Travel Benefits

Stepping onto the stage of a Cirque du Soleil production can be a wonderful way to see the world while doing what you love.

We have shows that travel the world and shows that the world travels to see. At any one time, we may be touring on as many as five different continents while maintaining a permanent presence in North America.

Big Top and arena touring shows

We currently have ten shows touring the world. Here are some of the travel benefits you can expect as an artist on tour:

  • Travel at the beginning and end of your employment contract
  • Travel between the cities on the tour
  • A return trip home once every 12 months
  • Local transportation between the site and your accommodations, if the distance is greater than 1.5 kilometres
  • Lodging is provided in the form of a private room at a hotel
  • Artist visa and work permit initiated and paid for by Cirque du Soleil


Resident shows

We currently have nine resident shows in the United States. Here are some of the travel benefits you can expect as an artist on a resident show:

  • Local transportation allowance during the first two weeks of integration if you don’t own a car
  • Lodging provided until two weeks after artist’s integration into the show
  • During the creation period of a new show: lodging provided throughout the process in Montreal and for four weeks when the production moves to its resident city
  • Artist visa and work permit initiated and paid for by Cirque du Soleil
