Quidam

"Quidam "——無名的路人、躊躇徘徊於街角的孤獨形影、轉瞬即逝的行人——他可以是任何一個人,任何一個來到、離去、在這個平凡至極的社會中生活的凡人,也可以是沈默大眾中的一員,或是置身於我們當中吶喊、歌唱並夢想的人。這就是太陽劇團引以為傲的"Quidam "。

一個七竅生煙的年輕女孩,她已經看過一切可看的,世界失去了所有的意義。憤怒使她的小小世界支離破碎,而後她發現自己身在 "Quidam" 的宇宙。她擁有了快樂的同伴,同時卻也遇到了另一個企圖以奇幻、不安以及恐懼引誘她的神祕人物。

Quidam - 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)。

  • Franco Dragone

    Director

    A good many of Cirque du Soleil's creations bear the stamp of Franco Dragone's poetic and social vision. Between 1985 and 1998, Dragone directed no fewer than 10 productions: Cirque du Soleil (1985), La magie continue (1986), We Reinvent the Circus (1987), Nouvelle expérience (1990), Saltimbanco (1992), Mystère (1993) Alegría (1994), Quidam (1996), La Nouba and "O" (1998).

  • 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。

  • Michel Crête

    Set Designer

    From 1990 to 1998, the environments for all of Cirque du Soleil's productions sprang from Michel Crête's imagination: he was the one responsible for the scenography of Nouvelle Expérience, Fascination, Saltimbanco, Mystère, Alegría, Quidam, "O", and La Nouba. He also had a hand in designing the three theatres that house Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas and Orlando. In 1998, Michel Crête received the Entertainment Design "Production of the Year" award for "O".

    Michel Crête came to Cirque du Soleil in 1986 as costume designer for the show We Reinvent the Circus. His creations for that show, which was also recorded for television, won him a Gémeaux and a Gemini (awards recognizing the work of television artisans in Canada) for best costumes for a variety show.

    After graduating from the Scenography Program at the National Theatre School of Canada in 1984, Michel Crête quickly became one of the most sought-after theatre set designers in Montreal. Between 1985 and 1991, he designed costumes and sets for nearly forty plays, working with renowned directors and rising stars on the Quebec theatre scene. Three times in a row, from 1989 to 1991, Montreal's Théâtre du Nouveau Monde awarded him its Prix Gascon-Roux for best set design.

    In 2001, he designed the big top and created the set for Cheval, a production of the Cheval-Théâtre company founded by Gilles Ste-Croix.

  • Dominique Lemieux

    戲服設計師

    1989 至 1998 年間,Dominique 為太陽劇團製作的所有項目設計服飾。每個劇目均展 現其與眾不同的特色,包括1 989 年的《We Reinvent the Circus》、1990 年的《Nouvelle Expérience》、1992 年的《歡躍之旅》(Saltimbanco)、1993 年的《神秘境界》(Mystère)、 1994 年的《飛躍之旅》(Alegria)、1996 年的《奇幻之旅》(Quidam)、1998年的《“O”》及 《夢幻嘉年華》(La Nouba),以及 2005 年的《歡宴人生》(Corteo)。

    作為戲服設計師,Dominique 的工作絕對不僅是為表演者縫製衣服。她的設計對於創造太 陽劇團各個精彩劇目的不同角色,有著舉足輕重的作用。

    Dominique 憑著其專業眼光,將各種顏色、圖案與布料巧妙結合,縫製成為別出心裁、令 人讚嘆的戲服。她對質料的選擇並非純粹基於美觀考慮,而是會顧及表演者的需要,因 而會注意布料會否令皮膚不適,會否容易磨損,是否耐火或防水。

    Dominique 對於繪畫的熱愛在小時候已顯露出來,亦令她決定在康哥迪亞大學(Concordia University)修讀藝術系。畢業後,她成為藝術設計師及兒童書籍插畫師。其後,她在加拿 大國家戲劇學院(NTS)報讀場景設計課程,選修繪畫及服裝設計更令其事業有了全新方 向。

    1986 至 1988 年,她成為蒙特利爾頂級戲服設計師 François Barbeau 的助手,同時任教於 加拿大國家戲劇學院。在此期間,她設計的作品在全市各大舞台上相繼亮相,令魁北克 省各地劇院的眾多導演爭相要求與她合作。

    為了創製澳門表演項目《MACAU》所需戲服,Dominique 試圖帶出多元文化的特質。她 解釋道:「我的創作靈感來自大世界中各個城市的居民 。在這個多民族融和的現代化都 市,出現了一種嶄新的文化,透過現今年青人的衣著造型具體反映。《MACAU》的戲服 正是展現各類民族文化兼收並蓄的獨特面貌。」

    Dominique 於 1957 年在蒙特利爾出生。

  • 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.

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 Bergeron

    Sound Designer

    François Bergeron has been designing sound for Cirque du Soleil for more than 20 years. His creations (Nouvelle Expérience, Saltimbanco, Quidam, "O", La Nouba, Varekai and ZED) have toured the world, earning him multiple awards, including "Sound Designer of the Year,” for multimedia facilities at the Nike flagship store in New York and Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam. He was part of the creation team that won a THEA Award for “O” in Las Vegas.

    Since moving to Los Angeles in 1993, François has designed the sound for numerous variety shows, plays, musicals, theme parks and museum experiences. He took part in the creation of the Tokyo DisneySea theme park and Templo del Fuego (Universal Studios Port Aventura in Spain), an assignment that eventually led to the creation of his own company, Thinkwell Design & Production. François regularly works on projects throughout the US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

    "The soundscape can elicit powerful emotions within a Cirque show,” he says. “It can warn of impending danger, heighten tension or trigger laughter. It is impossible to escape its influence. My challenge as the Sound Designer is to create an atmosphere that conveys the intentions of the director, highlights the music and support the artists."

    “To create the sound environment of IRIS, we used tools and techniques that are poles apart,” he adds. “On the one hand, we designed and installed an advanced sound system. On the other, we took a purely organic approach to create some of the sound effects, using anything we could lay our hands on. It’s a mixture of advanced digital technology and old-school know-how. This is our tribute to the film artisans.”

    François Bergeron was born in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec.
