Poetic Social Mission in Space

Today Cirque Du Soleil founder, Guy Laliberte from space...

from Cirque Du Soleil June 4, 2009

Watch the press conference simulcast, LIVE from Montreal, in Canada and Moscow, in Russia, on June 4, 2009 @ 09H40 EDT and learn more about this very special social/humanitarian mission performed in space.
The Poetic Social Mission will be undertaken on behalf of the ONE DROP Foundation. ONE DROP embodies the "Water for all, all for water" dream as it fights poverty by providing access to water and by raising awareness of water-related issues as well as of the need to get involved to advance this important cause.
The press conference will be available in rebroadcast that afternoon.
We hope you'll join us for the press conference simulcast, June 4, 2009!
