In the early 1980s, Guy Laliberte and Gilles Ste-Croix established a troupe of street performers in a small area within the Saint-Michel area. Their works would eventually operate under Cirque du Soleil, aka Circus of the Sun.
The Canadian troupe would eventually expand beyond their borders, becoming an internationally known performance group as well as one of the biggest contemporary producers of circuses.
