Cirque du Soleil






利用太阳剧团的综艺方式熔化拥有 3000 年历史的中国杂技艺术,超越极限 (Dralion) 从东方哲学和其对人类与自然之间的和谐共处的永无止境的寻求当中获得灵感。该演出的名称来源于其两个标志性生物: 龙,象征东方;狮子,象征西方。

Dralion 中,管控自然规律的四大元素披上了人类的外形。因此,被形象化的每个元素都由其各自的唤起色表示: 空气是蓝色;水是绿色;火是红色;大地是赭色。在 Dralion 的世界里,各种文化相融合,人类与自然合为一体,并且平衡得以实现。

Dralion - Costumes

The primary sources of inspiration for the costumes of Dralion come from China, India and Africa. The palette favors vibrant solid colors, while the shapes are guided by the artists’ movements and choreography.

Each of the four elements and its associated family are represented by their own unique color. Blue is identified with air, green symbolizes water, red is for fire, and ochre represents the earth.


  • Over 5,000 meters (16,000 feet) of fabric were used in creating the costumes;
  • The fabrics come from regions around the globe, including China, the United States, Italy, France, England and Quebec;
  • Materials that might be considered unusual were used in creating costumes and accessories: horse hair, raffia, metal, window screen, emu feathers, crystals, styrofoam, plastic, bubble wrap, fun fur, springs and an array of hardware items;
  • To create the texture on the chest plate of the singer’s costume, bugs were glued on and then molded into different shapes;
  • The artisans at the Cirque du Soleil costume workshop in Montreal worked for over three months fabricating the original costumes, hats, wigs and footwear required for Dralion. New costumes are continuously made.
  • The majority of the Dralion costumes are custom-made for each artist, including shoes and head pieces.
  • Dralion has close to 1,500 costume pieces including shoes, hats and accessories.
  • The Dralion wardrobe team includes 4 permanent touring staff and 3 local wardrobe employees in each city. The wardrobe team is responsible for maintaining and repairing all costumes.
  • The Dralion tour travels with washers and dryers because most costume pieces are machine washable and then hung to dry.
  • Over 300 pairs of shoes are cleaned and painted by hand every week.
