Past event

Starting July 30, 5 p.m., passers-by, residents, joggers and tourists alike will need to be on the lookout, because...

The CIRCUS is coming to the OLD CITY! For the occasion, three leading Quebec contemporary circus companies - Cirque Éloize and Les 7 Doigts  - will offer free performances, every Friday evenings (5:00 to 8:00 p.m.), Saturdays (11:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.) and Sundays (11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) at the Old Port of Montreal! A Tohu production, with the precious collaboration of the City of Montreal and the Gouvernement du Québec.

De mille feux // by Cirque Éloize from July 30 to August 15 

Emerging from a strange pink box, crazy characters invade the Old Port of Montreal in search of a new lease on life. After a storm that left them speechless, these castaways will find inspiration through circus, poetry and music. From spark to pulse, to the great whirlwind of life that finally resumes, it is a true rebirth! De mille feux unfolds in spontaneous performances in the heart of the Old Port.

Brume // by Les 7 Doigts from August 20 to September 5
As the fog lifts and the circus emerges from the clouds, a collective of artists has gathered to perform once again for an art-hungry public. Moving through the urban landscape, ephemeral artistic moments will push the boundaries of circus
technique in a nod to traditional circus by putting the audience on the edge of their seats with moments of pure acrobatic virtuosity. It's time to resurface in front of a live audience and share with them our love of audacity and circus arts. Welcome to BRUME!
