Moving with grace and delicacy, Isabelle Vaudelle becomes one with the
columns of red fabric that supports and cradles her. To haunting music,
contortionist and cloth intertwine, separate and embrace again. The translucent
fabric occasionally hugs the body of the performer, creating a stunning effect
that touches the artist in each of us. This act, which requires strength,
flexibility and agility, won Isabelle the silver medal at the XXIIIe Festival
du cirque de demain in Paris, where she represented Cirque du Soleil.
Isabelle Vaudelle joined the cast of Alegria for the Toronto run only, as
an emergency replacement for the Shoulder-Pole Wire act. Music for Vaudelle's act
was her own, as the act was a late addition to the show's run in that city.
