Cirque du Soleil

Tudo começou em Baie-Saint-Paul, uma pequena cidade próxima a Quebec City, no Canadá. Ali, no início dos anos 80, um grupo de personagens coloridos perambulava pelas ruas, caminhando sobre pernas-de-pau, fazendo malabarismos, dançando, engolindo fogo e tocando músicas. Eles eram os Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul (os Equilibristas de pernas-de-pau de Baie-Saint-Paul), um grupo teatral fundado por Gilles Ste-Croix. Os habitantes da cidade ficaram impressionados e fascinados com os jovens artistas, incluindo Guy Laliberté, que, mais tarde, fundaria o Cirque du Soleil e ali atuaria como CEO.
