Welcome to the MICC!

A project of TOHU (Montréal, Québec, Canada), the International Market for Contemporary Circus (MICC, for its French acronym) convenes a global community of professionals dedicated to the creation, presentation, and touring of contemporary circus in North America and around the world, both online year-round and in-person each July in Montréal.

By accelerating the impact of our Annual Market through regular contact, the MICC Network is now playing a key role in moving contemporary circus into the spotlight.


Become a MICC member today to participate in our year-round online programs and activities.
