Rosa Schmidt ( D/PT )
Rosa was born in 1993 in Konstanz, Germany. After her parents moved to Portugal she followed primary and secondary education there until it was time to decide her profession. With 16 years, Rosa discovered a Circus School in Lisbon, made the audition and entered. Since then she has been practicing circus arts.
After 3 years of study at the professional school of circus arts and craft, EPAOE – Chapitô, Rosa continued her circus education at ESAC (École Supérieure des Arts du Cirque) in Brussels, from were she graduated with her own act, « Double Cordes ».
Specialized in aerial ropes with more than 7 years of experience, she developed a high technical level together to her own personal style. On the ground, Rosa performs as a Hand-to-hand and icarian games flyer, together with her partner Nicoló Marzoli. Her work has been strongly influenced by the social aspect, in which she will continue to develop her body language, personal and universal art.
Leila Köckenberger ( D )
Born in 1985, Leila grew in a squat in Berlin-Kreuzberg. When she turned 7years old, Leila joined a youth circus ( Cabuwazi ). In 2008 she attended the Academie for Circus and Performance Art in Tilburg ( NL ) where she developped a new circus discipline : Aerial plastic.
She created compagnie les Triplettes and Cirque du Platzak.
She worked for companies such as the generating company and also with traditional circus. Besides aerial plastic she uses her skill in partner acrobatics, handstand, juggling, unicycle.
Furthermore she plays concertina!
Nicolo Marzoli ( I )
Nicoló started his way as a circus artist in 2009, at Turin Circus School, « Flic Scuola di Circo », when he enters his education by learning the bases of floor-acrobatics, dance, theatre, juggling and partner-acrobatics.
Impassioned by this new world he decides to continue his education at ESAC, Superior School of Circus Arts in Brussels, with an acrobatic trio - “Trio Qualamano” - where he practices Hand to hand and Banquine for three years, developing a personal research around these disciplines.
Since 2016 Nicoló works in duo with Rosa Schmid , performing Hand to hand and Icarian games in many contexts.
As well as with Barolosolo, cirque Eloize, NoFit state etc
Thibault Thibaut ( F )
Thibault spent his early days in a small village of Normandy, deep inland, not the one from "cartes postales", not even one where circus comes... but obviosly, since he is approximately the size of a mandolin, circus stucked to his mind. Following his dream he ended up in ACaPA and later graduated from ESAC as a juggler.
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 collectiv 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 now a fullfiled and happy boy! (and about 2 and a half mandolin high! Instrument he has since learned to play)
Ps : If he looks sad on his picture, that's simply that it was before the creation of LaMule!
