Cirque du Soleil Circus of the Sun, English pronunciation is a Canadian entertainment company, self-described as a dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment. Based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and located in the inner-city area of Saint-Michel, it was founded in Baie-Saint-Paul in 1984 by two former street performers, Guy Laliberte and Daniel Gauthier. Initially named Les Echassiers, they toured Quebec in 1980 as a performing troupe and encountered financial hardship that was relieved by a government grant in 1983 as part of the 450th anniversary celebrations of Jacques Cartiers discovery of Canada. Le Grand Tour du Cirque du Soleil was a success in 1984, and after securing a second year of funding, Laliberte hired Guy Caron from the National Circus School to re-create it as a proper circus. Its theatrical, character-driven approach and the absence of performing animals helped define Cirque du Soleil as the contemporary circus nouveau cirque that it remains today.
