The daring young woman on the flying trapeze, Lorraine Desmarais, is a Quebec
writer, actress and choregrapher, who performs a spectacular aerial act.
The Double- Faced people seen in the opening of the show have covered the stage in a
white cloth - shutting off the ring to the world. More importantly, however, this cloth
and the way the act begins leaves the impression we're witnessing a birth. The cloth sheath
then becomes the womb of the earth and from it, Lorraine Desmarais, a Québec writer, actress
and choreographer, is born. The rest of the performance is a dazzling display of aerial
acrobatics, but I can't help but place that aside to the acts unique introduction.
