Hugo Desmarais


I am a Canadian-born circus theatre artist, who has been working internationally since 1998, and based in London since 2009. I specialise in aerial hoop and loop strap and have previously developed several acts around my own custom designed apparatus – the cage.

I trained at both École de Cirque de Quebec (1997-2001) and École National de Cirque de Montreal (2001-2004) and began my professional career with Cirque EOS in Quebec while still studying. 

From 2004-2007 I was based in Las Vegas as a cast member in Cirque du Soleil’s resident show “Zumanity.” then spent 2 years on a variety of cruise ships with Norwegian Cruise Line. After joining the original cast of “La Clique” at London’s Roundhouse in 2009, I embarked on a multi-city world tour over 5 years in “La Soiree.”

Since then I have become a key fixture on London’s cabaret scene, performing acts of my own creation (both solo and duet) at venues including The Box, Proud Cabaret, Circus Restaurant, Soho Burlesque Club, Underbelly Festival Southbank and Park Chinois. Alongside this has been a wide range of corporate events, and appearances as a finalist on “France Has Got Talent,” on tour with “Strictly Come Dancing” and in Steven Spielberg’s film “Ready Player One.” I re-joined Cirque Du Soleil to tour North and South America in “Septimodia” from 2016-18, and in both 2019 and 2021 was a featured cast member in “Let’s Get Wicked” at Disneyland Hong Kong. Following this season of “La Clique” I will be joining the cast of “Atomic Saloon” at the Venetian in Las Vegas.
