Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group has laid off almost all of its workforce except the support team, according to a Reuters report.

The Montreal-based circus company has had to cancel most of its shows worldwide. It said it would prepare to rehire when productions resume.

“This decision is our only option,” Chief Executive Officer Daniel Lamarre said in a statement.

Laid off employees will be given paid holiday, temporary insurance coverage and access to an employee support programme, he said.
