Run away and join the most amazing circus on earth
Have you ever dreamed of running off and joining the circus?
If so why not set your sights high, go for one of the most amazing circus events available - Cirque du Soleil.

The Cirque du Soleil team doing what they do best


Whether it is a full-time job, a leisure time activity or something to do in between work, it is sure to be an amazing experience.

We all know of the amazing Cirque du Soleil shows, however you may not know they also create exclusive creative events for spectacular business meetings and parties to remember forever.

If you have deep pockets you can organise a private party or if you are working for a company - perhaps a grand gala, or perhaps you are interested in being part of the show for these type of events.

Many people have amazing talents, different abilities that still inspire us to think outside of the box.

If you happen to be one of these people they may be looking for original artists that we have not been seen before and fabulous new faces.

If you simply want something to fill in your leisure time, perhaps a single event or maybe just on an occasional basis then the events team and short-term contracts could be just the ticket for you.

All the fun of Ovo - coming soon

TRAINING:
Before you can begin working as a Cirque du Soleil artist you must go through a period of training which will vary in time depending on your level of experience.

They offer a program that will suit the needs of the different applicants in a wide range of areas covered by a wide team of specialists in each field.

The talented team of recruitment officers includes people such as acrobatic coaches, artistic coaches, health professionals, performance experts, nutritionists, interpreters and more, each bringing their unique background and skill to an amazing experience.

In order to assist artists to move from the basic show or performance they may have been involved with to the actual stage, they have an entire training program which can be seen by clicking here.

Depending on your chosen speciality and the role that you are being given, your training can go from as little as a few days to several months.
