La Capitale presents Serge Fiori, seul ensemble, Cirque Éloize's newest creation
February 28, 2019 – La Capitale Insurance and Financial Services is pleased to present Cirque Éloize’s newest creation: Serge Fiori, seul ensemble (alone together). This unique musical, visual and acrobatic entertainment event will be presented first to Montreal audiences at the Théâtre St-Denis as of March 6 and then move on to Quebec City, where it will be presented to audiences at the Théâtre Capitole as of June 20.
In this production, directed by Benoit Landry, a succession of pictures will translate into images the creative genius of this famous singer-songwriter. Serge Fiori, seul ensemble combines music and dance with acrobatics (trapeze, aerial rope, hand to hand, contortion, new magic, etc.).
Serge Fiori, seul ensemble features 20 performers: five dancers and 15 acrobats. In this stage production, the former frontman of the legendary folk-rock band Harmonium, continues his creative process by revisiting his own songs, accompanied by Louis-Jean Cormier. These artists are currently working in the studio, going over the classic hits in this huge repertoire and reinventing a new, unique and modern sound from the original soundtracks.
The production, which features timeless Harmonium songs, some of Serge Fiori’s more recent solo numbers and a few unforgettable Fiori-Séguin hits, is a great and grandiose celebration of a one-of-a-kind musician who has left his mark on the Quebec music scene.
“The magic of Cirque Éloize, framed by the musical and poetic universe of Serge Fiori, is a luminous expression of Quebec’s cultural distinctiveness. La Capitale Insurance and Financial Services is proud to contribute to the success of this original production! As a mutual, La Capitale plays an active role in the community by supporting art and culture, which are important elements of Quebec’s social fabric,” said Marie-Josée Guérette, Vice-President of Public Affairs and Corporate Outreach at La Capitale.
Imagine taking a fabulous trip down memory lane listening to the songs of Serge Fiori and seeing acrobats, dancers and artists bringing to life different characters in the universe of Harmonium’s founder.
Imagine magical landscapes. Step into a fantastic world of dreamy sensations, with no set path to follow.
Let yourself float into the adventure, where your thoughts can roam unhindered and where the evening is a celebration of music, love and freedom!!
