Lolo Cousins

After having studied at the circus school of Annie Fratellini and the acrobat school « Catch Palace » he soon started his career as an artist. Juggler, acrobat, animal trainer he takes part in a number of artistic adventures in circuses and street theatres: Le Palais des Merveilles (Marvels Palace) by Jules Cordières, the National Circus School of Annie Fratellini and Pierre Etaix, the Grand Celeste Circus, Les Frères Karaques (The Karaques Brothers)… 

In 1985, he takes part in the creation of the famous circus « ARCHAOS » of which he will be an active member during the first four years of the company. He leaves this adventure for more personal reasons than artistic… 

In 1991, with Julot and René he creates « LES COUSINS », a small family enterprise in which the three accomplices revisit the art of clown without denying their circus and street performer origins. One foot in tradition, the other one in renewal, they travel around the world with their programs for about twenty years.

In 2010, Lolo put this collaboration into brackets to start a « one clown show » with his little dog, Bébert, with whom he delights street theatre festivals.

Being also a theatre director, he wrote and ensured the stage direction of «On ne choisit pas sa famille » of « LA FAMILLE MORALLES »

Since 2009, he works in Lyon and its surroundings as a clown in hospitals with the association «DOCTEUR CLOWN ».

In 2013 after 22 years of work with « Les Cousins », Lolo creates his own company to continue his artistic adventures…

The first one will be to help write and set the stage direction of « Tout peut encore s’arranger… même mal ! » (« All can still be settled… even badly! ») with the POL COMPAGNIE.
