Cirques (alternatively known as Corries in Scotland and Cwm's in Wales) are masses of ice that carve out an arm-chair shaped hollow with a steep back wall and a steep headwall. Snow fall collects in the already evident (if not small) hollow on the mountain side. They are prevalent on north facing slopes as they recieve less sunlight so accumulation exceeds ablation. A series of processes collectively known as Nivation (processes that occur under and near a snow patch) including freeze-thaw, solifluction, erosion, weathering etc. These processes cause the underlying rocks to disintegrate, and the hollow deepens. As the snow patch grows, its layers become increasingly compressed to form firn and eventually ice. Plucking steepens and scours the sidewalls and headwall, as the material is removed from the valley sides. A rotational movement of ice flow enables abrasion to deepen the hollow further. Cirques often form valley glaciers as they fill up the hollow and spill over the rock lip.
A cirque is formed by a glaciers

A ' Tarn' is a mountain lake or pool formed in a cirque excavated by a glacier.
A cirque glacier is a small glacier that occupies a cirque or rests against the headwall of a cirque. A cirque is a deep, horseshoe-shaped hollow with steep walls which was created by erosive activity of glaciers.

Cirque means Circus
'Cirque' means circus.
Cirque as in Cirque de solei
A mountain is a sharpened peak formed by the glacial actions of three cirques on a mountaintop. Since we know that a cirque is a bowl-shaped basin formed by EROSION and a mountain horn is formed by three CIRQUES it becomes clear that mountain horns are formed by erosion.
Cirque du Soleil means Circus of the Sun Cirque (circus) du (of the) Solail (sun)

What can happen when the glacier melts in a cirque
it is not part of the Cirque de Soleil shows but is created by former Cirque de Soleil acrobat and aerialist Michael McPherson
