The Cirquons Flex Company was born in 2007 on the island of La Réunion with the meeting of two artists: Virginie Le Flaouter (Montreal National Circus School) and Vincent Maillot (a self-taught artist).
Enriching its work through travelling residencies, Cirquons Flex invents a novel form of circus on this French island in the Indian Ocean, one that also draws on the meeting with neighboring countries from which originated part of the population of this island of diverse origins, and through exchanges with other artistic disciplines.
Resolutely contemporary, the Cirquons Flex company works at creating a circus endemic to La Réunion. A circus in the image of today's La Réunion: an island that has integrated ancestral practices as nourishment, almost despite itself, along with current trends, urban and open to the world around it.
In constant research, Cirquons Flex delivers a hybrid circus calling poetically on circus disciplines, music, dance, text and imagery, as if to better ground the movement in this odd insular partition.
Parallel to its creations, Cirquons Flex accompanies the dynamic of circus arts on La Réunion through the development of pedagogical activites, the implementation of a biennial dedicated to acrobatic movements, and territorial residencies, the accompaniment of artists or the co-animation of the ARAC (Réunion's Association of Circus Arts).
Aided as a Company Regulated Establishment by the DAC of the Réunion, Ministry of Culture, the Réunion region and the town of Saint Denis since 2015, the company is also associated with Le Séchoir (Scène conventionnée de Saint-Leu, La Réunion) and La Cité des Arts.
