Cirque du Soleil

Alles begann in Kanada, genauer gesagt in Baie-Saint-Paul, einer Kleinstadt in der Nähe von Quebec. Anfang der Achtziger begann dort eine bunte Truppe von Stelzenläufern, Jongleuren, Tänzern, Feuerschluckern und Musikern, die Straßen unsicher zu machen. Die Kleinkunstgruppe um Gilles Ste-Croix nannte sich „Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul“ (Die Stelzenläufer von Baie-Saint-Paul). Schon damals waren die Einwohner beeindruckt und begeistert von den jungen Künstlern, darunter Guy Laliberté, der spätere Gründer und Leiter des Cirque du Soleil.
