THE COLLECTIVE

our story

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.

THE ARTISTS

who we are

Héloïse Bourgeois
Heloise Bourgeois began acrobatics at the age of five with equestrian vaulting, trampoline and dance in Paris. After college, 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.
Matias Plaul
Matías Plaul, formerly a soccer and martial arts enthusiast, he started circus at the age of 20 in Buenos Aires. 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 “ les 7 Doigts de la Main”. He has participated in more than 2000 shows in his career and has toured the world several times. Matias is a director, acrobat, dancer, actor and teacher.
Constance Bugnon
Constance is a multi-talented circus artist. After graduating from the Circus School of Quebec in 2014, she continued her journey in Europe, where she joined Company Idem for the creation of « Control », a contemporary dance piece. She has been collaborating since 2016 with Compagnie Ici’Bas, as a creator and performer on the shows « Lonely are the Lonely Roads » and « Homonolith ». In 2017, she joined the Chinese pole Collective Entre Nous for the creation of their show, « Le Grenier » and « Entre Nous…». Through these different experiences in circus and dance, Constance is particularly interested in the fusion of contemporary arts.
Jeremías Faganel
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.
Mathias Reymond
Mathias Reymond of Switzerland graduated from in 2012 the École de cirque de Quebec, specializing in Chinese pole and Icarian games. After school, he contributed to the creation of the collective A Sens Unique, and went on to collaborate with “Cirque du Soleil”, “Robert Lepage” and “GOP”. In 2015 he co-founded his company “Ici’bas”, which combines dance, circus and live arts. Hungry for art, he is particularly interested in researching movement, whether in ground acrobatics, partnerships or on the Chinese pole.
David Ayotte
David Ayotte trained Chinese pole at the Circus School of Quebec in Canada. In addition to pole, he also learns Icarian games, juggling and clowning. Since he graduated in 2015, he has worked with “Cirque Éloize”, “Cirque Monti” and “Broadway Variety”. He has taught workshops in Europe and Canada, and performed more than seven pole acts in various cabarets and galas. Thirsty for new experiences, his curiosity and artistic receptivity allows him to push himself outside of his comfort zone during artistic creations. As a circus artist, he grows every day with the collaborations that life brings him.
Sarah Lindermayer
Sarah Lindermayer started to train at the age of seven at a youth circus. As a teenager she was already acting and playing different kinds of music. After high school she moved to Berlin to train at the State Circus School and graduated in 2011 as a tight wire dancer and aerialist. Along with her circus training she always continued taking dance classes, theater workshops and private singing lessons. Since 2015 her new discipline is the chinese pole. Sarah is working around the world in really different shows as an acrobat, actor and singer.

THE SHOWS

what we do

” LE GRENIER ”

(“the attic”)

Show for theater/tent, premiere 05/18

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 through these 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…

THE ACT

” Solar system”

Act for gala, special events, TV show and much more…

“Solar System” is an uncluttered circus act where five artists evolve on three Chinese poles accompanied by music that is at times soft and mesmerizing and at times uplifting and frantic. By supporting, echoing and responding to each other, they accomplish vertical falls and vertiginous stunts. Inspired by the timeless and silent dance of celestial bodies, they orbit around their Chinese poles, which push them to defy gravity together as one.
