Our touring shows participate in the community life of the places we visit. We organize many meetings with local partners, and we invite young people at risk to visit our sites to give them a taste of the day-to-day reality of Cirque du Soleil. These simple initiatives often have a marked effect for these young people.
As part of our benefit performance program, Cirque du Soleil donates show tickets to longtime partners that then resell them to benefit their causes. Funds collected in this way finance programs and services for young people at risk. In addition, Cirque du Soleil also offers dress rehearsal show tickets to organizations working with young people at risk so their clients can attend our shows.
