Graduates show 2020

National Circus School

Following the measures taken by the Government of Quebec prohibiting the holding of indoor events for more than 250 people, we have to cancel the show. The ticket office will contact ticket holders as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding, we share your sadness for this news and we hope to see you soon at La TOHU!


A must-see event for fans of spectacular and emotional circus! After years of intensive training, the graduating National Circus School artists showcase the result of their exceptional top-level training journey. Audience members will be the first to witness the work of the future ambassadors of our circus. See the beginning of their international careers. Led by a multidisciplinary team of seasoned creators, the artists share their passion, spirit and artistic and acrobatic mastery on stage. The future at its best! The new professionals master more than a dozen disciplines, including acro-dance, aerial hoop, rope, balancing, tightwire, slackwire, juggling, hand to hand, Chinese pole, Cyr wheel, aerial straps, and silks.

Also, see the tryptich of unmissable artists in their second year of higher education at Chapiteau Studio at the National Circus School in June.

It is dedicated to the education and training of professional circus artists, as well as to research and innovation in the circus arts and their pedagogy.
