Zéphyr, produced in partnership with FLIP Fabrique, is BOP’s first foray into the world of circus. The show is based on a collage of some twenty instrumental pieces drawn from the French Baroque repertoire, with excerpts from works by Jean-Baptiste Lully, André Campra, Marin Marais and Jean-Philippe Rameau. These pieces flow seamlessly into one another, creating a unified performance. Aesthetically, the set design by Carol-Anne Bourgon-Sicard and Geneviève Lizotte evokes both rock concerts and Baroque opera – in the latter case, through the use of suspended clouds texturized by video projections, among other things.
