Aurélien Oudot discovered circus by the age of 10 at the Cirque Nomade in Boulogne Billancourt, where he was trained by Gaël Massot, Loïc Marques and Lin Yung-Biau. He pursued his training at the École Supérieure des Arts du Cirque in Bruxelles, from which he graduated in acrodanse/contortion in 2014. As soon as he graduated, he performed internationally in circus and dance companies such as the Cirque du Soleil, Astragales - Michèle Anne de Mey, Strut&Fret, Les Argonautes, etc. He started to collaborate actively with the Compagnie DCA / Philippe Decouflé in 2017. Since 2019, he has also worked with early music companies : InAlto (Lambert Colson et Alice Foccroulle), Le Banquet Céleste – Damien Guillon and Le Poème Harmonique. This constant reseach of hybridity and genre blending led Aurélien to such various projects, but it also led him to create the Back Pocket Company along with Michaël Hottier. In 2019, his company won the Prix de la Critique Maeterlinck - Best Circus Show Category for its first creation, La Vrille du Chat.
