A graduate of the Centre national des arts du cirque, where he now teaches, and the recipient of prestigious international awards, Nikolaus first joined Archaos and the cirque Baroque, before creating his own shows and founding the Pré-O-Coupé company with Ivika Meister in 1998. Halfway between juggling and theatre, his plays focus on laughter, to disarm despair and rearm vitality.
