Florent is one of a kind. His awkward tendencies impose a specific challenge for him, influencing his distinct and captivating body language, and earning him the nickname “Gaston Lagaffe”. He accepts this title with a grin, as he dances away with graceful awkwardness, juggling with ease and perfect coordination.
At the age of 17, after realizing his weightlifting career was coming to an end, he decided to give himself completely to circus. Over a period of 5 years, 3 of which were spent at the National Circus School in Montreal, he developed his circus skills, notably juggling, which would become his specialty, and clowning, a skill and passion that he continually nourishes and develops to this day.
These years of work led him to a silver medal and public prize at the 30th “festival mondial du cirque du demain” in 2009. He went on to tour the world for 3 years with the company “The 7 fingers” in the show “PSY”. He is now a founding member the company “Tete d’Enfant", as well as co-director and performer in their first show, “Me, myself and us”.
He continues to perform his solo acts and give workshops in the hopes of contaminating his audience and pupils, spreading his madness upon those who wish it (and maybe even those who don’t!).
