Naël Jammal
Naël Jammal started circus at the age of 11. He trained at l'Ecole Nationale de Cirque de Châtellerault (France) from 2001 to 2004 and at the world renowned National Circus School of Montreal from 2004 to 2008. After seven years of intense training in circus art, his artistic qualities allow him to create a touching, poetic universe at the frontier of dance, theater and contemporary circus. He was soon noticed by the Montreal company The 7 Fingers for which he performed for many years in shows like Traces, La Vie, PSY and the Tony Awards® winning Pippin the Musicalon Broadway. During his career, Naël had the opportunity to work for the world-leading circus companies such as Cirque Éloize, Cirque du Soleil and most recently for the French company Cirque Le Roux. As an active artist and creator, in parallel to performing on stage, he began a research project in 2016 integrating new technology in Circus Arts, called CirK 2.2. This research, which was made possible thanks to the financial support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, is a sound/movement-based project with the intention of creating a universe where the artist and the circus discipline are an integral part of the musical creation.
