Cirque du Soleil

Tudo começou em Baie-Saint-Paul, uma pequena cidade próxima a Quebec City, no Canadá. Ali, no início dos anos 80, um grupo de personagens coloridos perambulava pelas ruas, caminhando sobre pernas-de-pau, fazendo malabarismos, dançando, engolindo fogo e tocando músicas. Eles eram os Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul (os Equilibristas de pernas-de-pau de Baie-Saint-Paul), um grupo teatral fundado por Gilles Ste-Croix. Os habitantes da cidade ficaram impressionados e fascinados com os jovens artistas, incluindo Guy Laliberté, que, mais tarde, fundaria o Cirque du Soleil e ali atuaria como CEO.

 
 
 

Biografia

Philippe Aubertin

Acrobatic performance Designer

Inspired by the enthusiasm surrounding the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal, Philippe Aubertin got started in gymnastics at the age of five. At 18 he was invited to join the national junior team but decided to withdraw from competition because of the physical demands that it imposes. Instead, he became coach at the Gymnastics Centre of Montreal, a position he held until 1999. During his tenure, he was certified by the Canadian Association of Coaches.

At the same time, Philippe pursued a university education in athletic training, but the appeal of Cirque du Soleil offered him new horizons.

Cirque's Director of Acrobatic Performance and Coaching, Boris Verkhovsky, hired him in 1999 to train artists at the company’s international headquarters in Montreal.

Philippe joined La Nouba in Florida as a coach, then took up duties in Japan as head coach on the touring show Saltimbanco. In 2004, he returned to Montreal as Cirque' s head coach before joining Corteo on the road for two years.
