Based in Montreal, Canada, Cirque du Soleil is reputed to be the one show you simply can’t miss. During the thirty years after it’s founded, only four people from Taiwan have been invited to be their official performers.
Strongly impressed by the performance of Cirque du Soleil, at the age of 17, Hsing-Ho Chen told himself, “I want to join Cirque du Soleil!” Once remote as a fantasy, Hsing-Ho Chen’s goal was fulfilled ten years later as Cirque du Soleil surprisingly invited him to join them. During the days at Cirque du Soleil, he had to stand on the three-story tall stage and shared his passion with the audience.
With such incredible passion, Hsing-Ho Chen not only appeared in 437 performances with Cirque du Soleil, but also brought juggling to National Theater for the first time in Taiwan. Moreover, his life’s work and journey were made into a TV show by PTV and the Thanksgiving Foundation. Through lectures and workshops Hsing-Ho Chen will demonstrate personally “the passion of a fool.”
