As part of its Higher Education program in circus arts, the École de cirque de Québec will present the Final Exam Performance of its 2023 graduating class outside its walls and open to the general public. This important pedagogical event represents the final step of a three year learning and development process in their circus disciplines. It is not a staged show, but rather a series of individual, duo or trio acts created and performed by the students in collaboration with the faculty; a series which is designed to share the creative, interpretive and performance skills of each graduate of the school.

On this occasion and as a result of the excellent relationship maintained between the boards of directors of the emblematic theatre Le Diamant and the École de cirque de Québec, the interest of holding this major event for the next generation of Quebec circus artists in the prestigious 600-seat hall of Le Diamant was naturally agreed upon in a joint agreement between the two institutions.

For the first time, the school will welcome its audience for this event at Le Diamant. This audience will be made up of representatives of circus companies, guests from different local organizations, people from the Quebec circus community, and this time also the inhabitants of Quebec City who wish to discover the results of the work of the school's graduates in a performance worthy of professional circus standards.

We hope to see you on Saturday, April 1st at 7:30 pm. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this new generation of circus artists on the cusp of joining the professional circus milieu in Quebec and internationally.

“The École de cirque de Québec is proud that its graduates will be able to experience a stint in a place as magnificent and important as Le Diamant. What a springboard for the beginning of their careers! This event will also allow a greater number of Quebecers to discover a cohort of artists full of promise. Not to be missed!”
