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

Florence Pot

Acrobatic Performance Designer

A gymnast at the age of six, Florence Pot completed her university degree in physical education in France and went on to specialize in sports psychology. She decided to move to Montreal in 1991 primarily to continue her academic career.

She studied for her master's degree in sports psychology at the University of Montreal while working as a coach at the club Gymnix de Montréal. She returned to France two years later to choreograph performances for the French Gymnastics Federation.

Motivated by a lack of professional challenges in France and a strong desire to work at Cirque du Soleil, Florence came back to Canada in 1997 to renew her network of contacts with the company and to choreograph performances by Canadian competitive gymnasts.

In 2001, she accepted a position scouting acrobatic talent for Cirque's casting department and in 2003 she became the company’s Head Scout. In 2006 she accepted the invitation to become Acrobatic Performance Designer on ZED (Cirque's resident show in Tokyo) because she wanted to get closer to the creation process and be part of it from start to finish. She reprised the same role on TOTEM and Zarkana.

"What interests me most is the emotion that emerges from the performance of an artist on stage,” says Florence. “The acrobatic framework of Zarkana was born in a world that was firmly rooted in the circus, where virtuosity cohabits with madness. We were inspired by traditional circus sideshows to highlight the crazy and decadent side of Zark’s world.”

Florence Pot was born in Rouen, France.
