  • Rob Bollinger

    Acrobatic Performance Designer

    Rob Bollinger was a competitive trampolinist at the age of 9 and partnered with his father on the invention of the double mini trampoline as his family owned a trampoline club in Illinois, where he grew up. He studied Business at Indiana University on a scholarship as a competitive springboard diver. He won two Big Ten and two NCAA national diving championships and qualified for the 1980 and 1984 Olympics trials. He did not make the team on either occasion, and at first turned away from the world of competitive sports. After a brief period working in aeronautics and insurance, Rob found the pull of acrobatics too strong to resist, so he went to work in diving shows in theme parks, which led him around the world. On his return to the United States he put his talents as a diver and trampolinist to work in film and television as a professional stunt man, notably for Universal Studios. Rob joined Cirque du Soleil in 1993 during the creation of the first resident show Mystère as a coach and artist in the show’s original house troupe.

  • ジョナサン・ディーンズ(Jonathan Deans)

    サウンド・デザイナー

    ミュージカルの世界で最も人気の高いサウンド・デザイナーの 1 人と言われるジョナサン・ディーンズは、Viva ELVIS(ビバ・エルビス)の音環境を担当した人物です。Saltimbanco(サルティンバンコ)、Mystère(ミステール)、“O”(オー)、La Nouba(ラ・ヌーバ)、ZUMANITY(ズーマニティ)、KÀ(カー)、Corteo(コルテオ)、The Beatles LOVE(ザ・ビートルズ・ラブ)、KOOZA(クーザ)、Wintuk(ウィントゥック)、CRISS ANGEL Believe(クリス・エンジェル ビリーブ)、そして最新作の OVO(オヴォ)でサウンドスケープをクリエイトしてきたことを通して、Cirque で制作中の作品やチームワークによるクリエイティブ���アプローチがかなり刺激的であることを認めています。

    彼は幼い頃、エレクトロニクスに夢中でした。15 歳のときに俳優としてロイヤルシェークスピア劇団に入団し、そこでサウンドへの強い関心が演劇的な要素に溶け込むきっかけとなりました。数年後、音楽業界でサウンド・エンジニアの肩書きを持つようになり、特に Morgan Studios でキャット・スティーブンス、ポール・サイモン、リック・ウェイクマンなどのアーティストと肩を並べて仕事をしたのち、彼はロイヤル・オペラハウス(コベントガーデン)で再び演劇の仕事を手がけるようになり、その後、ミュージカルの「コーラスライン」ではサウンドミキシングを担当しました。彼は次から次へと成功を収め、サウンド・ミキシング・エンジニアとして、「エビータ」、「キャッツ」、「ダウンタウン物語」、「サウンド・オブ・ミュージック」をはじめとする数多くの作品を手がけるようになりました。

    ミキシング・サウンド・エンジニアとしての成功により、彼はミュージカル「マリリン」のサウンド・デザイナーとして雇われることになりました。その後、「タイム」、「レ・ミゼラブル」、「カリブの反乱」、「ジーン・セバーグ」などのウェストエンドのショーを手がけたのち、ブロードウェイで、「ラグタイム」、「フォッシー」、「ダビデ王」、「くたばれ!ヤンキース」、「タブー」、「ブルックリン」、「吸血鬼レスタト」、「パイレート・クィーン」、「ヤング・フランケンシュタイン」の制作に携わりました。

    ジョナサン・ディーンズにとって、Cirque の常設ショーとビッグトップは、それぞれサウンドデザインの面ではまったくの別世界です。「それらはそれぞれに技術的な要求が異なりますが、音楽とサウンドのテクスチャーとレイヤーに関する限りは、いずれも同じです」と彼は言います。「自分の仕事はすべての作品にユニークな環境を創り上げることです。そして、それがどんな環境であっても、作り出される音響によって、観客が別世界に足を踏み入れていることを実感できるようにする必要があると考えます」。

    「ショーには本物のエルビスは登場しませんが、ショーの要素はすべてエルビスに結びついています。そのため、サウンド・システムで視覚と同じ音響効果を生み出すことは大変に重要で、それらはすべてエルビスの名に値するものでなければならないと思います」。「Viva ELVIS の劇場は、彼の偉大な伝説にふさわしく巨大なものです。その課題に対応できるサウンドを作り出すために、床部分にサブウーファーを埋め込み、コンクリート構造自体が持つ低周波の共鳴音を利用して、低周波の音振動を加えることができるようになりました。これはサウンド効果を生み出すだけでなく、文字通り、生演奏に合わせて観客席を動かすものです」。

    ジョナサン・ディーンズは英国で生まれ、現在はニューヨークに在住しています。

  • Nathalie Gagné

    Makeup Designer

    Makeup Designer Nathalie Gagné has been fascinated by makeup and its influence on the actor’s craft since her teens. She studied theatre production at Cégep de Saint-Hyacinthe, a community college in Quebec, then went on to become one of the first graduates of the Montreal subsidiary of the famed Paris-based makeup school École Christian Chauveau.

    Before joining Cirque du Soleil, Gagné worked in theatre, film and television. She was twice nominated for a Gémeau award for best makeup, all categories combined. The honor is conferred by the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television.

    “Makeup is a reflection of the character’s soul. It’s also a magic wand that sweeps away inhibitions,” says Gagné, who since 1995 has crafted more than 200 separate makeup designs for Cirque. Her final concepts were culled from over 2,000 sketches.

    Since Cirque performers have to apply their own makeup, Nathalie Gagné involves them in the actual creation of their onstage look. “Unlike actors, acrobats aren’t used to studying their own faces,” she says. “One of my goals is to get them to do just that, and help them find within themselves what I call ‘lines of force’ that will serve to build their characters.”

    Nathalie Gagné is also responsible for ensuring the integrity of all makeup designs that bear her signature. Since the performers apply their own makeup, workshops in makeup techniques are now part of the general training provided to Cirque du Soleil artists. Gagné first teaches performers how to do their own makeup, and then writes a step-by-step application guide for each of them.

    Nathalie introduced new makeup concepts to the shows Mystère, Alegría and Saltimbanco, which led her to work with director Franco Dragone and costume designer Dominique Lemieux. Following her work on Quidam, “O”, La Nouba, Varekai, Zumanity, KÀ, Corteo, Delirium, LOVE, ZAIA and CRISS ANGEL Believe™ is Nathalie Gagné’s eleventh contribution to the creation of a Cirque du Soleil show.

    "To establish the rich, ripe characters in CRISS ANGEL Believe™, we worked the way we do in film, – designers and artists building together – to invent each of the personalities,” says Nathalie. By using costumes and projections as components of the makeup, we are looking to create a crazy but perfectly credible universe. We wanted to turn the improbable into the plausible. "

    Nathalie Gagné was born in 1963 in Trois-Pistoles, in the Lower St. Lawrence region of Quebec.
