Issue #195: APR 2020

Welcome to the latest edition of Fascination, the Unofficial Cirque du Soleil Newsletter. It’s a lean one this month thanks to Covid-19, but let’s get into it…

CIRQUE’S COVID-19 RESPONSE

Safety is of utmost importance and our top priority. As part of our commitment to the health and well-being of our artists, employees and audiences, we are carefully monitoring the situation and are implementing safety measures on a regular basis to prevent transmission of the disease.

As we operate all over the world, our procedures are updated daily and are broken down into as many specific and dedicated measures for each region of the world and for each project. We are also in regular contact with local authorities and our business partners and are working in concert with them to provide a work and performance environment that meets the highest standards of health and safety in an always evolving situation.

Taking into consideration the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommendation for social distancing as well as the escalation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, following cancellations and/or postponements of numerous Cirque du Soleil shows in recent days, Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group announced the immediate temporary suspension of all Cirque du Soleil shows world-wide.

From the very beginning of the outbreak of the new coronavirus, the Group took rigorous measures to protect its work teams and the public. Our priority has always been and remains the health and safety of our artists, our partners and various employees, but also of our public. We are collaborating daily with local authorities and our business partners and are working in concert with them to provide a work and performance environment that meets the highest standards of health and safety in an always evolving situation.

Our shows give our fans a chance to escape into fantasy and imaginary worlds through our stories and unique characters,” said Sheila Morin, Chief Marketing & Experience Officer. “Now, more than ever, we need to continue to provide wonderment, even from afar, straight into your homes.”
