Erwan Choux’s Bio:

Straps and hand to hand are two incredibly versatile disciplines that I specialized in during my circus BA in the UK’s National Centre for Circus Arts. I also have advanced skills in duo trapeze, juggling, and clowning. Originally, I am from Limoges, France and I started circus when I was six by joining a street theatre company called “les enfants terribles” which means “terrible children”, and indeed I was. They grew a passion in me with training in theatre, clown, juggling, acrobatics and acrobalance. They also gave me the tools I needed to become a focused, driven and motivated circus student. I was so passionate about circus that I auditioned for the only secondary (high school) circus school in Europe. I devoted three years there, developing my skills in dance, theatre, acrobalance and teeterboard. Sharing my passion for circus, creativity, the arts and inspiring people to push their preconceived limits is what I love, and live to do.
