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

Travis Payne

Choreographer

Twice Emmy-nominated choreographer, director, and producer Travis Payne is an acknowledged innovator of screen, stage, and song. Born and raised in Atlanta, Payne’s work encompasses some of the most influential visual and musical moments of contemporary pop culture, created for and performed by global entertainment icons from Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Shakira, and Usher to Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, The Pussycat Dolls’, Nicole Scherzinger, and Madonna. Payne was a collaborator on and off for more than 15 years with the late Michael Jackson. He served as associate director and co-choreographer with Michael as he prepared for his series of sold-out shows in London in July 2009 and was the associate producer on the award winning film, Michael Jackson’s This Is It, documenting those rehearsals. Payne began his career as a dancer on Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814 World Tour and was soon choreographing for Jackson and En Vogue as well as Madonna, Sting, Lenny Kravitz, Paula Abdul, Faith Hill, and Ricky Martin. In addition to his Emmy Awards, Payne is a two-time recipient of the Music Video Producers Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Choreography, an Obie Award winner, and a four-time winner of the MTV Video Music Award for Best Choreography. Michael Jackson ONE is his second collaboration with Cirque du Soleil after Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour.
