Clown scouting and casting at the Cirque du Soleil : designing boundary practices for talent development and knowledge creation

Gateau, Thierry ; Simon, Laurent
International Journal of Innovation Management vol.20 n°4, 31 p., 2016


A significant part of management in creative organisations is the discovery, development, and engagement of the creative talents. These activities require practices at the intersection of talent management, knowledge management and HR management. In this paper, we observed a bootcamp held at Cirque du Soleil in order to experiment with new casting and training practices for a scarce and specific occupational creative community: clowns. Our study shows that this bootcamp provides context at the borders of distinct practices: recruitment, training, and exploration. This intermediary zone allows the emergence of a boundary practice: the co-construction of what actors of the organisation and members of the communities do, make and learn to connect, create and understand new meaning of their shared reality in performance and exploration. This concept contributes to an improved understanding of the management of scarce talents in knowledge-and-creativity intensive fields, as hi-tech industries, software development, engineering, or creative industries.

Setting the Stage for Collaborative Creative Leadership at Cirque du Soleil

Simon, Laurent
Technology Innovation Management Review , Juillet 2015

Debates about the nature of leadership for creativity have been ongoing since the 1950s. But, despite the central role leadership plays in the management of creative processes, few contributions highlight the actual practice of leadership for collaborative creative ventures. This interview with the Director of Acrobatics and Coaching at Cirque du Soleil, Boris Verkhovsky, addresses the reflexive experience of a creative leader faced with the challenges of integrating multiple expertises around complex, technological, human, and poly-sensorial creative performances. In this context, leadership for collaborative creativity appears as a constant and dynamic balancing act between people, ideas, deliverables, and the position and personality of the leader.

Places, spaces and the dynamics of creativity

Cohendet, Patrick ; Grandadam, David ; Simon, Laurent
Montréal, [2009?]

Creativity is a major driving force in modern economies, on a global scale, but also on a local scale. In other words, cities may benefit from a highly creative environment in order to foster their development. The aim of this contribution is to depict and examine the dynamics of situated creativity by presenting an anatomy of the creative city based on three different layers, namely the underground, the middleground and the upperground. In order to illustrate this point of view, the culture cluster in the creative city of Montreal is analyzed. [editor summary]
