MONTREAL — By STEVEN HOWELL
Summer in Montreal is completely fun, completely festive and, now, it's completely circus.
La Tohu, the city's premier circus venue, presents Montreal Completement Cirque, a midsummer fest with all things circus in mind. The event combines free and ticketed circus-performance arts and activities with more than 80 events in all from July 7 through 24.
"The festival is held all over the city, so we really are trying to make Montreal completely circus," Tohu communications and marketing director Zoe Beaudry said. "And we are the only circus festival in North America."
La Tohu's main venue in the St. Michel neighborhood plays home to many events; as does Espace Go in the Plateau on St. Laurent Boulevard, along the waterfront promenade in the Old Port; and a temporary big top at the Radio Canada parking lot in the Gay Village, to name a few.
"We're very young and very new, but we had a great time last year," Beaudry said of this second edition. "That energy and diversity is one of our goals again this year, to show how diversified circus arts really are."
Another goal is affordability.
"We wanted something very family oriented so our events are free or very affordable for every show."read more at:http://pressrepublican.com/0500_what_to_do/x999477109/Montreal-gears-up-for-summer-circus
