In 1984, Guy Laliberté and Daniel Gauthier founded Le Cirque du Soleil in Baie Saint-Paul, first as a festival to introduce people to different disciplines such as fairground arts, street arts, circus arts and theater acting. Presented from 1982 to 19894, La Fête Loraine lays the groundwork for what would become a revolution in the circus world, by then limited to freak shows, animals tricks and clowns.
It was in 1987 in Los Angeles during the performance of Cirque Réinventé that the whole world discovered this new kind of entertainment. Renewal then starts. This is followed by the company’s first fixed show, Mystery, in Las Vegas in 1993 which allows creators to work for the first time on a site designed specifically for them with fixed and permanent infrastructures. The show is still going at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
In Quebec, it is the traveling show Saltimbanco that contributes to the birth of the new genre circus in his homeland. It is with his next creation, Alegria, that the company becomes the international phenomenon that we know today and that will amaze several hundreds of millions of spectators around the world.
Since then, nearly 50 productions have come from the minds of internationally renowned stage directors such as Fanco Dragone, Philippe Découflé and Quebec’s own Robert Lepage. All these shows, presented in more than 100 countries, have contributed for more than 30 years to the Quebec’s unique culture to shine all around the globe.
For his most recent creation on-ice, Axel, the company’s creation team draws us into the universe of a young boy and its friends whom are searching for their calling through their dreams and ambition in the musical and graphic art worlds.
