Acrobatic performance Designer
Following the steps of his older brother, Philippe Aubertin got started in gymnastics at the age of five. He then became coach at the Gymnastics Centre of Montreal, a position he held until 1999. During his tenure, he was certified by the Canadian Association of Coaches. At the same time, Philippe pursued a university education in athletic training, but the appeal of Cirque du Soleil opened new horizons. Philippe joined La Nouba
in 2000 in Florida as a coach, then took up duties as Head Coach on the Japan tour of Saltimbanco
. In 2004, he returned to Cirque du Soleil’s International Headquarters as Head Coach before joining Corteo
on the road for two years in the same capacity. Philippe is also behind the acrobatic performance design of the third and fifth chapters of Les Chemins invisibles (2012 and 2013), a free outdoor show presented during the summer in Quebec City, as well as a few other Cirque du Soleil special events. After OVO, JOYÀ and ALLAVITA!
, Philippe Aubertin collaborates for the sixth time on a Cirque du Soleil production as Acrobatic Performance Designer with LUZIA.
