Andreas Muntwyler

edge
*1974, Wohlen, Switzerland

Andreas Muntwyler entered the world of circus as a child. Together with his family he performed in different circuses in Switzerland before the family circus "Circus Monti" was established. He received his training at the French state circus school Châlons-en-Champagne, making him one of Europe’s leading artists. His skills are as numerous as they are diverse: tight wire artist, aerialist, acrobat and dancer - he will master any artistic challenge. He grounds his virtuosity with a strong theatrical performance.
