Antoine discovered the artistic world at an early age through the medium of contemporary dance. He curiously explores the possibilities of movement that his body can offer him while considering the stage as his playground.
At six years old he dreamed of becoming a circus artist and began taking classes in theatre and fine arts alongside his dance training. Antoine moved to Paris and began his circus training at the Italo Medini Circus School where he started performing contortion and hula hoop acts at the age of 9. His first experiences in the circus ring made him realize his passion for the performing arts.
After completing his secondary studies at the National Circus School of Châtellerault (France) — where he started developing his technique in aerial silks and straps — he joined the National Circus School of Montréal (ENC) to further specialize in aerial silks, along with hula hoops and aerial straps.
He strives to be a versatile artist and also aims to link dance with the circus arts. At the same time, Antoine is very interested in the skills that surround his practice such as costume design, sewing, makeup and visual arts.
Graduate from the National Circus School of Montreal in June 2020, Antoine aspires to share his work with audiences around the world.
DEMO, complete act on request
He stands straight, determined, he walks, he follows the rhythm, he follows the codes, he takes part in this normalized and fast society that continues to accelerate.
A powerful wave rises slowly and takes him away. Submerged, the absence of gravity opens a moment suspended in time, the armor falls and he can then rise.
His senses awaken, he grabs the storm that is offered to him. He reveals and discovers, layer after layer, until he's left to himself, faced with his weaknesses, his vulnerability.
This aerial silks act addresses the themes of freedom and hope.
