Festival TOHU Andrew Miller Festival TOHU Andrew Miller



This summer is very special for all of us and it was just as special for MONTREAL COMPLETEMENT CiRQUE which, in one edition, became MONTREAL PRESQUE CiRQUE. Every year, the Festival brings life to the streets, halls, parks and neighbourhoods of the city... This 2020 edition was more discreet, but oh so much fun! MONTREAL COMPLETEMENT CiRQUE has adapted to bring the circus arts to life!
