Cirque du SoleilTodo comenzó en Baie-Saint-Paul, un pueblo pequeño cerca de la ciudad de Quebec, en Canadá. A principios de 1980, un grupo de personajes coloridos deambulaba por las calles en zancos, haciendo malabares, bailando, tragando fuego y tocando música. Eran Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul (los caminadores sobre zancos de Baie-Saint-Paul), un grupo de artistas callejeros fundado por Gilles Ste-Croix. Los lugareños estaban impresionados e intrigados por los jóvenes artistas, entre los que se encontraba Guy Laliberté, quien más tarde fundaría y se convertiría en presidente del Cirque du Soleil.
