Montreal Families

Circus festival has two family-friendly shows

Get ready to bend, bounce, flip, and flex with some of the hottest talent in circus at the sixth edition of Montreal Complètement Cirque from July 2 to 12. Put on by TOHU, the festival will showcase 10 indoor shows and numerous outdoor events. Among the family-friendly selection at this year’s festival are Machine de cirque and The Pianist.

Machine de cirque is the self-titled production of a brand new company. The show tells the story of five guys who survived for 15 years after the end of the world. Frustrated with feeling so lonely, they venture out in search of other survivors. With the help of an astounding, mystical machine, they navigate a world bereft of women and children, exploring the world they used to know. The troupe is made up of four acrobats and one multi-instrumentalist and together they weave music, clowning, poetry and acrobatics into a comedic and heartfelt narrative. It runs from July 8 to 12 at TOHU.

The Pianist stars Thomas Monckton as a talented pianist whose sole focus is to impress his audience. Combining traditional clowning and modern circus skills, Monckton will teach audiences the high price that is paid when one is lured in by the promise of glamour. He has delighted audiences for years with his clumsy, Charlie Chaplin-type antics and this continues as Monckton’s passion for perfection takes a disastrous, yet comedic turn. It is being presented at the Centaur Theatre July 3 to 9.
