Scotch & Soda - Montréal Cirque Festival


  • Théâtre St-Denis 1594 Rue Saint-Denis Montréal, QC, H2X 3K3 Canada (map)

MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE is a Festival that brings people together across the city every July with a stunning circus program. For 11 days, Montreal moves to the rhythm of circus arts. Its venues, streets, parks, and sidewalks become stages to showcase colourful, high-flying performances from here and around the world.

★★★★★ A complete thriller from end to end. - EDINBURGH REPORTER
★★★★★ A multi-disciplined, genre defying cacophony. - SCENESTR

Présenté en collaboration avec le Festival Juste pour rire. Au théâtre Saint-Denis 2 à partir du 10 juillet!


Scored by Lucian McGuiness. Set in a joyfully messy universe where swing, jazz, rogue circus and cabaret atmosphere intertwine, Scotch & Soda is a music party a tad rowdy, incredibly festive and absolutely contagious. Between travelling circuses from the Great Depression and the 19th century European carnivals, we find ourselves in a parallel universe where entertainment is the byword!
The six musicians, some of which have shared the stage with legends such as Lou Reed and Cat Empire, lead the acrobatics at a frenetic pace. Featuring world-class acrobats performing the best of a wide range of disciplines, this party which should be enjoyed in one gulp, hopelessly sweeps its audience, who will find very difficult to stay quietly in place.
Let the music begin!
