Currently its tent is in Vancouver, March 22nd through May 1st, and then headed to Calgary May 25th through June 5th. They then head east to Québec July 19th through August 14th, and Laval August 17th through October 2nd.The show features forty-nine horses, representing ten different breeds, as well as thirty-three artists, acrobats, dancers and riders from Canada, France, the United States, Morocco, Kyrgyzstan, Moldavia and Russia. Artistic Director Normand Latourelle, who once helped build Cirque du Soleil, now heads a creative team that includes both human and equestrian choreographers: Benjamin Aillaud, Frédéric Pignon, Magali Delgado and Alain Gauthier.
