Cirque du SoleilTodo comenzó en Baie-Saint-Paul, un pequeño pueblo cerca de Quebec (Canadá). Allí, a comienzos de la década de los ochenta, un grupo de personajes llenos de color deambulaban por las calles subidos en zancas, haciendo malabares, bailando, lanzando fuego por la boca y tocando música. Se trataba de Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul (los zancudos de Baie-Saint-Paul), un grupo de teatro callejero fundado por Gilles Ste-Croix. Los habitantes del pueblo quedaron impresionados por los jóvenes artistas y, entre ellos, se encontraba Guy Laliberté, que posteriormente fundaría y se convertiría en director general del Cirque du Soleil.
Creator and Costume Designer
Thierry Mugler is a French artist who is very well-reputed in the world of fashion and haute couture. He was a professional dancer starting at age 14 at the Opéra du Rhin, and the surpassing of the body and the love of performance are recurring themes in all his work: an accent is placed on the shoulders, women's bodies are flattered, and men's bodies are regarded with the same rigour.
If clothing has been an integral part of Thierry Mugler's life, it was to take it to the next level: over almost thirty years, this born director has created a hundred or so spectacular shows attended by up to 13,000 people, including events at the Zénith, the Budo Kan and the Cirque d'Hiver. The international success of Thierry Mugler perfumes, launched in 1992, serves only to confirm his incredible talent.
Thierry Mugler is also the author of short films, advertising films, photos and music videos. Thierry Mugler's collaboration with the Cirque du Soleil team for Zumanity caused a sensation in the worlds of fashion and show business!
