Cirque du Soleil filed for bankruptcy protection in Canada on Monday after the coronavirus pandemic forced the acrobatic circus to cancel shows and lay off performers. The move is designed to help the Montreal-based entertainment company come up with a plan to resume operations as the public health crisis continues. The company suspended its productions around the world in March as the coronavirus pandemic hit North America. It had to lay off more than 4,000 people, about 95 percent of its workforce. "With zero revenue since the forced closure of all of our shows due to COVID-19, the management had to act decisively to protect the company's future," CEO Daniel Lamarre said. The company said as part of the bankruptcy filing it had entered into a purchase agreement with its existing shareholders. [Reuters, Daily Mail]
