Cirque du Soleil









Cirque du Soleil

所有的一切,都是從加拿大魁北克市附近的小鎮 Baie-Saint-Paul 開始。在那裏,在 80 年代早期,有一隊充滿特色的樂隊在街頭流浪,踩高蹺,表演雜耍,跳舞,表演噴火和演奏音樂。他們是 Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul(Baie-Saint-Paul 街頭浪人),是一個由 Gilles Ste-Croix 建立的街頭表演團隊。這群年輕的表演者給小鎮的居民留下非常深刻的印象,包括後來成立太陽劇團並出任 CEO 的 Guy Laliberté。



Anne-Séguin Poirier

Props Designer

For the past 10 years, Anne-Séguin Poirier has worked as a set and costume designer for theatre, circus, opera and exhibits.

Since 2005 she has designed sets and props for shows directed by Quebec multimedia creators Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, including the Cirque du Soleil show DELIRIUM, Starmania Opera (a production of the Opéra de Montréal), La Belle et la bête for the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde and Norman, a heartfelt tribute to Canadian filmmaker Norman McLaren for the company 4Dart.

Anne-Séguin designed costumes for stage directors and choreographers Peter James, Gypsy Snider, Shanna Carroll and Lemieux-Pilon. She also designed the props for the Cirque Eloize shows directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, and Quebec director Gilles Maheu’s production of Don Juan. In 2010 she designed costumes for the opening ceremonies of the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games.

IRIS marks the second time Anne-Séguin has worked on a Cirque du Soleil show following DELIRIUM.

“The IRIS props are straight out of a cabinet of curiosities,” she says. “There are found objects, intricate machinery and valuable film props – and they’re all variations on the themes of sound, light and illusion. They tell our own story of the creation of the cinema from the early inventions and machines to the major film studios.”

Anne-Séguin Poirier was born in Montréal.
