A talented multidisciplinary artist, he is credited for having strong imagination and skills on both the artistic and technical aspects of his work. Having worked in theater, movies, television and live entertainment, his wide experience allows him to maximize the performance presented to an audience while always concentrating on the safety of the performers.

BWW Review: Cirque du Soleil's Artistically Explosive VOLTA Celebrates Freedom as the Photo BWW Review: Cirque du Soleil's Artistically Explosive VOLTA Celebrates Freedom as the Ultimate Achievement
by Shari Barrett - Jan 23, 2020

Energetic, urban and contemporary, Cirque du Soleil's VOLTA, written and directed by Bastien Alexandre, with Jean Guibert as the director of creation, is a captivating voyage of discovery that showcases never-before-seen under the Big Top acrobatics in a visually striking world. Driven by a stirring melodic score and inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of street sports, VOLTA is a story of transformation, being true to oneself, fulfilling one's true potential, and recognizing one's own power to make it possible. The production is perhaps the most acrobatic show ever staged by Cirque du Soleil, with acts from around the world offering amazing displays of roller skating, balance, trampoline leaps through windows to rooftop, Double Dutch rope skipping, tumbling, rings, and BMX bicycle flips that challenge gravity.

RIALTO CHATTER: Safety Issues to Postpone SPIDER-MAN Again?
by Rialto Chatter - Nov 4, 2010

According to the NY Times, the Broadway run of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark might be postponed once again; this time, because of safety issues. As reported previously, inspectors from The New York Department of Labor payed a visit to the Foxwoods Theatre to take a look at the flying devices and methods being used. Because they saw only some of the dozens of aerial stunts in the show, delays in the opening are likely. If the Department of Labor approves of the rest of the stunts in the next 10 days, then performances will begin on November 4.
