What makes up Cirque du Soleil creative studios?
The Studio is a full-fledged creation, innovation and training laboratory. Since 1997, all shows have been created at Cirque du Soleil’s International Headquarters, which provides a great deal of flexibility to the creative teams working on various Cirque projects.
Performers come from a variety of backgrounds, including artistic gymnastics, tumbling, acrosport, swimming, diving, dance, singing, music and, of course, circus arts. Some fifty nationalities are represented among artists.
