La 10ᵉ édition de MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE de 4 au 14 juillet 2019

« MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE, présenté par Loto-Québec, dévoile les détails de la programmation en salle de sa 10e édition qui se tiendra du 4 au 14 juillet 2019. Un programme haut en couleurs et riche en émotions pour célébrer comme il se doit les 10 ans de l’événement ! Ainsi, dès le 4 juillet prochain, les rendez-vous mémorables se succéderont et, pendant onze jours de fête, les prouesses inégalées et l’inventivité infinie des créateurs du cirque d’aujourd’hui se déploieront au cœur de deux pôles principaux : LA TOHU et LE QUARTIER DES SPECTACLES, pôle quartier latin. LES BILLETS SONT EN VENTE DÈS MAINTENANT. 

MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE est un Festival rassembleur et mobilisateur proposant chaque année, en juillet, une programmation cirque éclatée à travers la ville. Pendant 11 jours, Montréal vit au rythme des arts du cirque et ses salles de spectacles, ses rues, ses parcs et ses trottoirs deviennent le théâtre de performances, d’ici et d’ailleurs, hautes en couleur.

Rendez-vous incontournable, il présente une diversité de formes et d’expressions en proposant des espaces où se rencontrent les plus talentueux représentants de l’univers cirque.

Créé en 2010, MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE est le fruit d’un rêve collectif. La TOHU, maître d’œuvre du projet, avec le soutien du Cirque Éloize, des 7 doigts de la main, du Cirque du Soleil, de l’École nationale de Cirque et d’En Piste, ont mis en commun leurs expertises, leurs ressources et leurs volontés pour créer le 1er festival international en arts du cirque en Amérique du Nord. »

Événement Hors Piste 2019 : cirque et mixité sociale au cœur du Village

Cirque Hors Piste est un organisme montréalais  dédié au cirque social, qui offre un espace alternatif et inclusif de création aux personnes ayant un parcours de vie marginalisé. L’organisme favorise l’apprentissage individuel, social et collectif par le biais des arts du cirque.

Hors Piste 2019– invite le public à sortir des sentiers battus pour assister à un événement qui allie arts du cirque et mixité sociale. Le samedi 13 juillet, rendez-vous à midi coin St-Hubert/Sainte-Catherine Est pour la parade d’ouverture. Ce happening participatif sous le thème des « tropiques »  se poursuit au PARC DE L’ESPOIR coin Panet/Sainte-Catherine Est. Venez vous dandiner comme des palmiers dans le vent! La magie de l’été s’opère avec une faune funky, des pieds bien ensablés et des chemises hawaïennes à profusion.

Démarche sociale et artistique- Présenté dans le cadre du festival Montréal Complètement Cirque, l’événement Hors Piste se démarque par son action à la fois sociale et artistique. En plus de permettre à des artistes de rue montréalais de se produire dans leur ville, l’événement met en valeur la capacité de mobilisation de personnes marginalisées.

Des jeunes de 15 à 30 ans, en situation de grande précarité, ont monté des numéros de cirque. Les décors dans lesquels évoluent les artistes sont l’œuvre de participants de l’organisme CACTUS Montréal. L’événement Hors Piste représente ainsi l’aboutissement d’une démarche qui jumèle création artistique et intervention sociale.”
