It all started with two street performers Guy Laliberte & Daniel Gauthier Cirque Du Soleil "Circus of the Sun ",initially called " Les Échassiers".
The beginning was in 1980 in Canada ,as a dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment
Yes its been more then quarter of a century ,but with each and every year this cirque will keep taking the breath away from thousands and thousands of audience around the world.
A magical production of live theatrical, acrobatics art ,music ....name it what you want ... name it Art .
I cannot define it in one word .
A trip around different scenarios of life and the wild .
Today i had to be in one of those shows "Saltimabanco " this show was one of the first couple shows created by the "Cirque du Soleil ".
It was created in 1992 with a specific theme "the cosmopolitan urbanism ".
This is to date the longest running show that has ever produced by the Circus .It run for 15 years .
My luck was to see the restaged show here in France in the Palais omnisports of Paris -Bercy with a capacity of 17 000 peoples ,the place was almost full .
The show was impressive ,amazing ,artistic ,breath taking ,funny and beautiful.
