Cirque du Soleil

创始于加拿大魁北克市附近的一个小镇-拜圣保罗。在八十年代早期,有一群各色各样的人游荡在小镇的街道上,有的踩高跷,有的耍把戏,有的跳舞,有的表演吐火,还有的在演奏音乐。他们是 Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul(拜圣保罗的踩高跷者),由 Gilles Ste-Croix 创建的一个街头剧团。这群年轻的表演者给小镇居民留下了深刻的印象并激起了他们浓厚的兴趣,其中就包括 Guy Laliberté,他之后创建了太阳剧团并担任 CEO。

 
 
 

个人简介

Renée April

Costume Designer

Renée April inherited her taste for fine fabrics, especially brocades and sumptuous velvets, from her seamstress mother, and began designing clothes at the age of twelve. After completing her training in theatre at the Collège Lionel-Groulx near Montreal in 1974, she started her career in set decoration, but quickly turned to costume design.

Renée has worked on some of the best-known recent American and Canadian films, including Blindness (2008) directed by Fernando Mereilles, Night at the Museum (2006) directed by Shawn Levy, The Day After Tomorrow (2004) by Ray Emmerich, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002) by George Clooney, who also starred, and Black Robe (1991) directed by Bruce Beresford. She also designed the costumes for The Red Violin (1998) directed by François Girard, writer and director of ZED.

Renée April has received numerous prizes and awards for her work, including three Gemini Awards (Canada), three Genie Award (Canada), including Best Costume Design for The Red Violin, and a Jutra Award (Quebec) for Best Art Direction on the same film.

"I always prefer works that project the viewer into a distant era,” says Renée. “Even though that calls for more in-depth research, I am not trying to replicate the era in great detail. I always concentrate more on an interpretation of it."

ZED is the first Cirque du Soleil productionRenée has worked on. "The experience of designing the costumes for this show is completely different from film work,” she says. “In film, you’re constantly in a rush. I make a pattern, and two days later the costume is on the cutting table. But on ZED I made 500 to 600 sketches, that had to take into account the extra demands that the acrobats’ flexibility, movements and harnesses add to the challenge.”

ZED is the meeting of two worlds: the sky – where iridescent colors, paler shades and pearl and silver predominate – and the earth, which recalls the Italian Renaissance, with an emphasis on ochre, green, intense turquoise, gold and Venetian blue. “I was aiming for a certain homogeneity and purity of line in keeping with the visual world of François Girard," explains Renée.
