Esencial by Vaivén Circo

Spanish circus company Vaivén Circo presents the Canadian premiere of its show “Esencial” as part of TOHU’s 2020 season in Montreal.

Due to increased concerns regarding COVID-19, this activity has been canceled.


  • On Saturday, March 21 at 2 pm & 7 pm.
  • On Sunday, March 22 at 2 pm.

Esencial is a show about transitions. Five characters who play and dream take us along their adventures through unexplored corners where the best decision will ultimately be to take the simplest path. This new show by Vaivén Circo presents a staging inspired by the children’s game L’arc-en-ciel by Waldorf, composed of pillars and arches that offer a spectacular scenography.

The public is witness to a changing architecture and capable of reinventing itself, in the same way as the human being who seeks to progress. A poetic scenography, ideal for recreating a magical atmosphere, working on balance and its subtleties which make harmony go into chaos in seconds.

After traveling across Europe and participating in the biggest festivals, the Spanish company presents its third creation for the first time in Canada.
