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

Guy Caron

創意總監
導演
Dralion

Caron was Cirque's first Artistic Director when the company was created in 1984. He is also the founder of Montreal 's National Circus School. After an absence of a few years to pursue other interests, he returned to Cirque in 1998 to direct Dralion (1999) and work as Director of Creation on KÀ (2004).

Guy Caron is one of the main pioneers of the rebirth of the circus arts. In 1975, when no circus existed in Quebec, Guy Caron left for Hungary and studied for three years at the École de cirque de Budapest. In 1981, he founded the École nationale de cirque de Montréal with Pierre Leclerc. He was its executive director for ten years.

He regularly seats on the juries of many circus festivals all over the world. From 1987 to 1989, he was the executive director of the Centre national des arts du cirque de Châlons-en-Champagne, in France. Since 1992, he has been a consultant and director for well-known circuses in Switzerland, France and the United States. In 1996, he directed three acts that won the Clown d'Or award at the Festival de Monte Carlo. These acts were performed by members of the Swiss family Knie.

Guy Caron came to the circus arts through a fortuitous encounter with clowns Rodrigue Tremblay and Sonia Côté, alias Chatouille and Chocolat, in the 1970s. With them, he went to Hungary, and once back in Montreal, he was at the forefront of the public entertainers who were precursors to Cirque du Soleil. He owes his vocation as an actor to his mentor, man of theatre Paul Buissonneau. "He gave me everything: my tools as an actor, my first professional job, and even, quite often, his theatre, the Quat'Sous," he says.

Circus arts are far from being the only field where Guy Caron has left his mark. He has four times been a member of the creative team for Quebec singer Diane Dufresne's shows. He has also worked on scenarios and as an artistic director or director for many forms of variety shows, especially cabarets, musicals, singing and magic.

Guy Caron has also taken university courses in performance arts administration. This education has served, among other things, to help him sit for four years on the board of directors of the École nationale de cirque de Montréal and for three years on the board of the Festival mondial du cirque de demain, in Paris.
