Circus artist. A majestic word. At least, this was it for me. At what point can I say, “I’m a circus performer”?
One day in March 2011, I was living in Uruguay, I decided I wanted to live from art. From this moment on, I began to dedicate my whole life to the circus. I had discovered the slackrope a short time ago. I was fascinated of balance. I trained for hours and hours. 2012 I traveled to Brazil, where – in a small circus tent in Bahia – I took classes with a slackrope master. What I learned from him is still essential to my work.
In order to live I juggled at traffic lights, I made fire shows with the company “Ta que arde” and I created a living statue.
But my dream was to do my own street show. Alone. Impossible! Yes?
No! 2014 it was born: My first solo-show with the slackrope.
Since then I have deepened my knowledge about stage presence, interaction with the audience, slackrope walking on stage and the art of placing the audience.
Since then I have performed alone and with different collectives and companies in many parts of the world. On the streets. On events. At festivals. In cabarets. In circus tents. . .
Since then, my stage can be any place. This is the greatest freedom I have ever experienced.
Today I know my school is the doing.
Today-if you ask me-I say “I’m an artist”. Because art with its infinite facets is my life.
