Who is Lysanne Richard
At the age of 10 Lysanne Richard saw, for the first time, a daring high dive during a performance at Village Vacances Valcartier, near Quebec City. "I immediately knew that I wanted to do that" she recalls. Born in Chicoutimi Québec Canada, she took up diving at the age of nine. She competed in provincial and national events. After high school, she studied at École nationale de cirque de Montreal. She then made career in this universe, working especially for Cirque du Soleil (Zarkana) and Les 7 doigts de la main (Amuse). Three children were born over time, and often accompanied her on tour, with their dad.
High diving? Lysanne Richard took her first taste of it in summer 2000, while she gave performances in northern France. (Translation of an article written by Marie Allard, La Presse)Learn more
