Thomas Guérineau

Last updated: April 23, 2024

Thomas Guérineau taught himself juggling at age 15. He honed his skills at the Annie Fratellini school from 1992 to 1996, along with learning dance, acrobatics and mime. These years of instruction taught him the importance of the art of movement. He was drawn to dance and music, taking part in opera ballets and practicing the clarinet, percussion and singing. 

In 2008, Thomas Guérineau and Rémi Laroussinie created the Festival Rencontre des Jonglages, which remains one of the largest juggling events in existence. They founded La Maison des Jonglages in the same vein, and co-led it until 2010. 

Because juggling techniques are vectors of sensation, Thomas Guérineau uses this aspect of the body-sound-object relationship to put the public in direct contact with the essence of his work. Sharing has taken on a particularly important role in his journey as musical juggling has developed in his recent collective pieces, such as Maputo-Mozambique (2013), or Rêverie and Ombres, corps, sons (2020).
