Troupe Vertigo

acrobats

Los Angeles-based theatrical circus company, Troupe Vertigo, was founded in 2009 by Aloysia Gavre (Cirque du Soleil) and her husband Rex Camphuis (Pickle Family Circus/ Film & Theater Producer). They create an eclectic and refreshing mix of circus-dance-theater works that ignite the imagination with mentally and physically spellbinding performances.

Troupe Vertigo encompasses the wide spectrum of the performing arts including performances at theaters, concert halls, festivals and special events.

Troupe Vertigo has been creatively involved with world class symphonies contributing widely with their theatrical sensibilities to help create new audiences to Symphonic Concerts. Including most recently with renowned Maestro Jack Everly for Cirque Goes Broadway and Cirque Cracker with the Phoenix Symphony. 

Their unique perspective on the circus arts have led to a variety of speaking engagements including with The Center Theater Group Los Angeles, Directors Lab West, TEDx Talk and The Chicago Contemporary Circus Festival. As well in publications for the cover story of Dance Teacher Magazine {August 2016} and in the book Ordinary Acrobat.

Troupe Vertigo premiered its first show in Los Angeles, Big Top for a New Generation, in 2010 at the Ford Amphitheater with a young rock n' roll group—Nightmare & The Cat, featuring Django and Sam Stewart.

The company returned to the Ford Amphitheater in 2012 with Nighthawks: A Film Noir Circus, inspired by American Jazz, Edward Hopper paintings and the gritty streets of crime novels from Hammett to Chandler.

2016 brought the creation of their newest work to life entitled TABLEAUX originally presented by the Dance Resource Center at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles. Tableaux features five women inquiring about confinement and freedom, while finding themselves constrained on an island of boxes, trapped by the constrictions of society and themselves.

Troupe Vertigo's facility is also home to Cirque School, LA's premier circus training space, which inspires an appreciation for the circus arts for "Anybody with Any Body".

Due to their Los Angeles home and having Cirque School as their sister company Aloysia & Rex's expertise are used often for the film & television industry. Most notably for Rebel Wilson's aerial performance in Pitch Perfect 2 and with Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz who utilized Cirque School resources not only for circus instruction but for character background research for the film Water for Elephants.
