Cirque du Soleil Early History
Cirque du Soleil Theater Tickets are available from greatseats.com. The modern day, Cirque du Soleil was not created overnight. But through small progression, the renovated circus was born. Gilles Ste-Croix founded a troupe of performers in the early 1980s. The troupe took the streets of Baie-Saint-Paul by storm. The village is a small one on the shores of the St. Lawrence River near Quebec City. The Stilt Walkers of Baie-Saint-Paul juggled, danced and breathed fire. They did this and more all to the locals and visitors delight.
Cirque du Soleil Early History Continued
One of the Stilt Walkers, Guy Laliberte, saw that Quebec was about to celebrate the 450th anniversary. Guy had the idea that this celebration would be a perfect opportunity to take the troupe on an official province-wide tour in 1984. The performance was a hit. Circus arts (without animals) and street performers in wild costumes were a hit with the audience. The use of dazzling lights and original music made Cirque du Soleil special. Guy named his troupe Cirque du Soleil because it means, “The sun symbolizes youth, energy, and strength”.
