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.
Parallel to this, I work on a project called A Sensitive Case which contains mousetrap sculptures, a mousetrap-house and a story about instinct, playfulness and the different faces of the animal human.
