At the age of 18, marie set foot on the wire and encountered the world of the circus - until then, she thought that the circus was only for the children of dark trapeze artists and fiery fakirs. She trained at the circus school in bordeaux, amiens and toulouse. In 2021, she joined the cie la migration and a created a cabaret project under a big top.
