Cirque du Soleil Quidam? What gives?
Cirque du Soleil (Circus of the Sun), as we all know, is a private company in the entertainment industry. Founded by Guy Laliberté and Daniel Gauthier (former street performers) in 1984, the company is now very well-known and certainly produces one of the most-artistic circus shows out there. The show produced by Cirque du Soleil can be described as theatrical – no doubt about it. It’s your modern circus alright. Their shows were not categorized as “contemporary circus” for nothing. Their shows really beam with artwork only seen in theaters and circus. What a great mix, let me tell you that.
Cirque du Soleil Quidam is one of their stage shows which premiered in 1996. Quidam is actually the 9th but not the last show ever produced by the entertainment company. The show was first seen in Montreal as a big top show but it was converted as an “arena-type” of show in 2010 for its tour. Other shows produced by Cirque du Soleil were ‘Le Grand Tour du Cirque du Soleil’, ‘Le Cirque Réinventé’, ‘Saltimbanco’, ‘Alegría’, ‘O’, ‘Varekai’, ‘Dralion’, ‘Zumanity’, ‘Corteo’, ‘Delirium’, ‘Love’, ‘Zaia’, ‘Zed’, and ‘Criss Angel Believe’ just to name a few.
Cirque du Soleil Quidam’s story starts with a young girl named ‘Zoe’. She is definitely bored – her parents ignore her most of the time and are very distant. Naturally, Zoe will feel a void living this kind of life. So she seeks for something… something that will fill that void. Well, she is in luck as she will be discovering the world of Quidam soon. The world of Quidam is an imaginary world full of different wonderful characters, which in this case, will encourage Zoe to “free her soul”. Quidam is actually one of the characters – the featured character. This character / world is definitely one of a kind – it is where dreams happens. It is a mirror of “everyone” and “no one” at the same time. It really is exciting!
The characters of the show include Zoe, Father, Mother, The Target, John, Boum Boum, The Aviator and The Clown just to name a few.
Did you know? That the production of Cirque du Soleil Quidam has around 250 costumes… 200 to 300 pairs of shoes … and 500 costume accessories? Whoooaah! That’s one big production right there! The costumes in Cirque du Soleil Quidam are a combination of everyday clothing and a touch of acrobatic-arts-kind-of-clothes.
The show really is something. Starting from the set design that illustrates the giant arch made of 5 all-aluminum rails and has a total length of 120 feet to the stage floor which is made of aluminum decks. The floor also is equipped with a rubber type mat. The rubber actually is a medium to create wonderful visual effects.
Cirque du Soleil Quidam (showing at Cedar Park Center) is currently directed by ‘Franco Dragone’ – a well-known theatre director. For the artistic guide of the show, Gilles Ste-croix is the one responsible. The lovely set is actually designed by the wonderful set designer, Michel Crete. The creative costumes are designed by the ever beautiful Dominique Lemieux. The musical direction is currently being handled by composer Benoit Jutras. And of course, the imaginative and one of a kind choreography is being lead by Debra Brown – a former gymnast turned dance choreographer.
