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

Danny Zen

Acrobatic Equipment and Rigging Designer
KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities

Danny Zen first arrived at Cirque du Soleil in 1990 to work as a welder in the company's workshops. That same year he went on the first European tour of Le Cirque Réinventé, then moved on to Nouvelle Expérience on which he worked as a welder, assembler, mechanic and head usher. In 1992 he toured with Saltimbanco as a tent technician.

Since 1993 Danny has worked in the continuing development of the Creative Studio at Cirque du Soleil. His innovations as head rigger and technical expert are largely responsible for establishing Cirque's demanding standards in training all its riggers, and maintaining the safety of the performers and technicians at all times.

Danny has worked at the National Circus School in Montreal and has, over the years, contributed to the design of most of the aerial acrobatic equipment used in the Cirque du Soleil shows Alegría, Mystère, Quidam, Dralion, Varekai, "O", La Nouba and. He was also Head Rigger for Quidam in 1996. In 2008, he designed the rigging and equipment for the acrobatics show at the Quebec City 400th anniversary celebrations.

Zarkana is Danny Zen’s third engagement as Acrobatic Equipment and Rigging Designer for a Cirque du Soleil show, following Corteo and KOOZA.

“The acrobatic equipment on Zarkana was designed to blend in with the 1930s-inspired décor of the show,” he says. “The action of the show is set in the same period. I'm fascinated by the curves and organic shapes of that era and I've been inspired by the French Art Nouveau master glassmaker and jeweler Lalique and the Spanish architect and engineer Calatrava."

Danny Zen was born in Saint-Luc, Québec.
