16x9 - Getting into Cirque Du Soleil [Audition Documentary] 5

Ever wondered what it takes to be a part of Cirque du Soleil? Getting to be a one of a kind performer is no small feat. For four months, 16x9 followed Cirque Du Soleil scouts as they scoured the world, searching for the best of the best.

THUMBS UP for our Cirque episode!

💬 Comments on the video

its kinda astonishing that there are people in the world that still think that folks working in the 'arts' aren't really working. Shit just look at how hard they work just to get IN. Imagine flying across the world to do a 2-day interview for the chance of just being on the DATAbase. You don't see that level of competition in many other industries.

The fact that the girls go through that unbearably painful process of casting and training for a show while also on their period makes me respect them 1000 times more if that was possible

Why can't we learn to respect the bodies and lives of such artists.  10 shows a week means a LOT of injury!

Remarkable. And here I thought all Cirque du Soleil circusfolk were either 15th generation genetically bred or imported from some alien planet.

The hardest part of this must be keeping your level of athleticism years after leaving your sport and before they call you from the database
