Ma Place au Soleil (My Place in the Sun)
La Presse, 2016

{Author} /// Gilles Ste-Croix

For more than thirty years, the Cirque du Soleil has been shining. Behind this extraordinary success is a man not ordinary and of whom little is known: Gilles Ste-Croix, one of the founders of Cirque du Soleil alongside Guy Laliberté. For the first time, this creator who has chosen the shadow gives us his life course in MY PLACE OF THE SUN. He tells us about his time in Abitibi, where his father was a farmer, his life in the communes of the 1970s, his stilt walk from Baie-Saint-Paul to Quebec City, the birth, triumphs and reverses of Cirque du Soleil, Creative director on shows such as SALTIMBANCO, ALEGRIA or LOVE, the creation of CHEVAL THEATER, his friendship with Paul McCartney, and the circus school for children he founded in Mexico. Today retired, Gilles Ste-Croix is one of the few to witness Cirque du Soleil's thirty years of history. And a thrilling life, marked by boldness and sharing, a life that inspires us to do everything possible to make our dreams come true.
