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

Hansel Cereza

Acrobatic Performance Designer

The Spanish actor, choreographer and artistic director Hansel Cereza has traveled the world to bring his unique vision to theatre and dance productions large and small.

He co-founded the renowned theatre company La Fura dels Baus as a performer and creator. He also worked in special events including a show called “Mediterranean” which he created for the opening ceremonies of the 1992 Olympics in his native Barcelona.

Cereza left La Fura dels Baus in 1995 and has been working independently since 1996 putting on “Macro Shows” on a similar grand scale for major corporate clients.

Equally at home in the world of dance, with many choreography credits to his name, Cereza created a flamenco performance to launch the film Muerte en Granada, and directed a production of Vicente Amigo’s “Poet” for the Spanish National Ballet.

On LOVE Cereza is sharing choreography duties with Dave St-Pierre. He says he approached the challenge of creating choreographies for acrobats and other non-dancers by really getting to know the artists, finding out who they were, learning their fears, discovering what they were capable of and working very closely with them to tailor their movements to take advantage of their strength and physicality.

Hansel Cereza was born in Barcelona in 1957.
