Parc del Forum - September-October 2008
This production of the Cirque du Soleil turns around the imagination of Zoe, a sad young girl to whom her parents give no attention. In her solititude and loneliness she dreams to attempt to escape from her sad world. in her escape she creates the world of Quidam, a man without a head that has an umbrella and a bowler hat. Quidam represents a dual character, carrying positive feelings and resentment that makes confront our dreams with our nightmares, our frailties and our anguish. The word quidam comes from the Latin meaning a certain person, a certain thing, a kind of. Quidam is meant to be a solitary figure lingering on a street corner,a nameless passer-by, one who cries out, sings and dreams within us all.
Quidam was first on stage in Montreal in 1996 for the inauguration of Cirque du Soleil's new head office and training center.The soundtrack was composed by Benoît Jutrás, and was released on 14 January 1997.
