Alegría, which has wowed millions under the grand chapiteau across North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Central and South America, begins life anew in arenas. Like Saltimbanco before it, Alegría embarks on a new two-year North American tour.

To celebrate Cirque du Soleil's 25th anniversary, a new touring show featuring insects, Brazilian music and vibes premieres in Montreal. Directed by Debra Colker, OVO is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. The publication of a book on Cirque costumes and the launch of a double CD containing a music compilation, are among other commemorative activities of this anniversary.

Guy Laliberté also becomes the first Canadian private space explorer. Under the theme Moving Stars and Earth for Water, this Poetic Social Mission in space aimed at touching people through an artistic approach: a special 120 minute webcast program featuring various artistic performances unfolding in 14 cities on five continents, including the International Space Station is had, all to raise awareness on water issues facing humankind on planet earth.

The “mission” brings about the formation of ONE DROP.

Cirque also branches out into the realm of fitness with the launch of an innovative gym workout – JUKARI Fit to Fly. JUKARI makes fitness fun again by introducing a new way to move in a gym workout and is accessible to all women, regardless of fitness levels. The hour-long workout has been created on a specially-designed piece of equipment called the FlySet. The result is a workout that gives the sensation of flying while strengthening and lengthening the body through cardio, strength, balance and core training.
