The addition of water to the mix is an enhancement that brings all kinds of performance arts together, from dance and circus skills to water athletics. Uniquely for Cirque du Soleil, all of the performers in this show are scuba certified.
Reinventing the Circus
Cirque du Soleil got its start in Quebec in the early 1980s. Initially, the company was a group of circus performers working in resort towns near the St. Lawrence River. They were best known for their stilt walkers. By 1984, the group was ready for a tour of the province. Their unique take on what a circus could be struck audiences. They were shockingly modern and youthful compared to the older notion of what a circus should be. It was at this time that the company took the name "Cirque du Soleil," in part to signal this bright and youthful feel. By 1993, Cirque du Soleil had its first permanent show in Las Vegas. The theater was custom-built to accommodate Cirque's innovative show. Today, there are over 20 Cirque due Soleil shows, some permanent and some touring. This unlikely group has redefined circus arts for the public.
