SÉBASTIEN WOJDAN

Sébastien Wojdan,
is one of the nine founding members of Galapiat Cirque.

A juggler, musician, versatile circus artist (tightrope, slackwire, acrobatics, knife throwing).

After having trained as a circus artist and a dancer at the School of Circus Arts Balthazar and EPSEDANSE in Montpellier (France), then at the French National School of Circus Arts (Ecole Nationale des Arts du Cirque) in Rosny-Sous-Bois and at the National Center of Circus Arts (Centre National des Arts du Cirque - CNAC) in Châlons-en-Champagne, he co-founded the Galapiat Cirque company producing the show Risque ZérO two years later.

His first solo performance Marathon, which premiered in January 2013, has been touring since, though on a slower cadence lately giving Sébastien some time to work on his numerous projects.

In October 2018, together with Jonas Seradin, they created L’herbe tendre, a play with singular and plural relationships for two daring actors. In 2021, he will create Blanc as a sequel of Marathon.

His artistic approach relies upon a constant balance between periods of creative research and encounters, designing long-term cultural outreach programmes. In 2014, the Galapiat Cirque collective was invited by Bégard’s psychiatric hospital (Brittany, France) for a three-month in-residency. In 2016, he coordinated a project called Génération Cirque with Tréguier’s nursing home (Brittany, France). In 2017 and 2018, he conducted a project for teenagers, L’âge tendre at Scène Nationale de Calais (France).
