Cirque du Soleil

Het begon allemaal in Baie-Saint-Paul, een dorpje vlak bij Quebec City in Canada. Daar trok begin jaren '80 een groep kleurrijke personages door de straten, op stelten, jonglerend, dansend, vuurspuwend en musicerend. Zij vormden 'Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul' (de steltenlopers van Baie-Saint-Paul), een straattheatergezelschap opgericht door Gilles Ste-Croix. Toen al waren de mensen in het dorp erg onder de indruk van de jonge artiesten, waaronder een zekere Guy Laliberté, de latere oprichter en CEO van Cirque du Soleil.
 
 
 

Biografie

Anne-Séguin Poirier

Props Designer

For the past 10 years, Anne-Séguin Poirier has worked as a set and costume designer for theatre, circus, opera and exhibits.

Since 2005 she has designed sets and props for shows directed by Quebec multimedia creators Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, including the Cirque du Soleil show DELIRIUM, Starmania Opera (a production of the Opéra de Montréal), La Belle et la bête for the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde and Norman, a heartfelt tribute to Canadian filmmaker Norman McLaren for the company 4Dart.

Anne-Séguin designed costumes for stage directors and choreographers Peter James, Gypsy Snider, Shanna Carroll and Lemieux-Pilon. She also designed the props for the Cirque Eloize shows directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, and Quebec director Gilles Maheu’s production of Don Juan. In 2010 she designed costumes for the opening ceremonies of the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games.

IRIS marks the second time Anne-Séguin has worked on a Cirque du Soleil show following DELIRIUM.

“The IRIS props are straight out of a cabinet of curiosities,” she says. “There are found objects, intricate machinery and valuable film props – and they’re all variations on the themes of sound, light and illusion. They tell our own story of the creation of the cinema from the early inventions and machines to the major film studios.”

Anne-Séguin Poirier was born in Montréal.
