Chinese Pole, Hula hoop


Since he has become an adult, Thomas has been nothing but disappointment for his mother who saw in him a future "président de la République" , because he chose the Circus. Specialized in the practice of Chinese pole, his life unfolds in the rhythm of ascensions (if not professional, at least spatial) and swirling falls. In 2009, with one Diploma and somehow still four limbs, he left the Superior School of Circus Arts (ESAC) of Brussels, in a trio of Chinese pole acrobats. After a trial by fire with Franco Dragone, he engaged in a solo carreer that led him to join various companies and collectives. Sailing between circus (Archaos, Hurjaruuth Talvisirkus), dance (Company LEG, OSA Mayor Collective), street theater (15Feet6) and even modern opera (The Beggar's Opera by Léo Ferré), Thomas follows a path as varied as it is enriching, which makes him think "Gee, life is beautiful". Today, he climbs, he jumps, he runs, he dances, he sings, he slaughters the repertoire of Mozart with the tuba and when they proposed him to join Poivre Rose, he answers with his immutable motto: «OOOOHH YEAHH !!!
