Paul Warner

is a circus artist and a Danceman.

Role within the collective: creation, counter-balancing, dancer, inventor of scenic devices.
Paul was a child a tad turbulent. His parents decided to channel his energy by proposing to practice gymnastics. Which works pretty much until it's 12 years old. It is the age at which he decides to emancipate himself from this too strict atmosphere to his liking, so as not to spoil his creative youth. He will later recognize that his athletic years have brought him the benefit of developed physical and acrobatic abilities.
Triathlon, Scouting and other maritime activities then beat his Antiwood adolescence to the first class, where he met the circus through the Cie des Reves walkers and decided to devote part of his life to it.
Trapeze of a time, Paul entered the National School of Circus Arts of Rosny-sous-Bois (enact) as a Korean frame bearer. Faced with a specialty too limited to his liking, eight months later he decided to stop this work. So he separates from his thin flyer to turn to the straps. His training led him to the national Centre for the arts of Cirque de Châlons-en-Champagne (NACC) with this new discipline. While having caught up with his technical delay, his body begins to show him signs of early fatigue. Many months of convalescence lead Paul to change his way of working and to approach his movements without aggravating his injury. Through his universes and his character work, he moves closer to the dance, a practice that his painful back allows, and then gradually develops a research on this new sensitive body by dancing. Intuitive builder, passionate about science and chemistry, tinkerer and handyman for a long time, Paul is offered to integrate the "new magic" training of NACC to enable him to incorporate his new know-how for the benefit of his creativity.
He studied at the CND of Angers.

"The work of art is a form, that is, a movement that came to its conclusion: somehow an infinity contained in the finish. Its entirety results from its conclusion and must therefore be considered not as the closure of a static and motionless reality, but as the opening of an infinity that has gathered in a form. »
