Cirque du Soleil Music Talent Scouts at the SXSW festival.
The Cirque du Soleil Casting team, as part of the Planet Québec delegation, will be looking for new artists at the South By Southwest (SXSW) festival from March 8 to 17.

Don’t miss the Cirque du Soleil Casting Rendez vous which will take place on Friday March 15 at 12 noon at the Swan Dive, where you will be able to talk to our Talent Scouts Claude Vendette and Denis Cantin. Here you will be able to learn more about the original music of Cirque du Soleil, the challenges of performing live, and the casting process. It’s a great opportunity to find out about the work of the Casting team, and the creative and musical journey of Cirque du Soleil as well as the type of professional musicians we look for. Some short videos and musical excerpts will be played and, of course, Claude and Denis will be on hand to talk with singers and instrumentalists to answer any questions you may have.

Don’t miss this great opportunity!
Friday March 15 from 12 noon to 13:30 p.m. at the Swan Dive. (615 Red River Street, Austin, Texas 78701)

The first clip from CLOWN LAB! BAAZ: a unique, innovative and avant-garde tool.
Here is the very first clip from CLOWN LAB!

Talent Scout Yves Sheriff and the Casting team ran a workshop last September under the direction of Michel Courtemanche for six clowns from Europe, the United States and Quebec!

This series of workshops, with the participation of Cirque du Soleil coaches, clowning students from the National Circus School and the Cracclown organization, ended with an evening at the Lion d’Or cabaret as part of the Journées de la culture!

Keep up-to-date with the other clips in the series that will be available for three consecutive days on our Facebook page from Monday March 11.

The Casting team is pleased to announce that it is now using a new one-of-a-kind contact and candidate management system! This system, called “BAAZ” contains more than 75,000 entries from across the globe.

BAAZ enables the Casting team to process applications more efficiently, and it also helps them to manage auditions and talent scouting events.

This “cloud” platform adds real value as it also encourages interaction, communication and follow-ups with candidates and with business partners. We would like to take this opportunity to remind those of you who are interested in a career with us that, in order to make communication easier, it is important to keep your personal file up-to-date.
