Who are these Cirque du Soleil performers who seem to defy gravity and put everything on the line for every performance? Are they different from you and me?

If you’ve been very lucky in life, then you have seen a Cirque du Soleil performance and like everyone who has had that remarkable pleasure, you probably could not believe your eyes. The performers seem more like “superhumans” than someone you could relate to.

In reality, they are gentle characters who have passions that inspire awe, and perspectives that we can feel a kinship with.

It brings a huge smile to watch a little of their extraordinary work, while they tell us about their ordinary emotions. Enjoy this behind the scenes look!

What a fabulous little window into a world most of us could only imagine!
