CIRQUE DU SOLEIL AUDITIONS (article first published : 2007-03-11)

Cirque du Soleil is seeking new talent for its thirteen current productions and upcoming creations and will hold artistic auditions for singers, musicians, dancers and physical actors all around the world.

Each Cirque du Soleil show is built around its own original concept, with music performed by live bands. With the number of shows growing, it is easy to imagine how many new artists are needed to fill new roles, serve as permanent or temporary replacements, play back-up positions, etc.

The Cirque du Soleil Casting team is specifically seeking professional artists with strong technique, stage experience, improvisational skills and versatility:

Singers: World beat, soul, folk, rock, pop, jazz, gospel, R&B, classical, Indian folk/western pop. All ranges, including countertenors and young sopranos.

Musicians: Bandleaders, brass, wind instruments, violin, cello, double bass, electric bass, strings, percussion and drums, electronic instruments, early instruments, oud, kora, accordion, guitars, multi-instrumentalists.

Dancers: Contemporary, jazz, classical, world and ethnic, hip-hop/b-boy and b-girl, unique and diverse styles.

Physical Actors: Creative skills, solid acting training and strong theatrical experience (clowns, contemporary mimes, street performers and artists with unique acts, exceptional skills or unusual body types).

Since 1984, Cirque du Soleil has carved out a special niche for itself in the world of performing arts. Through a mix of acrobatics, circus arts, dance, theatre, music, singing and street performance, Cirque du Soleil has given life to a magical new universe.

Auditions based on video demo submission. Further details available on casting.cirquedusoleil.com
