Cirque du Soleil is a Canadian entertainment company. The team describes itself as a “dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment”. The former street performers, Guy Laliberté and Gilles Ste-Croix, found “Circus of the Sun” in Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec in 1984. Cirque du Soleil expanded through the 1990s and 2000s. During that time they performed 19 shows in over 271 cities in different countries. Cirque’s team have received many prizes and distinctions, for example a Bambi Award in 1997, Drama Desk Awards in 1991 and 1998 and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The current show in Toronto is “Amaluna”. The audience will be enchanted by a mysterious island where goddesses and the cycles of the moon determine life.
