Get inspired by our lists built around a theme, and experience Montréal to the hilt.
Only in Montréal can you pull up a chair, enjoy a drink and have world-class circus artists performing within arm’s reach. Such is the case with Le Monastère, a cabaret spectacular that offers a new way to appreciate circus arts, up close and personal.
Le Monastère’s troupe of first-rate circus acts dazzles audiences in an exceptional downtown venue plus takes its show on the road to perform at special events and private functions.
Set in a 19th-century neo-Gothic church, Le Monastère trades in the Big Top for a cabaret-style setting complete with a central stage, bar and tables proximate to the artists. Local contemporary performers showcase an array of circus styles, each creation more original than the last.
Thanks to Le Monastère, you can run away with the circus or have the circus come to you: this non-profit company offers turnkey entertainment with shows adapted to your event concept. A variety of themes are available, such as traditional circus, Great Gatsby, and more.
From interactive roving entertainment (who doesn’t love a wandering juggler?) to first-rate, strategically-timed performances (a contortionist between meal courses) to a 30-minute show complete with Ring Master, Le Monastère turns any event into an exceptional circus experience.
