Between the ages of 15 and 20 years old, I was travelling on the road with my backpack, from British Columbia to Mexico and from New Orleans to Prince Edward Island. As I returned to Quebec, filled with dreams of nomadism, I decide to do circus.

 

From 2012 to 2015, I study at the Circus School of Quebec, where I specialise in Chinese Pole and also learn Icarian Games, Juggling Passing and Clown. At the end of these 3 years, it becomes clear that dance and theater are indissociable from circus, which I believe has the possibility of being something much bigger than a simple demonstration of physical skills.

 

Since I finished scool, I toured with Cirque Éloize, Circus Monti and Broadway Variété. I also gave workshops in Italy and France, performed 7 different chinese pole acts in galas and varietes, did street shows in Quebec City and I continue to learn to this day from each experience.
