Christie Takes Cirque Du Soleil’s 'Delirium' From Stage to Screen In Theatres Across The U.S.

on August 21, 2008

CYPRESS, CA - Christie, a global leader in visual solutions for entertainment, business and industry, plays a starring role in Cirque du Soleil’s state-of-the-art production, Delirium, the film version of which will be shown on digital screens throughout the United States, August 20-24. Christie, whose Christie Roadster S+20K and Christie Roadie 25K DLP projectors contributed to the spectacular visual presentation of the highly acclaimed stage production, will again “share the stage” in the limited run cinema showcase at leading entertainment venues featuring Christie DLP Cinema® projectors.

Delirium is a state-of-the-art mix of music, gravity-defying athletics, dance, theater and multimedia. Audiences and critics have raved over its dazzling visuals, and the musicians, singers and dancers who transform an arena into what has been frequently described as “joyous frenzy.” Driven by an urban tribal beat, Delirium is “a quest for balance in a world increasingly out of sync with reality.” Created by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, it is directed for film by David Mallet. The film version captures in stunning, razor-sharp high definition the last performance of the London production in 2008.

Christie digital projectors literally shined in the contemporary, high-tech stage production, where innovative lighting was an integral part of the show. Up to 36 performers on 270 square feet of projection space were bathed in more than 200,000 ANSI lumens of brightness from seven Christie Roadie projectors and two Christie Roadster S+20K’s.

“Christie has earned a global reputation for quality and reliability. Delirium, on stage and on digital cinema screens, is a legacy to the powerful experiences that are Cirque du Soleil performances, and demonstrates the ability of Christie projectors to meet the highest standards of excellence,” said Kathryn Cress, vice-president, global and corporate marketing at Christie.
