Cirque du Soleil is a Canadian entertainment company, which describes itself as a "dramatic montage of circus arts and street entertainment "and whose headquarters are located in Quebec, Canada, in the Saint-Michel area. It was created by the ex street artists Guy Laliberté and Daniel Gauthier in Baie-Saint-Paul, in 1984. The origin of its name goes back to a day when Laliberté admired a sunset during a trip to Hawaii; shortly after he chose to use the term in French soleil (sun in Spanish) whose meaning as a symbol is youth, dynamism and energy.
