My creative approach is immersed in interdisciplinarity.

After a decade of performing as a circus artist, I am now focusing on directing, through my own projects aswell as by collaborating as a guest director with the National Circus School and various companies and art schools around the world.

My directing practice has brought me to direct a wide variety of projects, ranging from family oriented circus shows to performative site specific installations. I like humans and non human things. I like to make things groovy, gracious and disturbing and I like to think. 

I co-founded in 2012 the contemporary circus collective Cie du Poivre Rose in Belgium, whose eponymous show has toured Europe, and has played more than 70 performances in 7 countries.


I am currently studying Performance Creation at Concordia University.


A graduate of the National Circus School of Montreal, I have been an aerialist, contortionist and base for Cirque du Soleil, 7 Fingers and Cirque Monti amongst others, in Japan, Europe, North and South America. I have participated in many cabaret productions in Germany (GOP Varieties, Chämaleon) and many independent creations (Gynoides, Fashionata, Nadère Arts Vivants, etc).
