About the Workshop

We are pleased to announce the first Midwest Cirque du Soleil Live Entertainment Workshop presented by the USITT Midwest Regional Section and hosted by Purdue University. Orginally developed at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts on the East Coast and Chapman University on the West Coast, this first Midwest version of this highly popular event provides nearby college students, faculty and staff an extraordinary opportunity to enage industry leading professionals from Cirque du Soleil. Our symposium exists to provide attendees with the opportunity to meet with, learn from, and directly engage these professionals through large-format presentations and a series of Master Classes targeted to a wide variety of disciplines in design and technology.
