Cirque du Soleil

すべてはケベックシティ(カナダ)の近郊の小さな町、ベ・サン・ポールで始まりました。1980 年代の初め頃、ベ・サン・ポールでは色とりどりの衣装をまとったキャラクターの一団が街を練り歩き、竹馬、ジャグリング、ダンス、火吹き、音楽などの芸を披露していました。彼らこそ、ジル・サンクロワが組織したストリートパフォーマンスのグループ、Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul(ベ・サン・ポールの竹馬乗り)でした。すでに街の人々はこの若いパフォーマーのグループに心を動かされ、魅せられていました。パフォーマーの中に、後に Cirque du Soleil の設立者のひとりとなり、CEO となるギー・ラリベルテもいました。
