the Cirque du Soleil

Rabarama and Cirque du Soleil:

During the night of March, 22 at the O theatre in Bellagio Palace, Las Vegas, the famous Cirque du Soleil staged the most important show of its history, to benefit One Drop foundation.
One important part of the show was inspired directly by Rabarama's art, with two performers who appeared as Rabarama's living sculptures, dancing over the water and with a giant 3D projection of the Rabarama's artwork Chi-Chi (this artwork was auctioned during the event):

A marvelous idea began to take shape in the early 1980’s in Baie-Saint-Paul, a charming village nestled on the north shore of the St-Lawrence River, east of Quebec City. Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul (‘The Stiltwalkers of Baie-Saint-Paul’), a theatre troupe founded by Gilles Ste-Croix, walked on stilts, juggled, danced, breathed fire and played music. These young entertainers, among whom was Cirque du Soleil-founder Guy Laliberté, constantly impressed and intrigued Baie-Saint-Paul’s residents.

Cirque su Soleil

In 1984, during Quebec’s 450th anniversary celebrations of Jacques Cartier’s discovery of Canada, the province sought an event which would bring the festivities to all Quebecers. Guy Laliberté convinced organisers the answer was a provincial tour of Cirque du Soleil performers and it hasn’t stopped since!

From then on, Cirque du Soleil tale is that of a remarkable bond between artists and spectators from around the world. And it is the latter who feed the sacred fire of Cirque du Soleil.


Cirque du Soleil was built on values and deep convictions which rest on a foundation of audacity, creativity, imagination and our people: the backbone of our success.

Cirque du Soleil places creativity at the core of all its endeavors so as to ensure limitless possibilities. This is why the creative challenge is of the utmost importance with each new business opportunity, whether it is a show or any other creative activity.

Cirque du Soleil dream is also an integral part of its philosophy: To take the adventure further, step beyond its dreams and, above all, believe that our people are the engine of our enterprise.Cirque du Soleil offers its artists and creators the necessary freedom to imagine their most incredible dreams and bring them to life.

The International Head Office, located in Montreal, wishes to be an international laboratory of creativity, where our world’s best creative minds, craftsmen, experts on various domains and performers can collaborate on creative projects. By assuming the roles of catalyst and unifier, Cirque du Soleil is able to reinvent itself with each new chapter of its history.


Ever since Cirque du Soleil had the resources to pursue its dreams and perform around the world, it chose to become involved in communities, particularly troubled youths. Concerned with the future, Cirque du Soleil turned its attention and resources to global issues, such as the fight against poverty. Working together with valued partners, Cirque du Soleil is making a difference in nearly 80 communities, in over 20 countries on five continents.

Cirque du Soleil

Cirque du Soleil wants above all to take its place in society as a good citizen, with all the duties and responsibilities that go with citizenship. Beyond philanthropic gestures, good citizenship consists of an attitude of social responsibility at the very heart of all our business strategies and management.

Cirque du Soleil's citizenship principles are founded on the conviction that the arts, business and social initiatives can, together, contribute to making a better world.

Charity: ONE DROP

"We all drink from the same well. Water is our common bond, uniting us as human beings and as citizens of this planet. And yet, while this precious resource flows abundantly in some parts of the world, in others, water or lack thereof is a source of poverty and sickness. Every year, more than 3 million children die from water-related causes. Isn't that a sufficient reason to act?" Guy Laliberté, founder of Cirque du Soleil.

One Drop

ONE DROP was established by Guy Laliberté to answer this call to action. It fights poverty by providing access to water and sanitation in developing countries. Around the world, ONE DROP raises everyone’s awareness of water-related issues by initiating activities which draw inspiration from the distinctive popular education using social arts approach it has developed.
