captivated by the story of the never-ending cycle of life, told in acrobatics, Cyr wheel, dance, juggling and aerial feats!

About Anthony Venisse, Conceptor and director of Les Minutes and Phénix

Anthony Venisse, originally from France, made Québec his own almost 20 years ago.

In addition to being a Montréal’s National Circus School graduate, he is professionally trained at the Circus Space in London.

This multitalented artist is successively assistant choreographer, teacher, clown and now stage director for independent shows as well as companies such as Cirque du Soleil. In 2007, he presents Le Concierge at TOHU, and again in 2014 during the Festival. He directed several cabarets in Germany and will contribute this year to one of the two creations by the National Circus School graduates.

Designer and director for MINUTES COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE and the large-scale production at Place Émilie-Gamelin since the very beginning, Anthony is a central pillar of MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE. Never ceasing to renew himself and pushing the boundaries for each of his creations, he brings much of the magic well known to the Festival.
