Thibault Gouin spent his early days in a small village of Normandy, not the one from "cartes postales", not even one where circus comes... but obviously, circus stocked to his mind. Following his dream graduated from ESAC (Ecole Supérieure des Arts du Cirque, Bruxelles) specialized in juggling and objects manipulation .
Really fast he had to face reality, circus without caravans, mud and long hours of constructions wasn't for him! Therefore he ( among others! as he also likes collective work!) created le "cirque du Platzak", a raw folk circus company with a full loaded truck, thousands of kilometers and liters of sweat!
But something was still missing : a social aspect giving sense to his art... thanks to LaMule cirque, he is a fulfilled and happy boy!
Leila Köckenberger grew up in a community house in Berlin-Kreuzberg. In 2008 she attended ACaPA (Academie for Circus and Performance Arts in Tilburg, NL ) where she developed a new circus discipline : the aerial plastic.
After her bachelor's degree she toured with her own productions: VACUUM in theatres, as well as the women's trio Triplettes and Cirque du Platzak. She has also created and performed for international dance-theatre-circus productions such as with the Swedish/Belgium company Petri Dish and the generating company, an english one. Besides her solo work on the "Plastic" , she is currently touring her contemporary solo piece "INSIDE".
