Yes! In the capital, Cirque du Soleil has arrived again. Though March 8 and is considered an international weekends, and in the show involved employees in 19 countries, but Du Soleil this does not seem to know. Even in this day of all the women's team will prepare for the performance. Let's look at this amazing process, and we are.
This charming girl - light technician Jessica Fabo. Carbine on her jeans - not a fashion accessory.
Jessica just three jobs. One for remote control and two under roof, away from the top of the circle.
Before the show she has to, securing insurance from the floor to the audience to climb up the "rope" ladder.
Seeing the video "Rise up", Yves Larock, I thought that in addition to the guys in the video, so jump rope, no one knows how. How wrong I was!
Tour director Claire O'Connell, in spite of the simple-reality tour, always wears a dress and heels. The most that struck this man circus in Russia - our girls, manages to move on the ice in high heels.
Marisa West - stage-manager, the person responsible for ensuring that all took place on the stage on time and without pads. During rehearsals was ready equipment and technology, and on the show - to before the time no one rushed to the scene, do not forget and not confused props. It turns out that it is taught in the university. Marisa completed an appropriate course in Canada and has 10 years of experience in the profession, 3, 5 years - in the Cirque du Soleil.
On their monitors she sees all the corners and all the actors of the show. Including those who have to go out next to the arena. In case of any delay may give the command to adjust the sound at the beginning of the number so that the hall will not notice
Marilou Gagné works in Cirque du Soleil is also almost 10 years. Hatter began in the studio headquarters in Montreal, and a few years ago drove away with the show Dralion. Mainly engaged in hats and other headgear. Now she tells enthusiastically about the cap Oceans - a cross-cutting characters in the show, which represents the element of water. Tara Catherine Pandey who plays Ocean, specializes in Central Asian dance and writing a thesis about their history and ascribe to them therapeutic effect. You've seen it on the very first photo.
The show Dralion about 3,000 items of costumes, including shoes, hats, accessories and other items. To create them, about 5000 meters of fabric were used. And every year a thousand spent on upgrading and replacing of costumes. About 300 pairs of shoes repaired and stained by hand at the beginning of the tour the show in a particular city.
Colin Creighton - chief therapist. It helps artists and employees in the event of injuries, following the work of physicians, assisting in the rehabilitation and recovery. As well as teaching, and sees to it that did not accumulate minor injuries and problems that can lead to big trouble. In each city she hires local masseurs and controls them.
About one employee in a skirt it is impossible not to mention - Canadian Gary Ferguson. He worked as a carpenter. On his kilt there are plenty of pockets for hammers and screwdrivers. He parted with him only in one case, when you have to climb ladders. Then he was forced to wear pants. But once down, he immediately changes clothes back.
