Cirque du Soleil

Todo comenzó en Baie-Saint-Paul, un pueblo pequeño cerca de la ciudad de Quebec, en Canadá. A principios de 1980, un grupo de personajes coloridos deambulaba por las calles en zancos, haciendo malabares, bailando, tragando fuego y tocando música. Eran Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul (los caminadores sobre zancos de Baie-Saint-Paul), un grupo de artistas callejeros fundado por Gilles Ste-Croix. Los lugareños estaban impresionados e intrigados por los jóvenes artistas, entre los que se encontraba Guy Laliberté, quien más tarde fundaría y se convertiría en presidente del Cirque du Soleil.
 
 
 

Biografía

Mark Swanhart

Choreographer

Mark Swanhart began his dance studies at 7 years old in his hometown of Vinco, Pennsylvania and furthered those studies at Point Park College of Pittsburgh. After college, Mark made his professional debut with the James Kelley Choreography project and remained in Chicago to perform with Deeply Rooted Dance Chicago, River North Dance Company, and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. Mark then turned his focus to theater and joined the first national tour of Fosse.

Knowing his true calling was choreography, Mark headed for Los Angeles where he found his first choreography job on Baz Luhrman’s La Boheme on Broadway. He spent the next year maintaining the Broadway cast and then remounting the production in Los Angeles. Since then, Mark has choreographed music videos, stage productions, and national commercials.  Credits include the water fountains for Steve Wynn’s new casino in Macau, China; choreography for Celine Dion’s Taking Chances Tour, and her CBS Television Special.  Viva ELVIS is his first engagement with Cirque du Soleil as Choreographer.
