Dralion

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 - 創作人

  • Guy Laliberté

    創始人

    Guy Laliberté 於 1959 年誕生於魁北克市。身兼手風琴師、高蹺和吞火特技表演者身分的他,在一小群同好的支持下,創立了魁北克首支享譽國際的馬戲劇團。Guy Laliberté 憑藉著大膽的遠見,肯定並培養在 Fête foraine de Baie-Saint-Paul 中嶄露頭角之街頭藝人的才華,隨後於 1984 年創立了 Cirque du Soleili (太陽劇團)。

    Guy Laliberté 首創結合文化、藝術美學與特技訓練的演出手法,也成為太陽劇團的正字商標。早自 1984 年開始,他便引導著創意團隊打造出一齣齣劇碼,同時投注己力將馬戲藝術推向更高水準的藝術殿堂。

    太陽劇團如今在其組成規模、活動和影響力範圍上,已經晉身國際組織之林。Guy Laliberté 目前領導的已是個活躍於五大洲的組織。

    2007 年 10 月,Guy Laliberté 開始投身其第二項終生事業 ONE DROP 基金會,致力於透過永續的方式取得安全無虞的飲用水,藉此改善世界各地的貧窮問題。這個嶄新的夢想源自對取得水源的權利乃全球社群和個人生存之所繫的體認,也是從太陽劇團創始之初便確立的核心價值:堅信受人點滴當亟思回饋,微小之舉可成重大之事。

    2009 年 9 月,Guy Laliberté 成為加拿大首位私人太空遊客。他希望藉由此舉讓世人注意到人類在地球上面臨的飲水問題。第一次的太空「詩意社會使命」(Poetic Social Mission),以地空連線,關懷水資源 (Moving Stars and Earth for Water) 為主題,目的在於透過藝術的手法感動人心,在特別製播的 120 分鐘 Webcast 節目中,呈現了在五大洲 14 個城市以及國際太空站中展開的多項藝術表演。

    重大獎項與榮譽肯定
    2012 年,Guy Laliberté 晉身美國博彩協會(American Gaming Association) 的博彩名人堂 (Gaming Hall of Fame)。2011 年進入加拿大商業名人堂 (Canadian Business Hall of Fame) 之列。2010 年,Guy Laliberté 獲得在傳奇的好萊塢星光大道 (Hollywood Walk of Fame) 上留下專屬星型勳章的殊榮。同年,魁北克政府為表揚其貢獻,更將六年前授予的騎士 (Chevalier) 勳章拔擢成為軍官 (Officier) 勳章,使其成為 Ordre de la Pléiade 的受勳者之一。2008 年,魁北克 Laval 大學 (Université Laval) 授予 Guy Laliberté 榮譽博士學位。前一年,Guy Laliberté 獲得安永 (Ernst & Young) 年度企業家大獎肯定,其獲獎層級涵蓋三大層級:魁北克、加拿大和國際。2004 年,他獲得加拿大總理頒發的加拿大最高榮譽加拿大勳章 (Order of Canada), 同年更獲得時代雜誌 (Time Magazine) 票選為全球百大影響力人士。2003 年,他獲選為 Condé Nast 集團的領先者計畫 (Never Follow Program) 之一,該計畫宗旨在於表彰傑出創造者和創新人士。2001 年,榮獲大蒙特婁學院 (Académie des Grands Montréalais) 提名為傑出蒙特婁公民 (Great Montrealer)。1997 年,Guy Laliberté 接受魁北克政府頒發的最高榮譽魁北克勳章 (Ordre National du Québec)。

  • Gilles Ste-Croix

    高級副總裁.創作內容

    Gilles Ste-Croix 最初向父母表示有意投身表演事業的時候,他們非常反對,更說道:「絕 對不可以!」在魁北克農村長大的 Gilles,決意要出外闖天下。他成為四海為家的嬉皮一 族,更在西岸生活了一段日子,並參與一些戲劇的面試。

    Gilles 曾經試圖改變, 甚至在一家建築公司工作了一段時期, 然而他明白到在內心深處, 實在無法接受投身傳統商業社會, 並以此為終身事業. 於此同時, 他在追尋適合計資的行業方面, 亦絕非漫無目的. 他指出早於少年時候, 便一直渴求取得驕人成就, 亦一直渴望能够娛樂大眾. 雖然他醉心娛樂事業, 但其入行經過出人意表。

    1970 年代後期,Gilles 居於魁北克省維多利亞維爾(Victoriaville),依靠採摘蘋果來維持生 計。有一天,他突然大發奇想,想到要是能在雙腿縛上長梯,便能輕易採摘蘋果,亦因 而設計出他的第一對高蹺。

    其後,一位朋友向Gilles提到美國佛蒙特州(Vermont)的麵包傀儡劇團(Bread and Puppet Theater),愛以踩高蹺作為很多表演項目的特色所在。Gilles 親身到該劇團觀摩,更領悟 到他以踩高蹺來採摘蘋果的技巧,可能會在娛樂事業中大派用場。

    到了1980年,Gilles 聯同一群街頭表演者成立了拜聖保羅高蹺表演團,其後更舉辦了「拜 聖保羅狂歡節」,呈獻形形色色的街頭表演。及至 1984 年,Gilles 攜手 Guy Laliberté創 辦了太陽劇團。

    1984及1985年,Gilles 為太陽劇團設計並演出很多高蹺劇目。在 1988 年,他成為戲團 的藝術總監,並在世界各地發掘潛質優厚的人才。1990 至 2000 年間,他擔任劇團創 作總監,負責劇團於期內的所有製作項目,包括:《Nouvelle Expérience》、《藝界人生》 (Saltimbanco)、《飛躍之旅》(Alegria)、《神秘境界》(Mystère)、《奇幻之旅》(Quidam)、 《夢幻嘉年華》(La Nouba)、《“O”》及《超越極限》(Dralion)。在1992年,他執導了太陽戲 團在日本首個於大帳篷演出的項目《Fascination》。此外,德國馬戲團餐廳「Pomp Duck and Circumstance」令人拍案叫絕的精彩晚宴表演,亦是由 Gilles 於 1997 年率先執導,開 創先猷。

    及至2000年,Gilles 在繼續任職太陽劇團顧問的同時,決定實現他其中一個偉大夢想: 由於他對馬匹非常著迷,所以自創公司,並於 2003 年製作了名為《Cheval-Théâtre》的表 演,最大特色是由 30 匹馬以及眾多雜技藝人在巨大帳篷內演出。《Cheval-Théâtre》曾在北 美洲十個城市巡迴演出。

    2002年12月起,Gilles 重返台陽劇團,担任新項目發展部的創作副總裁,并於 2006 年 7月獲任命為創作內容高級副總裁。

  • Guy Caron

    導演

    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.

  • François Barbeau

    服裝設計

    Costume designer, director, and teacher François Barbeau is one of the most renowned and respected stage artisans in Canada. In 1998, he joined the team of designers behind the Cirque du Soleil show Dralion, and this creation earned him an Emmy in 2001, awarded by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for "Outstanding Costumes for a Variety or Music Program." His association with Cirque du Soleil continued in 2004 when he designed the costumes for the opening ceremonies of the XIth FINA World Championships in Montreal.

    In his career, François Barbeau has designed costumes for hundreds of plays, ballets, and operas presented in Canada, the United States, France, Switzerland, and Israel. He has also directed over fifty plays in Montreal and Toronto since 1984. In 1987, he created the costumes for the opera The Rake's Progress directed by Robert Lepage and presented at the Monnaie theatre in Brussels, Belgium.

    François Barbeau was the official costume designer at the Théâtre du Rideau Vert in Montreal for many years. He also works regularly, as costume designer or director, with many other major companies in Montreal, including the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde, the Nouvelle Compagnie Théâtrale, Quat'Sous, the Centaur, the Compagnie Jean-Duceppe, and the Théâtre d'Aujourd'hui, as well as the National Arts Centre in Ottawa.

    He features, as costume designer or artistic director, in the credits of dozens of Quebec films and television programs. His talent is recognized by French directors as well: Louis Malle called on him for Atlantic City and he worked with Gérard Depardieu on Tartuffe. In 2004, he created the costumes for Jean Beaudin's feature film Nouvelle-France, for which he received the Jutra award for "Best Costumes."

    From 1962 to 1987, François Barbeau also played a key role in training the new generation, as a teacher at the National Theatre School of Canada and then as director of the school's Scenography Program. His emulators include Dominique Lemieux, Michel Crête and Stéphane Roy, all designers at Cirque du Soleil.

    In 2000, François Barbeau received the Order of Canada, the country's highest distinction. His lifetime achievement has also been recognized with an honorary Masque from the Académie québécoise du théâtre, the Governor General's Performing Arts Award, and the Prix Victor-Morin of the Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste of Montreal. In 2007, the Université du Québec à Montréal granted him an honorary doctorate for his outstanding contribution to the improvement of performing arts and culture in Quebec.

    He has been awarded abundant other prizes and distinctions in the fields of theatre, film, and television.

    François Barbeau used highly unusual reflective materials in his costumes to capture the essence of the characters that evolve in the icy and frosty realm of Wintuk. Under his watchful eye, Cirque du Soleil's costume department turned into a full-fledged research lab for many months. "I wanted to move out of familiar waters with Wintuk, particularly in the area of materials and textiles," he notes.

    François Barbeau was born in Montreal.

  • Stéphane Roy

    Set Designer

    A graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada, Stéphane Roy has worked as both a set designer and artistic director on over 100 productions in Montreal and abroad. While mainly active in theatre and dance, he has also worked in film, television, advertising and variety shows.

    Over the years Stéphane’s career has led to close working relationships with a number of directors and arts companies: He created the sets for several plays presented at Espace Go and the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde in Montreal and since 1990 he has designed sets for dance productions by such internationally-acclaimed dance troupes as La La La Human Steps and O Vertigo.

    Given that professional background, plus an architect father, a mother active in theatre and a unique social and artistic approach to performance space, it was perhaps inevitable that Stéphane would gravitate toward Cirque du Soleil, a relationship that began with the creation of Dralion, and continued with Varekai, Zumanity, KOOZA and now, Zarkana.

    Since 2011, Stéphane has been one of three artists in residence appointed by the Montreal Nature Museums group to create organic links between the city’s four natural science museums. He also designed The Warrior Emperor and China’s Terra Cotta Army exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

    His achievements have earned him many awards and honors, including being named Revelation of the Year, All Categories Combined, by the Association Québécoise des Critiques de Théâtre in 1989. In 1992, the same association honored him with the award for best set design. His talent has also been recognized by the Conseil des Arts de la Communauté Urbaine de Montréal, the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television and the Académie Québécoise du Théâtre.

    "In the lyrical, fantastic world of Zarkana, the setting, an abandoned decrepit theatre, is a character in its own right,” says Stéphane Roy. “The walls breathe, move and sing. In terms of aesthetics, we are at the beginning of the last century, between 1910 and 1930, midway between Gaudí, Klimt and Art Nouveau. The organic shapes are a nod to the master French glassmaker and jeweler René Lalique."

    Stéphane Roy lives in Montreal.

    Lighting Designer

    In directing the lighting for the show KÀ, Luc Lafortune is contributing to his twelfth creation with Cirque du Soleil. He has been associated with Cirque du Soleil since its beginnings in 1984. That year, he was hired as a lighting technician backstage. The following year, he was at the lighting control booth for the young troupe's eight-month tour. In 1986, he became the lighting designer.

Many other internationally successful artists and groups have called upon his talents. Since 1996, he has worked with, among others, No Doubt, The Eagles, Gipsy Kings and Swiss circus Salto Natale.

    Luc Lafortune studied theatre production at Concordia University in Montreal . He was originally interested in set design. "One day, during rehearsal, I discovered the ability of light to redefine a space, to make a strong contribution to the image and spirit of a show," he says. The experience inspired a passion that still permeates his work today.

    The excellence of his work has garnered him many awards. In 1992, his lighting design for the show Saltimbanco earned him a Drama-Logue Theater Award, given by critics from the California-based theatre magazine of that name. In 1994, he was chosen as designer of the year by the magazine Lighting Dimensions International (LDI). In 1997, the Martin Professionals show The Atomic Lounge, for which Luc Lafortune was artistic director, won the LDI for best light show. In 1998, he took an Entertainment Design Award for his lighting design for the show "O".

    Luc Lafortune is regularly invited as a speaker to share his knowledge and thoughts with students and professionals all over the world.
