Cirque unveils new touring venture

Montreal-based group's latest project still untitled

Cirque du Soleil’s latest show has everything except a name.

The Montreal-based group announced Wednesday the plans for a show that will raise its current output for the world market to 14 productions.

“Cirque 2007” is the working title for the latest touring venture, which will premiere May 3 in Montreal before going on to dates this summer in Quebec City and Toronto, then joining the international touring circuit. There are already seven shows on the road, plus five permanent shows in Las Vegas and one in Orlando.

Internationally known mime artist David Shiner, a veteran of the early days of Cirque, is returning to direct the work, which is described as “an energetic, compelling, funny and somewhat provocative show (which) tells of the encounter between characters living in two parallel worlds.”

A final title, as well as more touring details, are expected shortly.
