Duo André Leo was founded in 2012 when Jean-Baptiste André & Robin Leo met at Ecole Supérieure des Arts du Cirque [ESAC] in Brussels. The wish to explore new possibilities with their common apparatus, the Cyr Wheel, led them to create a duo.
Together, they took part in the Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain in Paris where they won the bronze medal, Young Stage Festival in Basel where they took silver, as well as a Cirque Monti tour, in addition to participating in many other galas and events in Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Poland & Japan.
After more than 600 shows of the same short act, they developped the desire to create a longer piece that would push their research with the Cyr Wheel further, while also incorporating other circus disciplines (acrobatics, lifts, …).
These are the origins of 125BPM.
