Cirque du Soleil

すべてはケベックシティ(カナダ)の近郊の小さな町、ベ・サン・ポールで始まりました。1980 年代の初め頃、ベ・サン・ポールでは色とりどりの衣装をまとったキャラクターの一団が街を練り歩き、竹馬、ジャグリング、ダンス、火吹き、音楽などの芸を披露していました。彼らこそ、ジル・サンクロワが組織したストリートパフォーマンスのグループ、Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul(ベ・サン・ポールの竹馬乗り)でした。すでに街の人々はこの若いパフォーマーのグループに心を動かされ、魅せられていました。パフォーマーの中に、後に Cirque du Soleil の設立者のひとりとなり、CEO となるギー・ラリベルテもいました。

 
 
 

経歴

Guy Lemire

Acrobatic Equipment and Rigging Designer

Guy Lemire is an inveterate, tinkerer at heart. Compelled to assemble and disassemble anything mechanical as a child, he spent much of his youth playing in the alleys of his neighborhood, spending hours building all kinds of projects.

Guy first got interested in theatre in high school via an amateur troupe of mild-mannered rebels. He attended the National Theatre School of Canada in 1986, installing theatrical equipment in the old Monument National theatre, a performance space that used a system of sandbags as a counterweights, perches, claws and ropes. "In short, it was a fabulous school," he recalls.

Curious and creative – essential qualities in his profession – Guy established a solid reputation in the world of Montreal theatre as a director of set design concepts involving mechanical components. He worked on numerous productions at the Theatre du Trident (Quebec), the Quebec City Summer Festival, the Montreal theatres Monument National, Theatre de Quat'Sous, Theatre du Nouveau Monde, as well as for several touring productions. He also designed the sets for Océania, a multimedia virtual entertainment installation in Montreal.

Cirque du Soleil first approached Guy to design and implement some of the set elements and act as project manager for the show KÀ, in 2002. Following the success of KÀ, he went on to work on the Cirque productions LOVE and Dralion.

In 2006, Guy Lemire became Cirque du Soleil’s Acrobatic Equipment Research Specialist, a position that led to his first appointment as a creator with his rigging designs for ZAIA.

"The safety of the artists is always our primary concern,” says Guy Lemire. “On the creative front, I am particularly proud to have contributed to the design of the equipment in the trampoline number – two tracks in the form of an X that cross in the center on a springboard. It’s a complex system that allows both units to respond independently."

Guy Lemire was born in 1964, in Baie-du-Febvre, Quebec.
