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。



Hugo Gargiulo

Acting Coach - Teatro Sunil

Acting Coaches Hugo Gargiulo and Antonio Vergamini come to Corteo from Teatro Sunil, the theater and dance company founded by the show's Director, Daniele Finzi Pasca in Switzerland in 1983.

Motivated by a deep commitment to humanitarian principles, Daniele has placed the tragicomic figure of the clown at the core of Teatro Sunil's productions such as Rituale, Icaro, Aittestás, Visitatio, Te Amo and Tres Tristes Tangos to express a broad range of human experiences and emotions. He has called Sunil's emphasis on sensitivity and the sense of touch "the theatre of caress."

Hugo Gargiulo and Antonio Vergamini have been key members of the Sunil creative team as actors and directors for many years and have been working closely with all the artists of Corteo (including the musicians) to develop their acting skills and introduce them to the world of the clown.

"Our challenge was to bring out the fragile side of the acrobats," says Hugo, "and they are more used to putting the spotlight on their strength."

Working with a large cast has given the two coaches the opportunity to finally realize artistic dreams they have held for a long time. However, many of the artists they are working with have never acted before. "Their lack of experience is a challenge," admits Antonio. "But it also means they are more generous and ready to be open. Above all, our challenge was to bring out the fragile side of the acrobats. We would like each artist to contribute something unique."

Asked to describe the show, Hugo says there will be many dream-like images and a great deal of humanity on stage. "The artists will not be hidden by their makeup or their costumes, they will be presenting themselves to the audience," he adds. "We wanted the audience to see in their faces the children they once were and the old people they will become."

Hugo Gargiulo was born in Uruguay in 1965.
