Best Circus Theater - 2013
Sweet Can brings that Montreal circus flavor without overdoing it. Its shows take Cirque du Soleil-sized skills, and fit them into small, intimate venues. The company is not as busy as some other local circus troupes — it takes its time developing new work — but its shows typically sell out. Sweet Can's first show Habitat, and its second show Yes Sweet Can, were both extended beyond their initial run, and its latest holiday cabaret, Mittens and Mistletoe, charmed the audiences and critics alike in the Dance Mission theater.
