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

Jeanette Farmer

Lighting Designer

Jeanette Farmer is a native Las Vegan. She first developed her strong interest in theatrical lighting and set design when she was still in high school. She went on to attend the University of Nevada Las Vegas under a theatre design scholarship program while also attending Clark County Community College taking classes in welding, industrial electricity, electronics and computer drafting.

After a few years of set and lighting design and stagecraft work on The Las Vegas Strip, Jeanette became one of lighting designer Andrew Bridge’s assistants on the groundbreaking production of “Siegfried and Roy at the Mirage.”

It was through that engagement that Jeanette was introduced to a then little-known touring company that needed help setting up their show in a tent behind the Mirage. That show was Cirque du Soleil’s Nouvelle Experience and it was Jeanette’s first opportunity to work with acclaimed lighting designer Luc Lafortune. “I met all these crazy French Canadian artists and amazing creators and fell in love!” she says. “I knew I'd found my home.”

Jeanette has dedicated the last several years to Cirque du Soleil honing her skills as an electrical consultant, lighting director and master electrician as she contributed to every one of Cirque's growing repertoire of permanent shows in Las Vegas: She consulted on the electrical and building infrastructure and lighting for Mystère, “O”, Zumanity, KÀ and LOVE.

Throughout her career Jeanette has volunteered in the education of young theatre technicians through her work with the Thespian Society, the Educational Theatre Association, the Lighting Dimensions Conference Advisory Board, served as a Subject Matter Expert for ESTA’s ETCP certification test and acted as a sponsor for Cirque du Soleil’s college internship program.

“I've been challenged with the lighting design for CRISS ANGEL Believe to create something that has an old world feel,” she says. “We’ll be using all the latest modern technology to evoke a bygone era. We will challenge your senses by revealing through lighting that there is nothing up our sleeve and then take away your comfort by presenting the impossible.”

Jeanette Farmer was born in 1964 in Las Vegas.
