A veteran performer with Cirque du Soleil died on the weekend in Tampa Bay, Florida, just hours after writing “‘it’s time to go for it’ on Instagram about the new act “Volta”.
Yann Arnaud, who was a native of France, died after falling during an aerial routine.
Arnaud had performed in Cirque shows for 15 years and was considered one of the company’s most experienced entertainers. He posted a photo on Instagram just before the show on Saturday with the caption, “After so much work and training and staging, our straps duo act is finally in the show tonight. It’ s time to go for it.”
