Cirque Global : Quebec's expanding circus boundaries

Leroux, Louis Patrick ; Batson, Charles R.
Montréal : McGill-Queen's University Press, 2016

Essays examine the innovative and influential circus scene as a creative, entrepreneurial, and cultural force that spans the globe.

With a billion-dollar industry centred in Montreal, the province of Quebec has established itself as a major hub for contemporary circus. Cirque du Soleil has a global presence, and troupes such as Cirque Éloize and 7 doigts de la main are state-of-the-art innovators. The National Circus School of Montreal - the only state-funded elite training facility in North America - is an influential leader in artistry and technique. Montreal-based Cirque du Soleil’s Cirque du Monde supports arts for social change on many continents and is renowned for its social-circus training and research.

Cirque Global is the first book-length study of this new variety of circus and its international impact. The contributors offer critical perspectives on this rapidly developing art form and its aesthetics, ethics, business practices, pedagogical implications, and discursive significations. Essays explore creative, entrepreneurial, and cultural forces that are shaping Quebec’s dynamic nouveau cirque. Lavishly illustrated with photographs from circus performances, the volume showcases Quebec circus’s hybrid forms, which have merged the ethos and aesthetics of European circuses with American commercial and industrial creativity.

Cirque Global is the definitive study of the phenomenon of Quebec circus and is an important model for future research on contemporary circus. [editor summary]

The Routledge circus studies reader

Tait, Peta ; Lavers, Katie
New York : Routledge , 2016

The Routledge Circus Studies Reader offers an absorbing critical introduction to this diverse and emerging field. It brings together the work of over 30 scholars in this discipline, including Janet Davis, Helen Stoddart and Peta Tait, to highlight and address the field’s key historical, critical and theoretical issues. It is organised into three accessible sections, Perspectives, Precedents and Presents, which approach historical aspects, current issues, and the future of circus performance.

The chapters, grouped together into 13 theme-based sub-sections, provide a clear entry point into the field and emphasise the diversity of approaches available to students and scholars of circus studies. Classic accounts of performance, including pieces by Philippe Petit and Friedrich Nietzsche, are included alongside more recent scholarship in the field.

Edited by two scholars whose work is strongly connected to the dynamic world of performance, The Routledge Circus Studies Reader is an essential teaching and study resource for the emerging discipline of circus studies. It also provides a stimulating introduction to the field for lovers of circus. [editor summary]

Leroux, Louis Patrick ; Moss, Jane
Québec Studies, September 2014

In July 2013, the Montreal Working Group on Circus Research and the American advocacy group Circus Now held a discussion in the library of the National Circus School during the Montréal Complètement Cirque festival. Panelists were mostly American circus professionals, teachers, or recent students who gravitated to Montreal, the North American circus hub. Topics discussed include the culture shock experienced by Americans in Montreal, the expansion of their artistic vocabulary, what Québec and America bring to each other’s circus traditions, and circus training in Québec and the US. [editor summary]

En juillet 2013, le Groupe montréalais de travail en recherche des arts du cirque et le regroupement américain Circus Now ont rassemblé des Américains attirés par Montréal, pivot de la pratique du cirque contemporain. La table ronde composée de professionnels, d’enseignants, et de finissants en cirque s’est tenue à la bibliothèque de l’École nationale de cirque de Montréal dans le cadre du festival Montréal Complètement Cirque.
