Joined 2 years ago from Ireland
Born in Paris, Christophe's first brush with performance was as a boy-alto, aged 8, with the choir
"Les Petite Enfants à la Croix Brûlée"
(The Little Children of the Burnt Cross).
Having caught the performance bug, he later formed a Musical Duo with a colleague, while stationed in
New Caledonia with the French Army.
After the army, Christophe returned to Paris where he attended the prestigious Cours Simon Acting school before striking out to try his hand at many forms of performance, in France, Germany, Senegal, Ireland, Malta & UK.
After moving to Ireland in 1997 Christophe worked for
Il Florilegio circus, then auditioned for and became a member of the Society of Irish Magicians.
Specialising in Acting, Magic and Medieval Combat display, Christophe also studies Astrophysics with the Open University.
For the last five years he has been the owner-operator of Trapdoor Entertainment and has seen the company grow from strength to strength. One highlight was the successful international tour over Christmas 2012, of his self written card based magic show "A La Carte", working with his fiancée, who designed and managed the show on tour.
2014-15 has been a developmental period for Christophe. After some further education with an incredibly talented tutor in Dublin, Christophe has been focussed on developing new projects for the 2016 season and beyond. With a stage play at the devising stage, Christophe also launched his new initiative, "The Performers' Backyard", which aims to work at a grass roots level to support performers of all levels, not only in a professional, but also a personal context. Primarily this work has taken the form of a vlog, but further projects are also being explored.
After a first foray into Musical Theatre, playing as Drake in the Mullingar Musical Society's production of "Annie" in October 2015, Christophe returned to the Mullingar Arts Centre for his first ever panto season, and appeared as Captain Morgan in Cinderella.
He lives in County Westmeath, Ireland, with his actor & technician fiancée & her assistance dog, four cats, six chickens and two fish. In his rare moments of down time, he loves to cook and bake.
