Circus under oxygen

Three elements. Two acrobats on a Chinese pole and that oxygen, the invisible one that is everywhere in the air and yet missing in Jesse’s body.

With the help of his friend, Jesse shows that we don’t stand on fears, but on dreams. Suffering from cystic fibrosis, they evoke the fragility of our lives and the power of hope.

Discovering oneself, learning to help each other, asking for help, learning to find the strength to realize oneself, so many themes approached with sincerity.

A touching and generous show that allows human beings to be human.

Jesse Huygh

Despite being diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of 12, Jesse has always been athletic: gymnastics at the national level, judo, swimming, and circus left little time in his day for other hobbies. After graduating from ESAC (Ecole Supérieure des Arts du Cirque) in Brussels in 2011, where he specialised in Chinese pole, straps, floor acrobatics and acrobatic lifts, he works for various large companies around the world, such as Cirque Eloize, NoFitState CIrcus and Casus. He also works on personal projects, solos and duos. Since 2016, he is one of the founding members of Sous le Manteau Collective, whose first show “MONSTRO” was released in January 2019. Due to health complications in the summer of 2020, Jesse was replaced in this show, allowing him to start a new creation: “À 2 Mètres” brought by ADM vzw. ( Premiered in May 2021). In parallel to this artistic career, he has also been developing pedagogical work since 2011. Jesse is not only involved in professional training: ESAC (Brussels), Académie Fratellini (Paris), Codarts (Rotterdam), ACaPA (Tilburg), ECB (Bordeaux), but he also gives numerous masterclasses and workshops all over the world.In 2020, following numerous pneumonias and hospitalizations, Jesse faces a lung capacity of 40%.
