Ugo Dario & Maxim Laurin

About the Creators of Ghost Light

In their artistic endeavours, Ugo Dario and Maxim Laurin have always been driven by their desire to come up with original creations, break new ground and search for new challenges. Specialized in the teeterboard, they have been involved in creating shows for renowned circus companies such as Cirque du Soleil and Les 7 doigts de la main.

In the last decade, Ugo and Maxim have travelled the world and explored a wide variety of styles and artistic directions.

Throughout these experiences, they have had to deal with conditions of all sorts, at times extreme, that have provided opportunities to test and establish effective and personalized working methods. Since 2014, they have been part of the team of six cofounders of the young and promising company Machine de Cirque. They have notably been involved in the writing and staging of its namesake show. They also serve as artistic advisors in various projects. Their thirst for creation is now deeper than ever, and their passion for driving the evolution of the device has no bounds.

Ugo and Maxim are unrelenting in their efforts to push back the boundaries of the teeterboard: they want to see this discipline become the dramatic focus of a show. It is this deep desire that has led to the birth of Ghost Light.
