Behind the show
Cirque is mostly self-sufficient, and makes its own props, clothes and even shoes. “Since the show was founded with the help of the Quebec government, Laliberte is repaying in a certain way by employing a lot of people in the province”, says Mackenzie.
While the company has promoters for its show in certain places, it still carries its big top (the tent) and everything within it wherever it goes. However, Mackenzie says that they are planning to try and make the shows more economically viable; for instance, after Dubai, Alegria will be performed in arenas in the US, so that it can stay for shorter periods like a week and travel to smaller cities as well.
