the company in a nutshell

The company Les fills du renard pâle was born on August 14, 2016, in Châlons-en-Champagne.

The artistic projects of Les filles du renard pâle  are carried by Johanne Humblet, artistic director of the Company, who creates different forms of Funambule Performances. All the various encounters and experiences on the wire made Johanne Humblet want to go further in her research. His work and his artistic approach, within the company, are about surpassing oneself, seeking limits and pushing them back, all in a tenacious desire for artistic sharing, encounters and exchanges.

All of the Company's projects are accompanied by live music.

Johanne Humblet

A wire. 12mm in diameter. Balanced, Johanne traces her course on this straight line. She made her debut at the Brussels Circus School, went through the Espace Catastrophe, then, in 2003, left her native Belgium for Paris. She joined, for 4 years, the professional training of the Fratellini Academy and obtained her Diploma in Circus Arts.

Attracted by the great height, Johanne tests, plays and explores all the possibilities offered by this metallic partner.

On stage with, among others, Komplex Kapharnaüm, Cirque Bijou (UK), Cie Barolosolo, “Sodade” from Cirque Rouages, “Soritat” from Cie Timshel, “La Quincaillerie Lamoureux” from Cie Max and Maurice, “Les Cabanons” of the Buren Cirque, “London 2012” with the company Les Colporteurs,...

On screen with, among others, the short film “Les acrobatiques – Le fil” by Catherine Cabrol, and the film “The Farewell Affair” by Christian Carion.


Now established in France, and rich in her experience, Johanne decided to create in 2016 the Compagnie Les filles du renard pâle to have the freedom to create your own projects.

In 2021, Johanne becomes associate artist at Bonlieu Scene Nationale of Annecy and at The PALC Pole National Cirque du Grand Est.

Virginie Fremaux

Virginie was 8 years old when she discovered the circus “aux Campelières” (Piste d'Azur).

At 24 she graduated from the Fratellini Academy where she explored the elastic smooth rope and aerial lifts.

In search of emotional accuracy in her physical practice, Virginie turns as a performer to hybrid universes. She never stopped developing her quality of movement through the work of, among others, Bruno Dizien, Pénéloppe Hausermann (Trapezi, butterfly, flesh), Kitsou Dubois (A counterpoise, L'espace d'un moment), Julie Béres (Under the faces, We are not alone in our skin, Our need for consolation). She also joins the Cheptel Aleïkoum for "The meal", an adventure that allows her to explore a simple and sincere relationship with the public, a wall that falls, a precious job.

Now based in the Gers, she is interested in the development of cultural projects in rural areas. She aspires to transmit her gaze to the set, but also through the image, her other passion, through graphic design and illustration for artistic projects.
