# CIRCUS // Le Collectif de la Bascule //


Trained at the National Advanced School of Circus Arts in Châlons-en-Champagne (FR), the Collectif was created to follow this simple line « If not everybody goes to circus, ours will go to everybody » and this becomes a reality for the ones who crossi their road. They created in 2012 «Rien n’est moins sûr » (Nothing could be less certain), a off-line and off-roaded circus show. One year later, the show « Quand Quelqu’un Bouge »(When somebody moves), an « under the big top » show is played in many public places. The last Collectif ’s show « Histoires de Blues » (Blues Stories), is a tribute to Afro-American music. Today, ti is more than 150 shows, 640 hours in a van cab, 5000 jumps and 150 000 km driven across the world. The Collectif is composed of Fanny Alvarez, Antoine Guillaume, Marius Ollagnier, Maxime Reydel, Karim Messaoudi and Samira Boukhnous.
