International Market of Contemporary Circus

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.

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

A hybrid (in-person + online) edition of the MICC Annual Market is anticipated for July 12-15, 2021.

Circus Coffee Hours

A hybrid concept somewhere between speed dating, networking, and pitching, the MICC’s Circus Coffee Hours welcome presenters, agents, and producers into an informal encounter with artists and companies whose new works are currently either in development or ready-to-tour. Sessions include brief presentations followed by in-depth small group conversations. Projects may be submitted on a rolling basis via our platform (see link below).
