Cirque du Soleil

创始于加拿大魁北克市附近的一个小镇-拜圣保罗。在八十年代早期,有一群各色各样的人游荡在小镇的街道上,有的踩高跷,有的耍把戏,有的跳舞,有的表演吐火,还有的在演奏音乐。他们是 Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul(拜圣保罗的踩高跷者),由 Gilles Ste-Croix 创建的一个街头剧团。这群年轻的表演者给小镇居民留下了深刻的印象并激起了他们浓厚的兴趣,其中就包括 Guy Laliberté,他之后创建了太阳剧团并担任 CEO。



Philippe Aubertin

Acrobatic performance Designer

Inspired by the enthusiasm surrounding the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal, Philippe Aubertin got started in gymnastics at the age of five. At 18 he was invited to join the national junior team but decided to withdraw from competition because of the physical demands that it imposes. Instead, he became coach at the Gymnastics Centre of Montreal, a position he held until 1999. During his tenure, he was certified by the Canadian Association of Coaches.

At the same time, Philippe pursued a university education in athletic training, but the appeal of Cirque du Soleil offered him new horizons.

Cirque's Director of Acrobatic Performance and Coaching, Boris Verkhovsky, hired him in 1999 to train artists at the company’s international headquarters in Montreal.

Philippe joined La Nouba in Florida as a coach, then took up duties in Japan as head coach on the touring show Saltimbanco. In 2004, he returned to Montreal as Cirque' s head coach before joining Corteo on the road for two years.
