Cirque du Soleil


Founded in Montréal in 1984 by street performer Guy Labiberte, Cirque du Soleil has been seen by more than 30 million spectators around the world. Cirque du Soleil, a theatrical blend of circus arts, played out against fairyland sets, washed with magical effects, accompanied by spellbinding soundtracks, is currently presenting seven shows on three continents.

Cirque du Soleil gratefully acknowledges IBM, American Electric Power and Bravo Network as corporate sponsors of the Cirque du Soleil 2OO3 North American Tours.

The media partners for Vancouver are: the Vancouver Sun, Z95.3, 650 CISL and Global Television.

The 21/2 hour spectacle showcases breathtaking acrobatics including the dramatically sensuous Synchro Trapeze and the hi-speed hi-energy Aerial High Bars where daring aerialists fly to catchers swinging more than 40 feet in the air. Imagine the poetry of the Mongolian art of contortion and an artist manipulating flaming knives around his body in a rhythmic and dangerous Fire Knife Dance.

The vibrancy of youth is alive in Fast Track, a brilliant display of synchronized choreography and tumbling achieved through a trampoline system that magically appears from within the set. In Russian Bars, artists fly through the air with spectacular somersaults and mid-air turns, landing on bars perched on the sturdy shoulders of catchers.
