Graceful acrobatics, daring performance art, and imaginative dance routines are the heart and soul of the worlds greatest circus: Cirque de Soleil. Founded in Quebec in the early eighties the show takes you around the world with their own takes on culture. Cirque currently is running 22 shows all over the globe with names like Algeria, Totem, and Saltimbanco; music by the Beatles and Michael Jackson; and celebrities like Chris Angel.
I bet when Canadian founder Guy Laliberté was busking his way through Europe he could not even imagine the size of the empire he would later create. If you were hoping to catch a show in Canada your in luck. Totem, Dralion, the Immortal (Michael Jackson), Ovo, and Quidam are all currently touring Canada.
