Matias Pilet



Matias Pilet began acrobatics and theatre work in his teens, and went on to attend the local Circus School in Champfleury in Avignon, where he twice won the “Amoureux de la scène” prize at the “Chien qui fume” (a spring board for young artists). He then attended the École Nationale des Arts du Cirque in Rosny-sous-Bois (ENACR), where he specialised in “hand to hand”. He began working on acrobatic and dance lifts with Alexandre Fournier. It was at this time that they met Fabrice Champion with whom they started a project together. Mathias has also taken part in a variety of projects including dancing in video clips and for an NTM concert at the Parc des Princes in 2010.

Matias’ and Alexandre’s work is based on gesticulatory acrobatic movement from which the circus acrobatics leap out with gusto. Their work is intensely close, and incorporates dance movements too.
