Cirque du Soleil

Alles begann in Kanada, genauer gesagt in Baie-Saint-Paul, einer Kleinstadt in der Nähe von Quebec. Anfang der Achtziger begann dort eine bunte Truppe von Stelzenläufern, Jongleuren, Tänzern, Feuerschluckern und Musikern, die Straßen unsicher zu machen. Die Kleinkunstgruppe um Gilles Ste-Croix nannte sich „Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul“ (Die Stelzenläufer von Baie-Saint-Paul). Schon damals waren die Einwohner beeindruckt und begeistert von den jungen Künstlern, darunter Guy Laliberté, der spätere Gründer und Leiter des Cirque du Soleil.

 
 
 

Biografie

Wade Robson

Choreographer

Wade Robson is just 25 and he’s already accumulated 20 years of experience under his belt as a major creative force. Recognized worldwide as an artist of truly exceptional genius and brilliance, Wade has choreographed and directed music videos, commercials, award shows and world tours for recording artists. He created, produced and starred in MTV’s hit series The Wade Robson Project and has written, choreographed and directed commercials for his own line of footwear, as well as award-winning short films.

Born in Australia, Wade made his professional début as a dancer at the age of five. He and his family then moved to America when he was nine to pursue his career in the entertainment business. Before he turned ten he had danced and acted in Michael Jackson videos, multiple commercials, films and TV shows.

At the age of 12, Wade began teaching dance at the Millennium Dance Complex in North Hollywood, CA. This led to his first professional choreography job for MCA recording artists Immature. He began to create a dance style that was all his own, accompanied by his own original music.

When Wade was only16 he was asked to choreograph Britney Spears’ 1999 world tour and to write, direct, remix the music, direct the video segments and co-design the sets for her appearances on the Billboard Awards, both the American and European MTV Video Music Awards and her Dream Within a Dream world tour and HBO special . These assignments led to the same job description with NSYNC. He went on to write and produce music for such recording artists as Britney Spears, NSYNC, Justin Guarini, Dream, The Backstreet Boys, James Ingram and Carly Simon, and he has also choreographed for Usher, Mya and Pink.

Wade won an Emmy in 2007 for his groundbreaking work on Fox’s SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE.

CRISS ANGEL Believe is the first Cirque du Soleil show Wade has worked on. “A lot of the style, the emotion behind the movement, is really primal and raw,” he says. “The dance is character and story driven and that is my most favorite place to create from.”

Wade Robson was born in Brisbane, Australia in 1982.
