About Barcode

Barcode started working together in 2011 when Tristan, Alexandra and Eric met at the National Circus School of Montreal. They toured together for three years with The 7 Fingers as original cast members on the show Sequence 8, thrilling audiences around the world. Soon after they were joined by Eve Bigel, a talented hand to hand flyer from France.

Together their careers have produced a string of highlights including a gold medal at SolyCirco festival for Alexandra’s hoop act, a bronze medal at the Cirque de Demain festival for both Eric’s cigar box juggling and Tristan and Eve’s hand to hand acts, and a silver medal for the trio’s Russian Bar act, as well as the Audience Choice award. They have performed on France’s Got Talent, It’s Showtime, and multiple times on Le Plus Grande Cabaret du Monde.

In 2019, the team’s passion and creative spirit pushed them to co-found, with Sophie Picard, Cirque Barcode. The four artists are at once co-founders, co artistic-directors and artists onstage, with Sophie as co-founder and General Manager of the company.
