Cirque du Soleil 2020: Something New on the Horizon!

On Monday, October 7, 2019, Cirque du Soleil gave us a sneak peek at Cirque du Soleil 2020, an all new touring show set to premiere on April 23, 2020 under the big top at the Old Port of Montreal…

In Cirque du Soleil 2020, the audience will be touched by uplifting acrobatic choreography, startling physical theatre and moved by the vibrant musical score, all infused with the warmth of human interconnection. Through Director Es Devlin’s exceptional creative lens, high-level acrobatics are woven within a striking and disruptive visual universe.

This new big top experience invokes the power of the human performance and communal experience which remain at the heart of all Cirque du Soleil creations. It is a meeting of visual art and human performance, a hymn to the vibrant communal experience that only a live show can offer. Cirque du Soleil invites fans to meet under the big top in 2020 and share the experience of this new surprising and joyful live gathering.


Renowned visual artist Es Devlin lives and works in London. Her multidisciplinary practice spans solo sculptural exhibitions in London and Miami, avant-garde theatre in New York, experimental opera in Vienna, iconic stadium pop shows and Olympic Ceremonies in London and Rio. Devlin’s practice originated in small scale theatres in London, progressed through The Royal Shakespeare Company, Royal Opera House, and onto global opera houses, the Metropolitan Opera, New York and La Scala, Milan. She has conceived large-scale touring shows with Beyoncé, U2, Adele, The Weeknd and Kanye West as well as collaborations with the theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli and the actor Benedict Cumberbatch. Her practice was the subject of the Netflix documentary series Abstract: the Art of Design. Amongst her many current projects, Devlin is designing the UK Pavilion at World EXPO 2020.
