CIRQUE HIRSUTE - BIOGRAPHY
Cirque Hirsute was created in 2006 by Mathilde Sebald and Damien Gaumet who are aerial artists trained at the higher education school of Circus Art in Brussels.
The company settled in the city of Die in the Rhône Alpes region and started developing atypical approaches to creativity by mixing traditional circus practices with a contemporary circus narrative based on humour and poetry. Aside from work on character development, the company focuses on new circus challenges. Scenes are also guided by the use of unusual objects and apparatus, new, old or long forgotten.
The Cirque Hirsute have toured throughout Europe since 2006 performing in both outdoor and indoor festivals

MATHILDE SEBALD & DAMIEN GAUMET
Mathilde Sebald and Damien Gaumet are acrobats "keys to everything" formed at ESAC, the Superior School of Circus Arts of Brussels, where they met. Together in life and on stage, they have devoted themselves almost exclusively to their company, Cirque Hirsute since its creation in 2006.
Trapeze washington, aerial frame, trapeze, straps, flying rope, wheel cyr or German wheel are all techniques that they have been brought to control over the years. Today they took the part of inventing their own structure / tackles / sceno, like the Butors mill or the Trebuchet of the eye of the cyclone.
For 3 years, Damien has been the exclusive ambassador of Inmotion France, the largest gyro distributor in France.
