Challenges for 2011
2011 is already looking like a year of great challenges for Cirque du Soleil. Our shows will visit three new countries—the Philippines, South Africa and Turkey—and three new shows will open:
- Zarkana, directed by François Girard, will be performed at New York’s Radio City Music Hall;
- Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour, directed by Jamie King, will visit arenas across North America;
- IRIS, directed by Philippe Decoufflé, will take up residence at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles.
We will start to see the results of the new governance structure implemented by the company in the next few months; new sustainable development initiatives will be launched with the usual Cirque du Soleil creativity.
