Happening all of July, no excuse to miss it!

Oh, the joys of love!

The newest creation of the Festival, which storyline is based on love, transforms its acrobats into Juliets and Orpheuses!

Tender or whimsical passion, inspired by the divine or friendship, gets revealed in a myriad of scenes taking over Place Émilie-Gamelin. From the brand new pyramid stage right to the middle of the crowd, dozens of lovers get kindled in a sigh, flying over the audience, carried by cinematic music. Let yourself be charmed by their courteous balancing acts and aerial flirting!

To declare its love to Montreal for its 375th anniversary, the Festival’s new creation will exceptionally keep charming all through July! Strength, lyrical flights and surreal suspensions: summer will be burning hot!

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

Originally from France, Anthony has adopted Québec nearly 20 years ago.
In addition to being a graduate from Montréal’s National Circus School, he was professionally trained at Circus Space in London.

This multi-talented artist has played various roles, from assistant-choreographer, to teacher, clown, and now director for independent shows and companies such as Cirque du Soleil. He performed Le Concierge at TOHU in 2007, and in 2014, as part of the Festival.

Anthony is a central pillar of MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE as the conceptor and director of the MINUTES COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE and the large-scale show at Place Émilie-Gamelin since their beginning. Constantly renewing himself and pushing back the limits of his creations, he contributed greatly to the magic that is the hallmark of the Festival.
