VICE & VERTU



Vice & Vertu,  an original production created for Montreal's 375th Anniversary and the Festival Montréal Complètement Cirque, was presented in the summer of 2017 at the Société des Arts Technologiques.

For one month, The 7 Fingers invited the audience to relive the rise and fall of Montreal’s cabarets and music halls, as they stepped back into the golden years of Montreal’s red light district and burgeoning cultural scene.

Montreal was celebrated in Vice & Vertu through circus, theatre, comedy, video projections, burlesque acts, and music, forming a kaleidoscopic experience. The promenade performance featured encounters with notorious and pivotal historical figures — symbols of a vivid era in the history of the city.

Press Release

Thirty acrobats, musicians and actors will enliven this unique pathway where each spectator is invited to experience something incredible.
