Cirque du Soleil brings Big Top razzle-dazzle to corporate events

(By Cirque du Soleil}

At Cirque du Soleil, the adventure starts with an idea. Whether an organization is looking for an event to celebrate with its team, highlight the loyalty of a long-term client relationship or plan an unforgettable date – Cirque’s dedicated team can assist in creating a one-of-a-kind experience.

From its beginning, Cirque looked for ways to redefine circus arts, and sees the planning of events as a way to enhance the guest experience. “Our VIP space can be adapted for tailored events and accommodate small to larger groups, starting when you step on our beautiful site,” said Mike Newquist, president, touring shows division at Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group..

Cirque knows how to entertain a crowd, especially when it comes to its VIP experience. The redesigned VIP tent can welcome organizations, partners and employees inside an air-conditioned lounge to celebrate, treat and delight guests.

“There is no experience that replaces seeing and collaborating with your colleagues, partners, frieds or loved ones (and showing them) how much they mean to you than by hosting an in-person event for them,” said Newquist.

The VIP experience allows guests to taste locally sourced food prepared by the Cirque touring chef, strike a pose with our artists in a beautiful setting, access the best seating close to the action and inspire teams creatively in many ways.

“Our VIP guests leave with giant smiles after having such a great time with their guests,” Newquist said.

The VIP lounge also includes an exclusive gift, a full bar available upon arrival on site to the end of intermission, sweet treats, an exclusive entrance and VIP restrooms.


Cirque du Soleil ECHO, Cirque’s newest Big Top creation, will have its U.S. premiere in Tysons, Virginia, on Sept. 6. Packed with vibrant characters, inspiring music, astounding lights and projections, and never-before-seen acrobatics, ECHO takes audiences on a journey through a universe of color, wonder and infinite possibilities. Fresh off its run in Montreal, where it received rave reviews, ECHO is expected to dazzle audiences in the D.C. area.

Cirque du Soleil brings modern and surprising twists under the Big Top with ECHO, a story of connection, intention and the bond between humans and the animal kingdom. When Future (the protagonist) and her best friend the Dog stumble upon an enigmatic Cube, they set in motion a journey of life, discovery, hope and empathy, quickly learning how their actions have the power to shape this world.

As Author-Director Mukhtar Omar Sharif Mukhtar says, “I think it’s important when people come to ECHO to be blown away by the performances and acrobatics, and at the same time, I want them to leave feeling empowered.”

“It’s incredible to watch our performers accomplish such amazing acrobatic feats,” said Newquist. “The Big Top offers such an intimate setting that we immediately feel immersed into the world of ‘ECHO.’”


Watching a Cirque du Soleil performance creates excitement and anyone who has watched a performance will likely say it must be seen to be believed. Cirque will provide the resources to design the VIP experience organizations want their guests to have. Cirque’s dedicated staff will offer personalized hospitality. Additionally, Cirque can provide equipment and the technology to make a speech or corporate presentation.

For organizations planning a corporate event or a unique occasion, events such as ECHO will deliver a breathtaking experience.
