See a tightrope walker perform incredible feats at Pointe-à-Callière!

Attend an extraordinary performance to mark the opening of the It’s Circus Time! exhibition.

Do you like high-wire thrills and chills? On October 16 and 17, 2021, tightrope walker Laurence T-Vu will perform a death-defying spectacle at Pointe-à-Callière. Come see him make a 70-metre crossing—10 metres above the ground—from a tower set up near Maison Christian Faure to the Éperon, the Museum’s main building.

Lachine native Laurence T-Vu is the only canadian circus artist to practice this discipline! Watch him balance high in the air and hang by one foot or do the splits as part of a series of breathtaking tricks. Wows, oohs and hoorays are guaranteed!
Reservation required

You will need to present your vaccine passport to enter Place Royale and attend the performance.
