Cirque du Soleil

Цирк берет свое начало в квебекском городке Бе-Сент-Пол (Канада). Именно там в начале восьмидесятых годов прошлого века появилась группа, состоявшая из необычных персонажей, которые бродили по улицам на ходулях, показывали жонглерские трюки, танцевали, глотали огонь и играли на музыкальных инструментах. Эта группа уличных актеров, основанная Жилем Сте-Круа, называлась Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul (Артисты на ходулях из Бе-Сент-Пол). Уже тогда жители города были потрясены и даже заинтригована молодыми актерами, среди которых был и Ги Лалиберте, который позднее основал Cirque du Soleil, став его директором.

In 2012, Michel collaborated with pop star Madonna, providing artistic direction for her performance at the Super Bowl XLVI halftime show; he later went on to direct her MDNA tour. In 2013, he directed the musical Robin des Bois – Ne renoncez jamais, to be presented in France, Belgium and Switzerland.
