Case Study: Cirque Du Soleil


Cirque du Soleil is a Quebec based company recognized all over the world for high-quality, artistic entertainment. Founded in 1984, the company now employs over 5,000 people including 1,300 artists. Each show is a syntheses of circus styles from around the world, with its own central theme and storyline. They perform in 271 cities on every continent in the world except Antarctica. More than 100 million spectators have seen a Cirque du Soleil show since its inception including 15 million people last year alone.


Due to the amount of water many of these shows require and the complexity of the massive equipment the shows require and being an environmentally-friendly company, ScaleBlaster was tested in many applications.


ScaleBlaster was installed on every permanent structure owned by Cirque du Soleil around the world. The units vary in size, from small commercial to large industrial models.


The units were installed over a period of time from 2003-2005.


ScaleBlaster has delivered scale-free results on the multiple locations worldwide.
