David Ayotte

Between the ages of 15 and 20 years old, David travels on the road with his backpack, from British Columbia to Mexico and from New Orleans to Prince Edward Island. As he returns home to Quebec, filled with dreams of nomadism, he decides to do circus.

 

In 2012, he enters the prestigious Circus School of Quebec, where he specialises in Chinese Pole but also learns Icarian Games, Juggling Passing and Clown. At the end of these three years, it becomes clear to him that dance and theater are inseparable from circus which he believes has the possibility and duty of becoming something more than a mere demonstration of physical skills.

 

Since he finished school in 2015, he toured with Cirque du Soleil, Cirque Éloize, Cirque Entre Nous, Circus Monti and Broadway Variété. He also gave several workshops in Europe and Canada, performed seven different chinese pole acts in galas and varietes across the world and continues to learn to this day from each experience.
