I’m Bert Vanden Berghe, Circus artist.

I work with the human animal. I am searching challenging circumstances, entanglement and ‘the unexpected’.

I studied at the ECB, Ecole de Cirque de Bruxelles and the Circus- and Theatre school CAU, Centro de Artes Urbanas in Granada. Since 2016 I continued training hand balancing and creating at the LIDO, Centre des arts du Cirque and La Grainerie in Toulouse. In fall of 2018, I enjoyed the specialisation  handstand at DOCH, University of Dance and Circus in Stockholm to shape up my hand balancing technique. I work on a broader definition of hand balancing. I have created my personal language in this art form that mixes it with physical theatre & dance.

Currently I’m touring with a project called A Sensitive Case which contains mousetrap sculptures & careful hand balancing. Next to that Tomas Vanderplaetse and I are working on a site-specific collaboration under the name of Extricate.

See you soon,
