Les Rois Vagabonds
Les Rois Vagabonds is a French company that is the result of Julia Moa Caprez and Igor Sellem joining forces. This duo’s eclectic pasts, covering acrobatics to music and everything in between, including dance and mime, led to a shared desire to explore the world of clowns. They have been working with a universal style, without words, since 2008. They identify with a long line of legendary clowns, such as Grock, Buffo and Slava, who aimed to create shows that evolved as their careers progressed.
Igor Sellem is a clown, acrobat and trumpet player. After studying mountaineering and spending 10 years travelling through France as a trumpet player and acrobat with the Erectus company, he began exploring clown art with Yvo Mentems and Caroline Obin, two heavyweights on the European clown scene. He founded the Les Rois Vagabondes, with whom he has travelled the world, with Julia Moa Caprez.
Julia Caprez is a violin player, acrobat and clown. After studying dance theater at the AHK College in Amsterdam and at the Buenos Aires and San Francisco circus schools, she joined street theater, cabaret and circus and dance companies. Inspired by the teachings of Jeff Raz, Yvo Mentens and Caroline Obin, she created Les Rois Vagabondes with Igor Sellem, a company that has performed at important venues worldwide.
