Agathe and Adrien
Graduated from the Circus school of Québec in 2018, our duo ''Agathe & Adrien'', works at the edge of the dance, the circus, and the theater/performing arts. This multidisciplinarity allows us to develop a unique circus vocabulary.
With our numbers of hand to hand and icarian games, we create a sensible space between us and the public. A space of simple contemplation where the choreographies build themselves around the tension between tenderness and violence, trust and letting go.
Using our work experiences with the 7 Fingers, Cirque Éloize, our European tours and numerous circus festivals of which we took part, we are finally releasing our first duo show, N.Ormes.
Graduated from the Circus School of Quebec, Adrien Malette-Chénier specializes in hand to hand and juggling. With his duo ''Agathe and Adrien'', he has participated in multiple festivals in Quebec, such as Montréal Complètement Cirque, Berlin circus Festival, and many more. With the same duo, he participated in the original creation of Eden, a show by Variete Wolrdwide, in Miami. Between circus, dance and performing arts, Adrien orients his practice towards the research in contemporary circus.
Agathe began circus at a very young age in France, her country of birth. Her first encounter with contemporary circus came when she was fourteen years old, when she was accepted to the École Nationale de Cirque de Châtellerault. There, she specialized in Washington trapeze. Later, in August 2014, Agathe packed her suitcase and left for Québec to undertake
the professional program at the École de Cirque de Québec. Here, she met Adrien.
Nowadays, Agathe is a hand-to- hand and icarian games flyer.
