La Volte is a circus company that was created in 2018 by Matthieu Gary and Sidney Pin. In 2016, in collaboration with Collectif Porte27 they produced the show Chute! which has been touring since. Following that, the two associates moved to Nantes in order to investigate the art of acrobatics through the production of shows / lectures, performance art as well as the organisation of workshops, for non-professional audiences for example.

Matthieu Gary

Born an acrobat, to a pedestrian mother and father.
He studied at the Center of Circus Arts, Balthazar in Montpellier (France) before graduating from the French National Center of Circus Arts (Centre National des Arts du Cirque) in 2009, thus nourishing himself with various scenic experiences. He is a founding member of the collective Porte27 with Vasil Tasevski and Marion Collé, with whom he produced Mingus, Mingus, Mingus, Mingus, Mingus in 2011 and Issue01 in 2012. He has performed for Arpad Schilling (The Party, 2014), Kitsou Dubois (Sous le Vertige, 2011), Julie Bérès (Lendemains de fête, 2013), Guy Alloucherie (Veillées, 2011), Marc Vittecoq (La transmission du savoir, 2013), Galapiat Cirque (role reprisal in Risque ZérO, 2012), Les Colporteurs (role reprisal in Le Bal des intouchables, 2013-14), Nikolaus (GIRC-plus petit cirque du monde, 2015).
He cultivates a hybrid language combining circus and dance skills while being particularly keen on falling, a source of great amusement for him.

Sidney Pin

After a difficult childhood, Sidney won his first golden banana distinction in 1993 at the Center of Circus Arts, Balthazar in Montpellier (France). A fervent enthusiast of autobiographies written in the third person, he graduated from the school of circus arts in Stockholm in 2011. He co-created the company La Meute in 2009, a collective of acrobats who use propulsion engines and banquine. He has never worked with famous French actor Jean Dujardin, neither did he direct the latest production of the National Ballet of China. Nevertheless, he is a versatile acrobat and has a keen admiration for the absurd gesture.
