Cirque du Soleil

Alles begann in Kanada, genauer gesagt in Baie-Saint-Paul, einer Kleinstadt in der Nähe von Quebec. Anfang der Achtziger begann dort eine bunte Truppe von Stelzenläufern, Jongleuren, Tänzern, Feuerschluckern und Musikern, die Straßen unsicher zu machen. Die Kleinkunstgruppe um Gilles Ste-Croix nannte sich „Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul“ (Die Stelzenläufer von Baie-Saint-Paul). Schon damals waren die Einwohner beeindruckt und begeistert von den jungen Künstlern, darunter Guy Laliberté, der spätere Gründer und Leiter des Cirque du Soleil.

 
 
 

Biografie

Jacques Boucher

Sound Designer
KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities,

For over 25 years, Jacques Boucher has been creating sound environments for a number of productions from Quebec and beyond. Jacques also worked as a sound technician for various Quebec artists, including Richard Séguin, Laurence Jalbert, Diane Dufresne and Bruno Pelletier.

He went on to develop an expertise in sound design for musicals such as Dracula (2006) and large-scale events, including the mega-show 2000 voix chantent le monde, presented in Quebec City in 2000, with over 2,300 singers on stage.

In 2008, Jacques was asked to handle the sound for almost every event presented as part of the celebrations for the 400th anniversary of Quebec City.

As Sound Designer and Head of Sound, he designed sound for the Quebec Symphony Orchestra’s performance of the Symphony of a Thousand by Gustav Mahler, The Image Mill by Robert Lepage, for which he designed the impressive sound system spanning 1.2 km, and the special show presented by Cirque du Soleil.

Jacques also works as Sound Designer and Head of Sound for some Cirque du Soleil special events. After TOTEM, Amaluna, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities and JOYÀ, he is taking part in his fifth Cirque du Soleil show with TORUK – The First Flight.
