Cirque de Soleil founder Guy Laliberte is taking travel to a whole new level.
The animal-free circus creator is heading to the moon – making him Canada’s first “space tourist.” And I really hope the peanuts on board are good, because the 12-day out-of-this-world trip is costing Guy a cool $35 million.
As part of a campaign for his charity One Drop foundation, Laliberte is calling the flight a “Poetic Social Mission, Moving Stars and Earth for Water”, and will present a series of performances in 14 cities in support of water conservation.
Heavy hitters Al Gore, David Suzuki, Shakira and U2 are stated to be involved with the production that will include music, dance, visual arts and photography – all with an environmental theme.
Still not really sure what to make of it? Neither are we. But we’re pretty sure it’s going to be awesome. To learn more about Guy’s organization, visit OneDrop.org.
