A CREATIVE SPACE

A VENUE FOR PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS

AN EXCEPTIONAL SETTING FOR YOUR EVENT

Our free training spaces are open.

After several months of complete closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we can finally welcome artists in free training thanks to the support of the Quebec Government. Rehearsal spaces specific to the needs of the circus arts have been set up to ensure compliance with the standards established by Public Health.
We warmly thank the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, En Piste, et Culture and the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications Québec.

Criteria for approval for free training:

- Graduate or graduate of a recognized professional circus school.
And/or
- Have a minimum of two (2) years of experience as a professional circus artist with a recognized circus company, including touring experience.

If you meet one of these two criteria, you must send us an emai via the form : 

- Portrait photo
- Updated CV
- Video links of each of the disciplines in which you wish to be approved.

Creation Residencies - Impact Project

The Conseil des Arts de Montréal, Les 7 Doigts, Cirque Éloize, En Piste and TOHU are launching the first edition of a brand new pilot project.

This project will provide an opportunity for an arts collective or a circus arts organization to develop original creations, through research and exploration of new dramatic writing for circus arts, unfettered by the constraints of presentation. It also aims to promote independent, “auteur” circus works and the emergence of new aesthetics. 

The recipient will receive a Conseil des Arts de Montréal grant to carry out a four-week residency, which will provide an opportunity to achieve an initial stage of documented development, further enabling them to seek out partners, and both public and private sources of funding. The recipient will also receive professional guidance and excellent networking opportunities from the circus arts national network, En piste.
