With these spaces, the Foutoukours company wants to be a facilitator for its counterparts from all over the world who are interested in applied research in the circus and performing arts. The PACA project allows us to extend and consolidate the company’s current mandate: to contribute adequately to its environment and to develop new organizational skills that will benefit the entire circus community.
PACA is open thanks to the support of precious partners: the 40 donors of our Nourrir L’inspiration campaign, Alexandre Leduc, Député d’Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Québec solidaire, Le Centre Culturel Desjardins.
Studio A: 630 square feet in the heart of Hochelaga
We are very proud to provide an adequate, safe and well-equipped space for rehearsals, creation, practice and training.
Located at 2030 Pie-IX Boulevard, PACA A is a 630 square foot training studio that is very versatile and allows the practice of many artistic disciplines. Thanks to its curtains, it is possible to make the studio a black box, perfect for projection on a white wall. It has a concrete floor covered with epoxy resin and a wifi access.

In order to avoid charges to the wrong people, please check upon arrival: the state of the floor (deep scratches for example), the state of the common equipment (sound system, mattress, kitchen equipment, etc.) and the state of the walls (stains, marks, holes). Remember to look behind the curtains!
