Fracas (free outdoor show) – Montreal Circus Festival

I checked out the free circus show Fracas last Friday. It was pretty good. This free outdoor show is still running until July 17 at Place Émilie-Gamelin. There are shows at 7pm and 10pm.

I noticed that some of the performers were Asian and have posted some tidbits of info about them below.

Dina Sok is an acrobatic who specializes in Chinese rings (specifically jumping & tumbling through them).

Apparently he along with Sopha Nem are from the same Cambodian village. There was also an Indiegogo campaign to fund a documentary about them. Not sure if it’s still active. Both graduated from the National Circus school in 2016.

Yoshi Endo is an aerial generalist who specializes in the Chinese pole (a swinging pole attached to the ceiling).

 

I also noticed other Asian sounding names like Vincent Kim and Mizuki Shinagawa in the credits for the Fracas show but couldn’t find any info on them.
