Radio-Canada partners with MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE to present host of circus events

July 4, 2016, Montreal

For the seventh straight year, Radio-Canada will be a major partner in MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE, a one-of-a-kind circus arts festival running from July 7 to 17. Bring the whole family to explore the magical world of the circus through a host of exhilarating events that are sure to amaze and enthrall!

TRANSIT at TOHU, July 7 to 16

Radio-Canada is presenting Quebec circus troupe Flip FabriQue’s brand-new show TRANSIT. In this world première, multidisciplinary acrobats share the highs and lows of an eventful and electrifying life in the circus. They perform the wildest acrobatic stunts and some breathtaking physical feats in a pure celebration of life.


From July 12 to 17, on St. Denis Street, in the heart of the Quartier Latin neighbourhood, children of all ages will be invited to try out ICI’s Complètement Cirque circuit. This series of challenges inspired by the youth TV program À ne pas faire à la maison [Don’t try this at home] tests, experiments with and demystifies the science of everyday life. Wake up your inner circus artist by testing yourself on a fun and exciting multidisciplinary circuit! You’ll discover just how hard it is – and practically die laughing – as you try out the high wire, the trapeze, the trampoline and other acrobatic challenges.


To show the festival through the eyes of a child, Radio-Canada has produced a series of short web videos featuring the young Lola Bourque, who’s completely circus crazy. In her lively, upbeat reports, she talks up the MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE shows and events you won’t want to miss. Keep an eye out for Lola’s videos starting July 7 on Radio-Canada’s social media pages.
