Backstage with Cirque du Soleil

Power within Panasonic

Watch as artists from the Cirque du Soleil® shows Corteo™ and LUZIA™ discuss topics concerning energy, performance and environment in an exclusive video series collaboration between Panasonic and Cirque du Soleil.


Panasonic, Official Partner of Cirque du Soleil Touring Shows in Europe and Russia

Originally composed of 20 street performers in 1984, Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group completely reinvented circus arts and went on to become a world leader in live entertainment.

“Circus is a language within itself.”

Not only are power and strength necessary to ace an act, trust in each other is equally important. That's where Panasonic batteries come in for the sound teams on TOTEM™ and Corteo by Cirque du Soleil.

"Panasonic eneloop quality is what we need"

Andres Vasquez, Head of Sound on TOTEM™ by Cirque du Soleil, one of their touring shows, gives insight on the remarkable workflow efficiencies Panasonic batteries achieve in keeping TOTEM sound equipment running smoothly.

Mr. Vasquez explains that eneloop AA cells are primarily used in the performer’s microphones and transmitter packs. Banks of the 8-cell BQ-CC63 Multi-Charger wait to swap the devices’ depleted cells for freshly charged ones after every show, the cycle continuing so equipment is always ready to go. Mr. Vasquez enthuses about “getting incredible life out of the batteries, which are still going strong eight months in.”

The security of eneloop energy is joined by Panasonic Coin Lithium versatility. Built for stable discharge performance in extreme temperatures and environments, the CR2032 supports key electronics in some of the troupe’s guitars.

Mr. Vasquez reflects on a bright future for the Panasonic partnership, envisioning ever-growing battery sustainability to meet Cirque du Soleil’s energy needs.

Panasonic eneloop: “Definitely of superior quality”

“As showbusiness professionals, we are always looking for reliable products. In the very competitive world of rechargeable portable power sources, eneloop is definitely of superior quality. It has been tested time and time again on our tour, and it’s a trustworthy product, no question there. Here, on Corteo, they are mostly used backstage where they provide power for our technicians' headlights and flashlights as well as in some merch display items with exceptional reliability.”
