Fiori’s musical footprint, the talents of Cirque Éloize

The sixteenth original creation of Cirque Éloize, a contemporary circus company founded in Montreal in 1993, Serge Fiori, Seul Ensemble offers spectators a visual and audio experience where acrobatics blends with music.

The former leader of the legendary group Harmonium, Serge Fiori builds on his creative approach, revisiting several songs in collaboration with Louis-Jean Cormier and Alex McMahon. Together, they have reinvented a new, unique and modern sound from the original tracks, now paired with Cirque Éloize’s particular artistry.

Mixing poetic choreographies and acrobatic performances (trapeze, Cyr wheel, teeterboard, aerial robe, hand to hand, contortion, etc.) staged by director Benoit Landry, the artists create fluid imagery for each song.

Solotech’s unrivalled professional touch

As an audiovisual specialist aware of the circus’ unique needs and constraints, Solotech was selected to provide audio, lighting and rigging solutions and services for Serge Fiori, Seul Ensemble. In addition to handling the entire rigging system, the Solotech teams provided and installed L-Acoustics and Meyer Sound speaker systems, as well as Clay Paky Scenius Unico wash lights and GLP LED bars.

Robert Toméo, Vice-President, Events and Corporate Sector at Solotech, notes that it wasn’t without challenges: “The installation deadlines were tight; it required real organization! Our teams have worked hard on this project, so witnessing the success of the show is the best reward ever. One thing’s for sure, at Solotech, we’re really driven by the passion to make artists shine!”

Acclaimed by both audiences and critics, the show premiered at Montreal’s Théâtre St-Denis in the spring of 2019, then was presented at Quebec City’s Le Capitole during the summer, before returning to Montreal by popular demand from September 26 to October 20, 2019.
