Born February 18, 1971 in Châteauroux France, Virgile Peyramaure grew up in show business. His father ran a small circus company, his mother was a wardrobe mistress. For a time Virgile considered a ballet career. But he eventually opted for the circus. At age fifteen he entered the Centre National des Arts du Cirque, the French state circus college in Châlons-en-Champagne, where he was trained and mentored by the legendary Claude Victoria. Under the wing of Claude Victoria, he developed a hand-to-hand balancing act with another student at the Centre, Sophie Ferrero.
Once their act was ready, Sophie and Virgile embarked on a brilliant international career that took them to prominent venues such as Circus Knie in Switzerland, Cirque du Soleil in Canada, Circus Roncalli, Berlin’s Wintergarten in Germany, Paris’s Lido in France and many more around the world.
In 1995, they won a Gold Medal at the Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain in Paris. They first performed their impressive act in the U.S. at the Big Apple Circus in 1996-97 and returned in 2000-01 for their farewell season.
Virgile remained at the Big Apple Circus. He became a member of its resident company and performed there in a diverse variety of acrobatic acts. During that time he became Assistant
Performance Director, in 2009 the Artistic Coordinator, and moved up to the position of Assistant Artistic Director of the Big Apple Circus in 2014. Over the past year Virgile has been traveling throughout the united states teaching acrobatic workshops, sharing his thirty plus years.
