Born in Switzerland, Aude Cattin has demonstrated, from a very early age, an exceptional talent for acrobatics, juggling, aerial acts, trapeze numbers, music and literature. She has received a diploma in Literature and Circus Arts from one of the most important circus schools in France, École de Châtellerault, where her unusual capacities and talents were praised by her mentors.
At the age of seventeen, she traveled to Canada and started her studies at the prestigious Quebec Circus School. It is at that crucial moment of her artistic development that she discovered two disciplines that would later become her most impressive strengths: Cyr Wheel and Hat Juggling. She subsequently developed and perfected her skills, to become one of the world’s greatest specialists in those two fields.
Aude Cattin performs regularly with numerous circus companies and also as solo artist, in the United Asia, Canada, Japan, and Europe. In the last few years, she has developed a unique and very personal artistic language, wishing to establish a contemporary approach to circus arts. In addition, music has always occupied a very important role in her shows. As a musician, she frequently performs piano, accordion or trombone in her own circus shows, in addition to incorporating poetry and literature.
Strongly engaged for charitable causes, Aude Cattin has recently performed in various prisons in Germany and Italy, as parts of a collaboration with the Instant Acts Association.
