Cirque du Soleil






太陽劇團的多學問表演方式與長達三千年歷史的中國傳統雜技藝術相互融合,Dralion 源自東方哲學的啟發,以及對人類與自然和諧統一的不斷探索。表演名稱源自兩種象徵性動物︰ 東方的象徵龍(dragon)與西方的象徵獅子(lion)。

Dralion,維持自然規律的四大元素將會化身為人類型態。其美艷動人的色彩體現每種元素的特質︰ 藍色為天空,水為綠色,火為紅色,大地為土黃色。在 Dralion 的世界裡,文化融合,人類與大自然成一體,世界取得平衡。

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.
