PIT BULL - an art show & fundraising event

Pit Bull Art Show

Over 40 artists will come together to celebrate the diversity and individuality of the pit bull while providing a forum in which to educate and dispel the myths and hysteria that so often surrounds them. 50% of all art profits and 100% of all food* and drink profits will go directly to Sit With Me Shelter Dog Rescue - a volunteer run organization that saves, rehabilitates, and finds forever homes for death row dogs in Ontario and Quebec. We hope to give a voice to the voiceless and show the public how truly amazing our bully dogs are!

MTL Clown Festival: Soizick Hébert ​& ​Frédérick Desroches + La Porte Française

Montreal Clown Festival

Soizick Hébert ​& ​ Frédérick Desroches: The concert of that madcap eccentric Jackie changes direction when the crazy Diva and ukulele player, realised she gets Edgar, as the insipid back up pianist. Edgar is discouraged the way music goes. Jackie uses her mimics, juggling or magic skills to bring the various repertoire, which travel from crooner songs to hip hop dance as well as original pieces, to a parade of brief, funny and punched sketches to perturb him. The hectic and tense ambiance between Jackie & Edgar brings hilarity all the way through the show. Avec/with: Soizick Hébert, Frédérick Desroches.

MTL Clown Festival: The Rendez-Vous + Wanted

The Radiant

While waiting for her date to finally arrive for a romantic evening out, our coquette and ever so slightly foolish heroine piles on the eccentricities to overcome her disappointment. In a succession of personas ranging from the diva, the joker to the cheeky minx, the dazzling Krin Haglund is a master of comedy, aerial silks, juggling and the Cyr Wheel. She is a true virtuoso and the first woman ever to perform on the Cyr! This is the first one-woman show for this outstanding artist. The Rendez-vous is set in a quirky 1920s cabaret where romance, hilarity, buffoonery, and grace converge.

MTL Clown Festival: MONA MONAÉ: A Saucy Plate of Sass with an Extra Side of Ass! ​

Savage Creampuff

Mona Monaé has a hunger deep down inside and she wants satisfaction! Ricocheting between carnal desire, self discovery, loving and hating ourselves, Mona explores the imbalance of letting go and getting what we want in life. Seeking inner radiance amidst the hoarded remnants of messy one night stands and sweaty handshakes, Mona digs deep inside her crusty dank cellar for hidden riches to guide herself and the audience on an evolutionary journey towards transformation that would make Darwin’s head spin like he was starring in The Exorcist. Calling on self-help gurus and audience wisdom Mona explores how to shed light where the sun doesn’t shine - where the ancestral karma feeds on misery and guilt - by shaking her balloon butt at sexuality and spirituality , provoking our ideals and lighting up the world with her ferocious joy and defiant rejection of social expectations. A maniacal dance on a tightrope balanced between perversion and ecstasy, this wild ride will make you howl with pleasure!
