The only major Kurios disappointment for many in the Cirque fan community was that the show would “never” be recorded for DVD release. Out of nowhere on the 14th, however, an Instagram post from Christa Mercey (Bella Donna in Kurios), surprised many fans: KURIOS was being filmed in Miami!
It's official! The next show in the Hommage Series by 45 DEGREES is one in tribute to Luc Plamondon, a French Canadian lyricist who has written for many artists, notably the Québécois singers Bruno Pelletier, Diane Dufresne, Robert Charlebois, Céline Dion, Ginette Reno, Fabienne Thibeault, Martine St. Clair, and Garou.
Something on everyone's mind these days: what's next? Alma Derricks, VP of sales and marketing for the Resident Shows Division at Cirque du Soleil, knows that not every trend is suited to reach customers in every industry.
Montreal company Moment Factory, for instance, has seen such a surge in demand for its innovative multi-media creations in recent years that it can’t keep up with demand. “We get about 20 invitations a week now. We can’t do them all. We’re actually handling only about 10 per cent,” said the company’s executive producer, Eric Fournier.
Soda’s Charly Alberti reveals new details about creating Sép7imo Dia’s soundtrack with Zeta Bosio and preparations for the show tour in this exclusive chat with Billboard Magazine's Judy Cantor-Navas.
Avenged Sevenfold (sometimes abbreviated as A7X) is an American heavy metal band from Huntington Beach, California, formed in 1999. And they've hired the company behind Cirque du Soleil to manage the production on their upcoming live shows in the UK. The band launch their next wave of tour dates next month.
Cirque du Soleil aerialist Lisa Skinner is in good spirits despite a horror fall in front of thousands of people. Ms Skinner is recovering from a fractured C1 vertebrae and a fractured radial bone on her right arm sustained during the November 27 performance of Kooza.

Cirque is coming to the Zibi site in Gatineau next August, and if the shows are a hit it could be the start of a six-year series of Cirque shows. The stop, which was the subject of discussion for several months, was confirmed Wednesday in an announcement involving politicians, business people, and representatives of the regional tourism scene.
It was the spring of 2014 when Pierre Dufour, then general director of the Opéra de Montréal, and Michel Beaulac, the opera company’s artistic director, approached Quebec composer Julien Bilodeau with the idea of turning Pink Floyd’s classic album The Wall into an opera.
Last month Cirque du Soleil introduced us to their newest big top show for 2017 - VOTLA - which was announced to the world via social media. And while they also told us the show came under the direction of Bastien Alexandre (Director) and Jean Guibert (Director of Creaiton), little else about the show's creative team was released... until now.
Broadway is making way for Harry Potter, literally. The cavernous Lyric Theater will be dramatically reconfigured — shedding one-fifth of its seats — to create a home for the most-coveted theatrical tenant of the moment: the two-part play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” which is expected to open there in spring 2018.
It’s not the kind of phone call anyone wants to have to make. In his car on the way home from the premiere of Ovo at the Bell Centre Tuesday night, Cirque chief executive officer Daniel Lamarre learned that Olivier Rochette, a technician working Luzia in San Francisco, had been killed that night. He was struck by a telescopic lift as it was being taken off stage before the show.
IATSE has canceled today’s planned protest against the non-union performance of Cirque du Soleil’s OVO show in Montreal, following Tuesday’s freak accident that took the life of Olivier Rochette, the son of Cirque founder Gilles Ste-Croix.
