Cirque du Soleil taught circus arts to Estonian children


On the second to last day of the year, the children staying at children’s shelters and substitute homes participated in the circus arts workshop arranged by Cirque du Soleil at Saku Suurhall.

It was followed by Cirque du Soleil's show for the whole family, enjoyed by all 130 children who arrived from Ida-Viru County, Pärnu, Tartu, Harju County and Tallinn. In Tallinn, Cirque du Soleil performed its most famous show “Saltimbanco”, which has already become a classic, skilfully combining high-level acrobatics with circus arts.

An eventful day started with workshops arranged by the team of Cirque du Soleil, where children could learn the falling technique, clowns' buffooning skills and face painting under the guidance of professionals, and try out breath-taking acts with the help of air acrobats. Among others, an artist who was incredibly talented at juggling supervised the children and the children also enjoyed the act by a clown duo, etc. An exclusive excursion took the children to the rooms behind the scenes, where final preparations for the upcoming performance were underway.

The opportunity to participate in the secrets of a spectacular stage show was an invaluable experience for our children. Today’s meeting with the professionals in their field definitely taught self-confidence to children and inspired them.

The circus arts workshop for the children staying at substitute homes and children’s shelters was arranged in collaboration between SEB Heategevusfond (SEB Charity Fund), the concert agency FBI, which is part of BDG, and the team of Cirque du Soleil.
