A “crazy circus company” created by six acrobats, Hoops Désolé combines theatrical games and dance with a swarm of acrobatic leaps, jumps, dives, flips, and tumbles. Their name springs from the team’s signature apparatus, as seen in the hoop diving video above.
The collective is formed by Jacob Grégoire, Gian Nardin, Augustin Thériault, Cameron Clarke, Theddy Nardin, and Santiago Esviza. Some of the team are alums of l’École de Cirque de Québec and Montreal’s Cirque Éloize. Brothers Gian and Theddy have been jumping on beds since they were 5 and 8, and now perform on a teeterboard, as well.
They’ve used the playful acrobatic combinations above to introduce the team in the promotional video below:
