Every production by Cirque Plume employed an entirely new cast – unlike other established companies, which often have a permanent cast of performers.
They have played to audiences totalling more than two million people worldwide.
The last three shows – Plic Ploc in 2004, The Artist’s Studio in 2009 and Tempus Fugit in 2013 – were seen by more than 300,000 people. But the Kudlak brothers say this definitely will be their final production. The show started in France and will tour worldwide, ending its run in 2020 when the circus act folds. The brothers described the three- decade run of Cirque Plume as the “adventure of a huge vessel set to dock” after “having lived an extraordinary human and artistic adventure”.
