Cirque du Soleil

Цирк берет свое начало в квебекском городке Бе-Сент-Пол (Канада). Именно там в начале восьмидесятых годов прошлого века появилась группа, состоявшая из необычных персонажей, которые бродили по улицам на ходулях, показывали жонглерские трюки, танцевали, глотали огонь и играли на музыкальных инструментах. Эта группа уличных актеров, основанная Жилем Сте-Круа, называлась Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul (Артисты на ходулях из Бе-Сент-Пол). Уже тогда жители города были потрясены и даже заинтригована молодыми актерами, среди которых был и Ги Лалиберте, который позднее основал Cirque du Soleil, став его директором.

 
 
 

Биография

Jeanette Farmer

Lighting Designer

Jeanette Farmer is a native Las Vegan. She first developed her strong interest in theatrical lighting and set design when she was still in high school. She went on to attend the University of Nevada Las Vegas under a theatre design scholarship program while also attending Clark County Community College taking classes in welding, industrial electricity, electronics and computer drafting.

After a few years of set and lighting design and stagecraft work on The Las Vegas Strip, Jeanette became one of lighting designer Andrew Bridge’s assistants on the groundbreaking production of “Siegfried and Roy at the Mirage.”

It was through that engagement that Jeanette was introduced to a then little-known touring company that needed help setting up their show in a tent behind the Mirage. That show was Cirque du Soleil’s Nouvelle Experience and it was Jeanette’s first opportunity to work with acclaimed lighting designer Luc Lafortune. “I met all these crazy French Canadian artists and amazing creators and fell in love!” she says. “I knew I'd found my home.”

Jeanette has dedicated the last several years to Cirque du Soleil honing her skills as an electrical consultant, lighting director and master electrician as she contributed to every one of Cirque's growing repertoire of permanent shows in Las Vegas: She consulted on the electrical and building infrastructure and lighting for Mystère, “O”, Zumanity, KÀ and LOVE.

Throughout her career Jeanette has volunteered in the education of young theatre technicians through her work with the Thespian Society, the Educational Theatre Association, the Lighting Dimensions Conference Advisory Board, served as a Subject Matter Expert for ESTA’s ETCP certification test and acted as a sponsor for Cirque du Soleil’s college internship program.

“I've been challenged with the lighting design for CRISS ANGEL Believe to create something that has an old world feel,” she says. “We’ll be using all the latest modern technology to evoke a bygone era. We will challenge your senses by revealing through lighting that there is nothing up our sleeve and then take away your comfort by presenting the impossible.”

Jeanette Farmer was born in 1964 in Las Vegas.
