In the 1970s, street entertainers became popular in Quebec, particularly in Montreal, with its flourishing bohemian arts scene. In 1981, a group of talented clowns helped form the ©‰cole de cirque du Qu©♭bec. Little did they know they were sowing the seeds of an entertainment giant: Cirque du Soleil. Founded in 1984 as an enthusiastic amateur troupe, Cirque du Soleil went on to become the biggest circus in the world. How did Quebec, without a real circus tradition, produce this international success story? Listen to various players recount the fascinating story of the circus arts in Quebec and see how popular theater and the spirit of May 1968 paved the way for the circus as we know it today.
