Chinese Pole

French artist Domitil Aillot trained at the internationally renowned Annie Fratellini Circus School in Paris. There he became one third of the critically acclaimed acrobatic trio Les Petits Freres who performed at some of the best venues in Europe including Cirque d’hiver Bouglione in Paris, Apollo Variete in Düsseldorf, Tigerpalast in Frankfurt, and Wintergarten in Berlin.

Called the ”Floating Act” by the European press because of their unique ability to defy gravity, the trio came to the United States 14 years ago to perform with Teatro ZinZanni in three cities, contributing to dozens of shows in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

The trio celebrated their last performance together in Seattle in June 2014 and Domitil continues his performance work as a solo artist working on the Chinese Pole under the tutelage of Mr. Lu Yi, master teacher and Artistic Director of the San Francisco Circus Center. Over the past year, Domitil has been performing in Europe at the Tigerpalast and is excited to be back this winter at ZinZanni.
