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

Guy Lemire

Acrobatic Equipment and Rigging Designer

Guy Lemire is an inveterate, tinkerer at heart. Compelled to assemble and disassemble anything mechanical as a child, he spent much of his youth playing in the alleys of his neighborhood, spending hours building all kinds of projects.

Guy first got interested in theatre in high school via an amateur troupe of mild-mannered rebels. He attended the National Theatre School of Canada in 1986, installing theatrical equipment in the old Monument National theatre, a performance space that used a system of sandbags as a counterweights, perches, claws and ropes. "In short, it was a fabulous school," he recalls.

Curious and creative – essential qualities in his profession – Guy established a solid reputation in the world of Montreal theatre as a director of set design concepts involving mechanical components. He worked on numerous productions at the Theatre du Trident (Quebec), the Quebec City Summer Festival, the Montreal theatres Monument National, Theatre de Quat'Sous, Theatre du Nouveau Monde, as well as for several touring productions. He also designed the sets for Océania, a multimedia virtual entertainment installation in Montreal.

Cirque du Soleil first approached Guy to design and implement some of the set elements and act as project manager for the show KÀ, in 2002. Following the success of KÀ, he went on to work on the Cirque productions LOVE and Dralion.

In 2006, Guy Lemire became Cirque du Soleil’s Acrobatic Equipment Research Specialist, a position that led to his first appointment as a creator with his rigging designs for ZAIA.

"The safety of the artists is always our primary concern,” says Guy Lemire. “On the creative front, I am particularly proud to have contributed to the design of the equipment in the trampoline number – two tracks in the form of an X that cross in the center on a springboard. It’s a complex system that allows both units to respond independently."

Guy Lemire was born in 1964, in Baie-du-Febvre, Quebec.
