Cirque du Soleil

所有的一切,都是從加拿大魁北克市附近的小鎮 Baie-Saint-Paul 開始。在那裏,在 80 年代早期,有一隊充滿特色的樂隊在街頭流浪,踩高蹺,表演雜耍,跳舞,表演噴火和演奏音樂。他們是 Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul(Baie-Saint-Paul 街頭浪人),是一個由 Gilles Ste-Croix 建立的街頭表演團隊。這群年輕的表演者給小鎮的居民留下非常深刻的印象,包括後來成立太陽劇團並出任 CEO 的 Guy Laliberté。

 
 
 

傳記

Jean-François Bouchard

Chief Creative Content Officer
IRIS

Jean-François Bouchard has many years of experience in design and a solid artistic and technical background. In 1982, armed with a college degree in civil engineering and additional science courses, he joined the new environmental design program offered by the Université du Québec à Montréal. As part of his studies, he designed a prototype for a backpack that converted into a tent – and the finished product was purchased by the U.S. Army!

Upon graduation in 1984 he started his own design company which rapidly found success in the Montreal area. Between 1985 and 1990 he designed interiors for several financial institutions, including branches of the Bank of Nova Scotia and the Royal Bank.

Between 1990 and 1995, his designs set the tone and atmosphere of a dozen downtown Montreal bars and restaurants. He followed this with designs for shops and exhibition stands specializing in the field of fashion.

Jean-François joined Cirque du Soleil in 2001, following three years as a freelance contributor. He first made his mark with the design of the boutique connected with the La Nouba theatre in Downtown Disney West Side in Orlando. He was then appointed Senior Director of Creation and became a key member of Cirque's Special Events design team. His most recent projects include The Beatles REVOLUTION LOUNGE at The Mirage and the Gold Boutique Nightclub and Lounge at Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

In 2010 Jean-François was named Vice President, New Show Creation and in 2012 he became Vice President, Creation and Development. His role is to support the company’s creative ventures and includes the assignment of challenging opportunities to talented young designers.

"IRIS uses a perfectly adapted language of acrobatics as a framework," says Jean-François Bouchard. “That enables the show to present its theme of cinema as seen through the double prism of Cirque du Soleil and the world of its director, Philippe Decouflé."

Jean-François Bouchard was born in Sept-Îles, Quebec.
