On Tuesday night I was dealt with to a terrific program at Cirque du Soleil, TOTEM.
The blue-and-yellow big top has gone back to Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse, and the program remains in one word– AMAZING!
There’s something for the right style fan, foodies, motion picture enthusiasts as well as for the woman who likes to obtain trackside and delight in the races in unwinded design.
The production includes a cast of 46 acrobats, stars, artists and vocalists from 17 nations (Australia, Belarus, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Moldova, Mongolia, Russia, Spain, Ukraine, United Kingdom and the United States).
Not just are they the fittest group going around; they are likewise genuinely multi-talented, needing to get themselves heated up and dressed before every program, in addition to required to do their hair and makeup! Seriously outstanding!
The Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival is a yearly event of style, appeal, service and artistic endeavor for everybody to delight in.
It was my 4th live Cirque du Soleil production and the 2nd program I have viewed which was directed by Robert Lepage (together with Cirque du Soleil, KÀ, which I experienced with my partner at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, in 2012).
Cirque du Soleil continues to amaze and mesmerize the senses on every level, absence is ever, and TOTEM raises the bar in regards to my experience because I likewise had the enjoyment of heading back phase to satisfy a few of the cast and see the fantastic outfits up close.
A real banquet for the senses, the Festival provides the most elegant week-long home entertainment available consisting of the first-rate runway reveals including Australia’s recognized and emerging designers, modern production, charm workshops, market workshops, online forums, live home entertainment and a lot more.
In the opening scene, the marsh is occupied by fish and frogs. Their patterns and colors originated from genuine fish and frogs, the textures of the materials are likewise a close match to the skin of these animals.
Watch out Melbourne; we have a HUGE month ahead of us as far as must-attend elegant occasions are worried!
To recreate such a broad variety of textures, colours and markings discovered in nature, Kym focused on the treatment of materials instead of on the documents themselves: innovative printing strategies, fluorescent pigments, mirror pieces and crystals enabled her to “paint” on canvases as diverse as Lycra and leather, with outcomes that continuously engage with and adjust to the program’s ever-changing lighting.
The Crystal Man– a repeating character (I want to describe as ‘disco ball male’), represents the TOTEM vital force. His stunning outfit (actually) is completely covered with little mirrors and crystals. The glittering mobile mosaic is comprised of about 4,500 reflective parts on a stretch velour leotard.
I’m informed it can use up to 3 hours to obtain prepared (pending the cast member). The function frogs, for instance, are a real artwork– have a look at the gorgeous sketch listed below which the stars try to reproduce before every efficiency.
Outfit designer, Kym Barrett’s preliminary method to the TOTEM styles was rooted in documentary-based truth.
