August 17, 2016

Artists in Training is an original documentary webseries introducing new artists visiting the Montreal Head Office. Get an insider's look at all the challenges and thrills they face as they take a new turn.

In this episode, meet the artist Barry Lowin as he trains to become Trickster in the touring show Kooza. In the second episode, Barry is slowly getting into his character.

In order to successfully prepare future artists on our shows, there is a Specific Training program held at Cirque du Soleil's International Headquarters in Montreal, Canada which is conducted by a team of interdisciplinary specialists such as health professionals, performance experts, nutritionists and interpreters. This training program focuses on acrobatic, artistic, personal and professional elements so that artists can master each aspect of performance prior to joining the show.
