An artist’s ability to adapt their training to different professional cycles, shows and their physical condition can have a positive impact on their artistic development. In this workshop, warm-ups, strength training and physical preparation are re-examined using new methods and theoretical concepts, with the aim of making physical preparation more dynamic and motivating for hand to hand duos and trios. This workshop allows participants to explore static and dynamic elements and gain a better understanding of technique, biomechanics and safety when practicing this art form.
This workshop is intended for duos and trios of hand to hand artists. Please note that each participant must register individually.
Jérôme le Baut began his career as a street performer before joining Cirque du Soleil’s Saltimbanco in 1999, where he developed different skills (Chinese pole, Russian swing, hand-to-hand, and clown). He went on to perform a hand-to-hand act in Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam for several years. After ten years of touring, Jérôme moved to Montreal where he took the position of hand-to-hand trainer at the National Circus School while also acting as a trainer and acrobatic designer for The 7 Fingers (Psy, Cuisine et confession, Le Murmure du coquelicot), Cirque Éloize (Cirkopolis), and Cirque du Soleil (Luzia, X Land of Fantaisies). Jérôme also founded his own company, Tête en Bas, which accompanies artists and companies in their acrobatic research and training.
