THE FREE OUTDOOR PROGRAMMING AT A GLANCE
MINUTES COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE
See you on Saint-Denis street, corner of Ontario – JULY 5 TO 15 (BREAK ON THE 9TH)
6:30 P.M. AND 9:30 P.M
A swarm of acrobats make Saint-Denis Street resonate! Joining forces by dozens to build human pyramids or play alley cats in each and every corner, these masters take over the street with acrobatics. The skillful performers create a mesmerizing acrobatic wave that no one can resist, and get passersby to join in on the adventure through playful and solemn interactions. The public is invited to join in as the group travels toward Place Émilie-Gamelin.
PLACE ÉMILIE-GAMELIN, PRESENTED BY LOTO-QUÉBEC, JULY 5 TO 15 (BREAK ON THE 9TH)
7:15 P.M. AND 10:15 P.M.
Designer and director for MINUTES COMPLÈTEMENT CIRQUE and the large-scale production at Place Émilie-Gamelin since 2010, ANTHONY VENISSE invites festivalgoers to gather around a large circus ring just like a big top and let themselves be captivated by the story of the never-ending cycle of life, told in acrobatics, Cyr wheel, dance, juggling and aerial feats! On a bare 360-degree stage, dozens of acrobats execute movements and lifts in a series of scenes ruled by the body. ANTHONY VENISSE 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. PHÉNIX is his 8th creation.
