Located at the center of the Cité des arts du cirque, TOHU is a place for dissemination, creation, experimentation and convergence of culture, environment and community involvement. On June 19, 2019, TOHU announced the arrival of Ruth Juliet Wikler for the role of Deputy Director of Programming, Circus Arts. She is the guest on our show today.
As the creator of a podcast that has dedicated so many of our episodes to circus performers from around the world, we immediately reached out to Ruth for an in-person interview in Montreal, Quebec during their annual circus festival.
The annual festival, “Montreal Completement Cirque” which means “Montreal Completely Circus” is created and hosted by TOHU. My associate producer Adam Leffert and I went to experience the festival firsthand and for the first time in 2019 between July 10 - July 14th. The festival runs for ten days, where different circus companies from the world gather in Montreal to connect with an intimate local audience, and people who travel from afar.
The 2020 Montreal Circus Festival is scheduled for July 2-12, 2020.
