    My heart aches for Sarah, her family and loved ones for such a tragic loss.
    Wishing you God’s Blessings.
    Rest easy Sarah.

  2. Ron Wagner says:

    Although I did not know Sarah personally, I have had the experience of my wife of 24 years died last month of cancer. There has been much grief for me to bear while I go on with my life. While I do not wish to promote a spiritual point of view here, as a practitioner of mystic meditation I found these words of Maharishi’s on death and grief to be insightful.

    “When someone dies, it is because at that point, their karma has become insurmountable in the present body. It is not possible to understand why death had to come when it did, and there is certainly no point in assuming responsibility and guilt. The course of action was unfathomable. However, especially for someone on the path of speedy evolution of soul (meditation, spiritual practice etc.), the transition is purely evolutionary. They go to the celestial realms, or are reborn almost immediately. When life leaves the body, it is the breath leaving, like transcending. For one who has been accustomed to this experience for many years, the transition is easy, painless and blissful, not catastrophic. Dropping the body is like letting a bird out of its cage. Grief is natural. At first when grief is deep and sharp, these emotions of the family and friends allow the soul to feel that they were loved very deeply. It is also natural that the grieving should taper off, allowing the soul to feel that their passing was not a drag on the life of their beloved ones, and that they are free to move onto their destiny. It is important to feel positivity and support for the departed souls wherever they be, because our attitude affects their evolution.”

    The night she died, we (me and my daugther) saw Worlds Away – the movie. And after we talked about the amazing (and dangerous) performance the artists show uw, day in, day out, and we remembered the show we saw two years ago. The next day I heard about the accident and I realized even more than the day before, that the artists are humans, who have a life outside their work, family, friends, partner, children… And all of them have to learn to live without this beautiful woman, who lives in their memory! I wish them all the best in their lifes! And for Sarah: rest in piece

  4. Ombra says:

    I didn’t know her, but as a CDS fan I really felt sad with the news. Just sending virtual hugs to her family and friends.

  5. KarenD says:

    I saw Ka for the first time the night before this horrible tragedy and heard the news on my way to see O. My heart goes out to Sarah’s partner and children and all the members of the Cirque family. May you find peace and healing.

  6. David says:


    The Circus will go on
    Forever dimmer with you gone
    But your art transcends your death

    No way to reason the rune
    Why the piper called the tune
    We accept we’ll never know

    Small by small you made big waves
    On gilded roads that hard work paves
    You achieved so much so soon

    Your grand-mere Micheline
    Gave you strength to live your dream
    You lived your dream Sasoun

    We’ll keep you behind our head
    In our minds, that goes unsaid
    You will never be forgotten

    You liked that ash could be a tree
    To breathe again in living green
    You are a beautiful and sheltering tree

    There’s so much left unsaid
    But less is more and more is less
    We voice our silent love

    Devoted to art and child
    You shone, you taught, you smiled
    Good job Sasoun!

  7. Commix Communications Inc. says:

    Please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss. Our thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.

  8. Craig & Melisa and Sully Walter says:

    Sarah, you shared your passion with all our precious children and we are forever grateful and will cherish the memories of all the little performances you made for us. I pray that your children will find their own passion in life like you and follow their dreams as you did.
    You will always be loved and never forgotten~

  9. Andrew Welch says:

    I never knew Sarah, never got to see an actual production of Ka – every time I was in Vegas I was too busy with NASCAR – however, I recently lost my mother-in-law. I posted this for her, but it seems strangely appropriate here:

    Perhaps they are not stars,
    but openings in heaven
    where the love of our lost ones
    pours through and shines down
    upon us to let us know they are happy.

    – Eskimo saying

  10. Janne Pehkonen says:

    It is often said that something may survive of a person after his death if that person was an artist and put a little of himself into his work. It is perhaps in the same way that a sort of cutting taken from one person and grafted onto the heart of another continues to carry on its existence even when the person from whom it had been detached has perished. I will never forget you, Sarah!

  11. Cindy says:

    I saw KA this past April and was amazing at the talent of all the performers. She had an amazing gift and it’s a horrible tragedy. She will be missed.

  12. Geneviève Caron says:

    Je partage ma peine mais aussi, mon soutien et mon amour et amitié, à toutes les personnes touchées de près ou de loin par la perte de Sarah. One Love…..

  13. Gabriela Villalobos says:

    My prayers are with you and the family. Thank you for being such a dedicated artist/entertainer.

    Now it’s time to shine bright like a Diamond in the sky!

  14. Jennifer Romero says:

    Wow what a beautiful and amazingly talented young women Sarah was. She will truly be missed always. <3

  15. Alain et Martine says:

    Mathieu, nous t’envoyons toute notre affection et notre force pour toi et tes enfants .
    nous vous embrassons .

  16. Eileen P. Eamon says:

    I saw KA in 2009 and thought it was brilliant…thank you, Sassoun, for all your performances. I would have liked to have known you and been a friend. In all that I have read…you were a wonderful person. I am sure your babies have your strength and there is much love for them. Fly with the angels, Sarah and know that you touched many lives with positive energy and this part of your journey on earth was well done.

  17. Irina says:

    До сих пор не могу поверить!.. =(
    Так несправедливо, когда талантливые артисты уходят из жизни рано. Очень хотелось бы поддержать ее семью, друзей, поклонников… И, конечно, Ги Лалиберте и коллег Сары, потому что это действительно большая потеря для цирка. Держитесь, ребята!(
    Светлая тебе память, Сара…(((

  18. Carlos Martinelli says:

    I watched you in 2011 and that was an unforgetable night. Thank you so much… and I´d like to send our prayers and thoughts from Brazil.

  19. Taboureau says:

    Sarah est Eternelle par son Talent d Acrobate, son destin tragique est bouleversant… RIP Sarah… Eric Taboureau, Dijon, France.

  20. Taboureau says:

    Sarah est Immortelle de par son talent d acrobate… Elle nous manquera… RIP Sarah… Eric.

  21. Henriet christophe says:

    J ai vu kâ 6 fois ! Je suis un homme de spectacle qui aime le spectacle et respecte par dessus tout ceux qui nous l offrent ! Acheter un billet pour s assoir, rêver et vivre des émotions ne devrait jamais se faire au prix d une vie ! La réalité nous rappelle souvent que les artistes font un métier dangereux ! L’idée est insupportable mais elle a ceci de paradoxale qu elle rend leur art proprement divin ! Je suis Si triste pour sa famille son mari et ses enfants ! Si heureux de l avoir applaudie et d avoir vibre de ses prouesses physiques et artistiques ! Je la devine heureuse d avoir eu la chance de vivre de sa passion et suis si touche Qu elle l ait payée de sa vie ! Le spectacle est un monde si dure et si beau ! Même si pour elle je n ai été qu un simple spectateur je penserai à elle jusqu à la fin de mes jours .

  22. Amy says:

    About a month has now passed since this horrific accident and although I did not know Sarah and never have seen a Cirque production, I have had this family on heart as their lives have been altered/impacted forever. Sending love, light, and wisdom to those family and friends who are feeling the gravity of this loss set in more and more each day. May Sarah’s light shine through you…

  23. jongkwan baek says:

    최고의 곡예사로 영원히 기억될 것 입니다.
    명복을 빕니다!
