After gymnastics, a discipline to which I devoted 20 years of my life, I tried to lead a “normal”, conventional and stable life. After 4 years of inactivity, my body and head called me to order! I could no longer continue to live this way, without touching the Essential. The vague impression of being supernumerary. I have always felt deep inside me the need to express things…

Some friends offered me to audition for the creation of a new show at DisneyLand Paris, “The Lion King and the Rhythms of the Earth“. I was selected after an audition, in particular thanks to my gymnastics fundamentals. Following this news, I resigned from my work for which I felt nothing, and embarked on this adventure, towards the unknown, with infinite variables.

I was very apprehensive, because I had never danced, nor counted the music and even less touched the circus apparatus: aerial straps, bungees, articulated and pendulum masts.

I was fortunate to be surrounded by a very experienced cast, which brought me a lot. It was a fantastic experience! Especially since on this contract I touched the aerial straps, and I knew right away that this was what I wanted to do.

Following this contract, I was tired, exhausted, but now I knew that this was what I wanted to do with my life.

After that, it’s in Canada, and on my straps.

The call of the body and the need to express myself artistically was stronger than the need for a stable and conventional life.
