Backstage Cirque Du Soleil

June 30, 2015

By Tab Byrum

For 30 years, Cirque du Soleil has been bringing smiles and magic to people around the world. Taking elements of the circus from around the globe and combining them into what’s grown into more than 30 different shows. Along the way photographer Véronique Vial has been given unfettered access by Cirque founder Guy Laliberté, a constant backstage presence, Vial is busy capturing performers as they prepare to go on stage and in their off time, finding a moment to relax.

This book allows us to go backstage at Cirque du Soleil, meet the artists and see them perform the balancing act of personal and professional lives. Backstage Cirque Du Soleil is a beautiful tribute to this modern day circus and the performers, artists and tradespeople that make it happen. If you are at all into Cirque du Soleil check out Backstage, in the meantime join me and have a look at some of the gorgeous images captured by Véronique Vial and assembled by Assouline Publishing. Enjoy!!!
