Presentation of Canadian made alternative circus performance shows that are READY TO TOUR.


In July 2020, creators and presenters of the circus arts from around the world will be mobilized in Montréal for MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE. La TOHU, project manager of the Festival, will present the 11th edition of this unmissable event!

With the goal of diversifying their programming while representing and staying attuned to the staged arts milieu, the TOHU and La Chapelle will, for a second year, co-present a bold program. This will be an opportunity for the general public, presenters, and programmers attending the Marché International du Cirque Contemporain (MICC) to discover a different kind of circus and to expand their understanding of circus arts.
