Cirque du Soleil предлагает представителям СМИ пресс-подборки с информацией о различных шоу и корпоративной информацией.

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

Natacha Merritt

Projection Designer

The publication of Digital Diaries in 2000 marked the beginning of Natacha Merritt's spectacular rise in the world of photography. Her projections, both intimate and larger-than-life, represent her first contribution to the visual component of a Cirque du Soleil show. Working in an environment she spontaneously dubs a "creative paradise," she brings to Zumanity her unique perspective on the human body and its manifestations.

Pursuing her childhood dream to become a lawyer, Natacha was studying law at the Sorbonne in Paris, when, after only three months, she abandoned her studies in favour of a new passion: erotic photography.

Armed with a digital camera, Natacha has created a series of portraits and self-portraits documenting her sexual encounters—alone or with lovers—and has published her digital records on the Internet. The digital format allows her to immortalize her most personal moments and reveal her most intimate sexual self with refreshing ingenuousness. Her work received notice through her website and, in particular, attracted the attention of Taschen, publishers of Digital Diaries.

Since the appearance of this landmark oeuvre, Natacha has devoted herself to digital video, leaving her unique signature on a number of ads as well as three documentaries for Warner Brothers. She is currently working on the screenplay for a feature-length film.

Natacha Merritt was born in San Francisco in 1977.
