Interviews: In Their Own Words...

Since the inception of Le Grand Chapiteau's companion, the "Fascination! Newsletter", we've had the honor of meeting and talking with many current and former Cirque du Soleil artists. In Their Own Words highlights those meetings and the many questions we've posed to Cirque du Soleil performers, musicians, technicians and behind-the-scenes personnel over the years... and their answers. May you find their words interesting, informative and inspirational!
