Music: Cirque du Soleil - Pokoi(Sasha Remix)
PUSHING THE LIMIT OF ARENA PERFORMANCE
Created and directed by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, DELIRIUM is a multifaceted event of unprecedented proportion featuring Cirque du Soleil music remixed. Driven by an urban tribal beat and awe-inspiring visuals, musicians, singers and dancers transform the arena into joyous frenzy.
DELIRIUM is the quest for balance in a world that is increasingly out of sync with reality. It pushes the limit of arena performance through technical magnitude, human introspection and creative prowess.
DELIRIUM is an urban tale, a state-of-the-art mix of music, dance, theatre, and multimedia. Pumped by this re-energized Cirque du Soleil rhythm, DELIRIUM transports audiences into a universe of delirious sensory folly.
TURNING MUSIC INTO MOTION
For the first time in Cirque du Soleil history lyrics have been created for the instrumental tracks and real words integrated in place of invented language, bringing to the music a fresh poetic dimension. And also, for the first time Cirque du Soleil puts musicians and singers center-stage with their music as the driving force of this gigantic event.
In all, 20 of Cirque du Soleil's most memorable musical moments originally created by René Dupéré, Benoît Jutras and Violaine Corradi have been re-mixed by Quebec producer, composer and arranger Francis Collard. The result is a hyper-energizing urban tribal beat that explodes with electronic sounds, percussions and world rhythms.
THE STAGE AND PROJECTIONS
This unique, large-scale event may be the most massive technical production ever created to tour arenas.
540 feet of projections dominate the scene - the equivalent in width of almost four IMAX screens - setting the stage for a colossal multimedia presentation. Images projected range from prerecorded visuals to manipulated live feeds that create interactions between the show and the audience.
DELIRIUM showcases 36 talented and multidisciplinary artists which include 6 musicians, 6 singers, 12 dancers, 9 acrobats and 3 main characters.
To heighten the musical experience, DELIRIUM is infused with acrobatic dances as well as classic Cirque du Soleil feats including aerial, acrosport and hand balancing acts.
Amongst the featured musicians are percussionist brothers El Hadji Fall Diouf and Pape Abdou Karim Diouf of Senegal; keyboardist and band leader Ric'key Pageot; Italian-born percussionist Raffaele Artiglieri; Brazilian Italo-Cuban singer Dessy Di Lauro; Amanda Stott; Chad Oliver and Jennifer Hamady.

Music: Francesca Gagnon - Alegria
Come un lampo di vita
Come un pazzo gridar
Del delittuoso grido
Bella ruggente pena
Come la rabbia di amar
Come un assalto di gioia
I see a spark of life shining
I hear a young minstrel sing
Beautiful roaring scream
Of joy and sorrow,
There is a love in me raging
A joyous, magical feeling
Como la luz de la vida
Como un payaso que grita
Del estupendo grito
De la tristeza loca
Como la rabia de amar
Como un asalto de felicidad
