CIRQUE ENTRE NOUS ENTRE NOUS… (FRANCE)
The company Entre Nous was founded in 2017. There are several artists of different nationalities in the company, and all of them are trained in the circus arts. They have travelled, mingled with different cultures, and have become citizens of a world without borders. The artistic creations of the company are the collective work. The common interest within the group is a passion for the Chinese pole.
Héloïse Bourgeois began acrobatics at the age of five with equestrian vaulting, trampoline and dance in Paris. After college, wanderlust led her into the circus world. The Montreal circus school, “Les 7 Doigts de la Main” and her duo with William Underwood gave her the opportunity to travel around the world several times. Specializing in hand to hand and Chinese pole, Heloise received a gold medal at the Cirque de Demain festival, performed in front of the Queen of England and participated in the Closing Ceremony of the Olympic Games of Turin.
David Ayotte trained Chinese pole at the Circus School of Quebec in Canada. In addition to pole, he also learns Icarian games, juggling and clowning. Since he graduated in 2015, he has worked with “Cirque Éloize”, “Cirque Monti” and “Broadway Variety”.
Jeremías Faganel was born in Argentina and began his artistic training in Buenos Aires. He specializes in Chinese pole, swinging pole and Cyr wheel. Gifted by nature, he also touches on aerial disciplines, juggling and acrobatics. He moved to Barcelona in 2010 and collaborates with many European and South American companies. Working with “Cirque du Soleil”, and touring with other shows and cabarets made him a solidly experienced artist.
In the performance “Entre nous…” between lightness and gravity’s effect the story unfolds before the eyes of the spectators. The acrobats move in three-dimensional space blending acrobatics with a dance movement to create a vertical ballet. Complicity, intimacy, laughter and music merge in this show full of love that combines virtuosity and emotion.
