    Gold Coast Bulletin Catches Up With Daniel Crispin

    WHEN Daniel Crispin has time off, he spends it in Tugun taking in the sunrise on his longboard. For the most part though, he’s a high-flying circus extraordinaire, with everything from performing at Madonna’s house to a Tim Winton film on his resume. We catch up with the homegrown star of Cirque du Soleil’s new spectacle, Toruk.

  • REVIEW /// “VOLTA almost undone by a vague narrative”

    REVIEW /// “VOLTA almost undone by a vague narrative”

    The latest Cirque du Soleil show has one of those vaguely suggestive, peripatetic titles: Volta. But it could just as easily have been called It Gets Better. That’s the intended spirit behind the lavish, scattered show, which feels like equal parts bullying parable, Hunger Games homage and Project Runway challenge.

    REVIEW /// “Wrong kind of retro undermines VOLTA”

    As its title suggests, Cirque du Soleil’s latest touring extravaganza is full of youthful, technology-infused energy. As a full entertainment package it’s uneven, a complicated narrative concept bogging down its greatest asset: a sequence of circus acts as awe-inspiring and skilful as we have come to expect from this billion-dollar company.

    We’re Off and Running, Part 5:
    Nouvelle Expérience, Part 2 (1991)

    A few weeks ago, as I was flipping through a few classic Cirque du Soleil programme books (as is my wont), I was happily caught off-guard by a brief history of the company that it had written about itself in Saltimbanco’s original European Tour programme, published sometime in 1996. Not because the historia was in […]

    The Fondation du Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal has, again, given 45 degrees the design and production of their prestigious annual fund raising event, the Bal du MAC.

    Montreal Gazette: “Cirque Previews CRYSTAL”

    The new show, Crystal, is the Cirque’s first-ever ice show, but the creators went to great lengths on Tuesday to underline that it is anything but a traditional skating show à la Disney on Ice. Local journalists were given a sneak preview of Crystal at the JC Perreault sports complex in St-Roch-de-l’Achigan in the Lanaudière region, about an hour from Montreal.

    Cirque du Soleil unveiled today a sneak peek of Crystal, its very first show fusing circus arts and the world of ice. For the occasion, a preview of this 42nd production was presented with a group number mixing acrobatic disciplines and skating figures, a high-octane romp on ramps where extreme skaters perform crazy flips and jumps at breakneck speed as well as a poetic pas de deux on aerial straps that completely blurs the boundary between ice and sky.
