Cirque du Soleil Kurios Washington DC Tickets
History of Cirque du Soleil
Created in the early 1980s, Cirque du Soleil was not your average circus. As a company of mere performers founded by Gilles Ste-Croix, they showcased their talents on the streets of Baie-Saint-Paul. With juggling, dancing, breathing fire and more, tourists and locals alike swooned at this new style of street performing. In 1984, the troupe decided to take their tour global.
Unlike anything the world had ever seen, these talented artists formed Cirque du Soleil. In addition, unlike any circus before them, Cirque proudly strayed away from using wild animals in their performances. Relying on pure talent, Cirque du Soleil skyrocketed to the top of must-see shows.
In 1987, everything changed. At the Los Angeles Festival, audiences were blown away by their set design, costumes and raw storytelling abilities. Stars were born as the Cirque officially took off.
Winning awards left and right, including the National Arts Centre Award and a Governor General’s Performing Arts Award, this magnificent circus continues to impress.
