Cas en trois parties : 

En 1995, Jacques Marois est directeur de tournée au Cirque du Soleil. Il y a une possibilité de prolonger la tournée l'Alegria qui connaît beaucoup de succès dans toutes les villes américaines où le spectacle prend l'affiche. Après avoir consulté par écrit la distribution qui ne se montre pas favorable à une prolongation, la direction du Cirque du Soleil décide tout de même de prolonger le spectacle. L'équipe du spectacle menace de débrayer.

Three-part case

In 1995, Jacques Marois was the tour director for Cirque du Soleil’s Alegria show when an opportunity arose to extend the very successful North American tour. In a written survey, the cast and crew expressed their unwillingness to extend the tour, but the Cirque du Soleil management chose to go ahead with its plans nonetheless, which led to a threat to strike.
