MTL Clown Festival
September 18 - September 22
September 18 – 22, 2019
The Lovers of Laughter, we are the passionate gatherers of fools.
In the breathtaking backdrop of Canada’s Circus Capital, Montréal, our community of artist are able to give life to a new festival celebrating the diverse creation of the Clown. The MTL Clown Fest showcases artists both local and abroad, creating a link to communities of Clowns throughout the world.
Founded in 2016, the mandate of The MTL Clown Fest is to create space for all levels of performers to showcase original works that fall under the Clown, Bouffon or Physical Theatre spectrum. Included in the mandate we welcome people of all genders, but are making an effort to increase representation of women-identified, gender-non-conforming and trans performers. With this in mind, we will make an effort to strive for equal and proportionate representation in our space. We are dedicated to cultivating a multi-cultural program, welcoming French, English and Nonsensical Clown Language, as well as a vast multitude of other cultural Tricksters.
