Our approach

Spread the Madness! We want to challenge you! Not only in the tricks, but also in taking the good amount of risk! Carry each other, jump on each other, throw each other and most important trust each other! 

We gonna clean up the basics, work loads on tempos and progressions towards more complex tricks. The autumn edition is focused on working with the duo partner you sign up together and achieve together the goals you define together.

We create space to work on an existing or new act, which gets presented on the last day.The idea is to give you tools how to continue working without a teacher or lunge.

Perry Rudolph

partner acrobatics

Perry always wanted to move. As a kid his grandmother asked him often if he could go to bed like a normal person, he refused while doing a roll into the bed… So it was obvious that he became a circus artist. Therefore he went to several circus schools (Die Etage Berlin, ACaPA Tilburg, Le Lido Toulouse). Nowadays he is performing with Kaaos Kaamos and teaching at Die Etage.

Francesco

Francesco Procopio
