Oh, the joys of love!

The newest creation of the Festival, which storyline is based on love, transforms its acrobats into Juliets and Orpheuses! See in the show the acrobats of Les Minutes complètement cirque...numériques , presented at 6:30PM and 9:30PM.

Tender or whimsical passion, inspired by the divine or friendship, gets revealed in a myriad of scenes taking over Place Émilie-Gamelin. From the brand new pyramid stage right to the middle of the crowd, dozens of lovers get kindled in a sigh, flying over the audience, carried by cinematic music. Let yourself be charmed by their courteous balancing acts and aerial flirting!

To declare its love to Montreal for its 375th anniversary, the Festival’s new creation will exceptionally keep charming all through July! Strength, lyrical flights and surreal suspensions: summer will be burning hot!
