NEWSPAPERS

LA PRESSE
Marie-Josée Lévesque, Founding President and Artistic Director of CIRQUE FANTASTIC, is interviewed for La Presse Affaires. Marie-Josée's unusual story is intriguing and compelling. A veteran acrobat, mother of four and accomplished businesswoman, she runs her small business with a highly compact crew and still manages to fly everywhere around the world to present dozens of her company's shows every year - quite an impressive feat indeed. She benefits greatly from Montreal's unique status in the world of the circus arts. Her company's database boasts some 500 circus artists and entertainment professionals of all kinds, whom she hires on a contractual basis depending on the needs of the shows she creates. Her greatest passion? To go where people discover the circus for the very first time. Her most exciting current ambition? To continue exploring the Latin-American continent, after a very well-received first incursion into Mexico.

FERIA NACIONAL DE SAN MARCOS (AGUASCALIENTES, MEXICO)
CIRQUE FANTASTIC was mentioned in the press recently along with the eight shows that our 24 artist company presented from April 17 to 25, 2010, as part of the Feria Nacional de San Marcos, the most important and prestigious feria in Mexico.
This national fair has been taking place every year since 1828, over the course of three weeks, in the Mexican state of Aguascalientes and the city of the same name. This year, Cirque Fantastic had the honour of opening the event in front of 2 000 distinguished guests, including representatives from the government and the city council as well as executives from important companies in the area. Then, for an entire week, some 35,000 spectators came by Teatro Del Pueblo to admire the performances of our dazzling acrobats. Finally, our company offered the closing show of the Feria's great parade, in glorious daylight.
The Mexican press wrote about the event and our presence with great enthusiasm.
