I was a replacment Stage Manager on DELIRIUM.
DELIRIUM was a touring multimedia stage show by Cirque du Soleil featuring live music, video projections, and performances by acrobats, dancers, musicians.
The production featured remixes of existing Cirque du Soleil music. The show premiered on February 26, 2006 and closed in London on April 20, 2008.
DELIRIUM was the first of Cirque du Soleil's productions designed to be presented in arenas.
The unique stage was set up on the arena floor, bisecting it lengthwise. Its two-sided, raised stage allowed for an alley-theatre-style presentation: the audience sat on both sides of the stage, at times able to look over the central stage to see the spectators on the other side.
Despite the extraordinary complexity and size of the stage, it could be assembled inside an arena in approximately nine hours.
