Cirque du Soleil is not only a worldwide, spectacular cutting-edge circus, it’s a constant supporter of social and cultural affairs, largely committed to supporting charities.
Cirque du Soleil was founded in 1984 by two former Quebec street performers, Guy Lalibert and Daniel Gauthier. None of the shows feature acts involving animals, they instead focus on a story-like circus act using elements of busking, circus, opera, ballet, and music to give extraordinary performances of contortion, juggling, strength, clowning, and trapeze.
With worldwide repute, Cirque du Soleil are in a position to enrich peoples lives with their enchanting creativity, especially the lives of the disadvantaged. They express a desire
to help young people express their dreams and make them come true.
Cirque du Soleil impart social-awareness action plans including, socially-oriented art, fundraising, and community involvement and support.
These programs involve giving away preview and show tickets, organizing benefit shows, making donations to organizations that work with at-risk-youth, recognizing their own employees’ community volunteer work, and campaigning to raise awareness of the fair trade movement.
Cirque du Soleil recently debuted their show KOOZA, and are currently performing VAREKAI in Australia, which will move on to Europe later in the year. WINTUK, a winter tale! will premiere in Madison Square Gardens this coming November.
