As every year for the past 12, MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE will bring the city to life with outdoor programming that is as rich and varied as it is innovative! Since the creation of the Festival in 2010, the Quartier latin area of the Quartier des spectacles has been the heart of the festivities. Year after year, Saint-Denis Street is revamped, and this year, the area will undergo another impressive make over. From street furniture to shop windows, the circus arts will transform this emblematic artery. As well, a brand-new digital component will be added to the free programming for 2021. Saint-Denis Street For the first time, immersive staging – with artistic direction by Sarah Beauséjour and production design by Véronique Bertrand – will dramatically transform the emblematic Montreal artery. When night falls, the public will enter a strange yet fascinating universe, populated by circus artists acting as if they have always been there! Through a design full of versatile street furniture up to circus standards that blends in with the street architecture, a space-time continuum exists where nothing is ordinary. As they walk in a surprise-filled décor, where circus art becomes urban art, visitors of all ages will witness striking goings-on that will spark their imaginations and give them the vague impression of a dream! Every day on Rue Saint-Denis, Between Ontario and de Maisonneuve Completely Circus Windows Another innovation this year is that artists will take over the windows of three restaurants on rue Saint-Denis, making them their homes! Every day, these three windows will be turned into a venue for circus, musical or dance performances: a curious cabaret as imagined by the guest artist. These multiple and unique performances will surprise pedestrians and neighbourhood residents, provoking chance encounters and experiences as quirky as they are entertaining. Every day, from 7:30pm, on Rue Saint-Denis, Between Ontario and de Maisonneuve Roving Performances Various roving performances blending music, dance and circus arts will invade rue Saint-Denis every night during the Festival. A “Felliniesque” fanfare will accompany the performers as they pass by; percussions and Guinean acrobats will get visitors moving with their explosive street performances; and an Inuit circus troupe will introduce the public to its fabulous legends and rich culture. Flash mobs will also perform in various spaces! Every day, from 5:30pm, on Rue Saint-Denis, Between Sherbrooke and de Maisonneuve
