No international circuses claim the audience size, the raw invention, or the revenue of the Cirque du Soleil. An enterprise that took shape on a grassroots level at the hands of two Quebecois street performers in the early '80s, it grew into an epic form thanks to the involvement of [[Performer~P266756~Franco Dragone~francodragone]] and others; by the beginning of the 21st century, the brand was nothing short of iconic. Throughout, it distinguished itself by doing away with the more clichéd staples of a traditional circus (such as animals, curtains, and a ring) and bringing together indigenous circus styles utilized in other portions of the world; it also presented itself in the form of uniquely "themed" shows, many of which ran concurrently in different regions or even in the same city. As directed by [[Performer~P270499~David Mallet~davidmallet]], the concert film Cirque du Soleil: Delirium constitutes the first real cinematization of a Cirque du Soleil show and certainly the first to score a mainstream theatrical run in the United States. The theme at hand pertains to humankind's need for balance and harmony in an increasingly chaotic and desynchronized world; in it, [[Performer~P270499~Mallet~davidmallet]] choreographs innumerable singers, dancers, and other performers to a raw tribal beat and surrealistic visuals. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
