The National Circus School (NCS) graduation show allows the 2023 cohort artists, who are concluding their school career, to offer unique performances that showcase their many talents. This ultimate exercise in creation and production is a true rite of passage that demonstrates all the work accomplished during their years at the NCS. This professional show will certainly impress spectators who will have the pleasure of seeing these young circus artists perform prior to joining circus companies.

A creation by Marie-Josée Gauthier

Young, gifted, ardent, in great shape, they are the magnificent ones! I wanted this Parades to be a reflection of them; a reflection of a world that exalts the "I" but infused with the "we" without which nothing happens, nor will happen.
Here they are, sometimes adorned with their talent, their strength, their mastery that they display with an insolent casualness, sometimes dressed in doubts, worried about the progress of the world, looking for answers.
Step by step, the artifices lose their necessity, the overall movement carries away the vanities. Narcissus can go to bed. What remains is the joy of having crossed these pivotal years together and a pure whistle that rises in the night.
