Montreal is a creative city. The past few years, the city has created a lot of different cultural events or festivals to entertain Montrealers and tourists. While some festivals are internationally popular, some other events are created every year and still have to make themselves known.
One of these new festivals is Montréal Complètement Cirque. Montréal Complètement Cirque is a new international festival about circus. Starting this year, Montréal Complètement Cirque will take place every summer, in July.
The project, born from the collaboration of the Cirque Éloize, Les 7 doigts de la main, Cirque du Soleil, the National Circus School and En Piste contributes to the promotion of circus arts.
While some festivals take place on the streets of Montreal, this one is indoors and takes place in several places, all around the city. Indeed, Montréal Complètement Cirque’s shows can be seen at L’Olympia, Le Lion d’Or, La TOHU, L’Usine C, l’Espace Go etc…
Amongst the different artists and companies participating to the festival can be named: Les 7 doigts de la, le Cirque Eloize, No Fit State Circus, le Cirque du Soleil and many more. Companies from Belgium (EA EO; Les Mains Sales; Les Zyrgomatik), Australia (A4 Circus Ensemble), Germany (Habbe & Meik), Spain (Albadulake), Wales (NoFit State) are also part of the event.
Tickets are available at La Vitrine, l’Olympia or through Admission. Montréal Complètement Cirque offers discounts to kids, families or packages.
