The company Entre Nous was born in April 2017 and is composed by five artists of different nationalities all trained in the circus arts. They have travelled, mingled with different cultures, and have become citizens of a world without borders.
Now reunited, the group has chosen a common path and builds a future together. In its artistic process, the company hoped to create collectively, gathered around a passion for the Chinese pole.
Between lightness and gravity’s effect, a story unfolds before the eyes of the spectators. The acrobats evolve in tridimensional space blending acrobatics with movement to create a vertical ballet.
Héloïse Bourgeois began acrobatics at the age of five with equestrian vaulting, trampoline and dance in Paris. After college, her 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. Having participated in 13 productions over the course of her twelve years of career, Heloise has created a universe on the edge of dance, theater and contemporary circus.
Mikaël Bres is a circus artist, a dancer and a musician. Originally from Avignon, Mikaël specialized in Chinese pole at ESAC but he stands out as a multidisciplinary artist. Since 2009, he has travelled the world with special events, cabarets and world touring productions. His curiosity and talent lead him to excel in many artistic fields. He works on the Chinese pole as a soloist, in duet and trio. He is dreamy, passionate and he composes his own music. Between trips, creations and compositions, Mikaël’s life is very inspiring.
Constance Bugnon was born in Switzerland and discovered circus at a very young age. At 15, she joined the professional circus school of Quebec, where she specialized in Chinese pole. After her graduation, she participated in founding« Collectif A Sens Unique”, toured with Starlight and received the “Best Performance” award at the Mongolian Circus Festival. Through her various experiences in circus, dance, performance, Constance is particularly interested in the junction of scenic modes of expression.
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.

He is a multidisciplinary artist, equally attracted to theater and dance, and has worked and travelled with renowned circus companies such as “La Arena”, “Cirque du Soleil” and “7 Fingers”.

The attic is an invitation to discover a space frozen in time. A place filled with abandoned objects that whisper a story full of dust and allow us to glimpse into the past of their stories. Five people find themselves in this place in order to sort thoughtthese memories. During this process of dusting, they recollect their illusions, their desires and their forgotten dreams.
The attic evokes a time that fragments us, a time that separates us from what was. It traces a path between what we were and what we can become…

In an open space where nostalgia and human warmth intertwine, five artists from different backgrounds meet and reconnect around three Chinese poles. Complicity, intimacy, laughter and music merge in this show full of love that combines virtuosity and emotion. The 5 artists have developed a soft and emotional choreographic language around the Chinese pole. Acrobatics, dance, theater and music mingle to the point of being one.
