You could find Bavo in the youth circus school Circolito in Mechelen (BE) when he was 11 years old. From this moment on, he never left the circus. In 2007 for the festival Zomer op Straat he completed a training course to become a street performer. For this training, he performed several times on the festival and felt that performing was his calling. Performing led him to many street theatre companies. Making his own street-acts was a logical next step so he established his own company “SirComic”.
In 2011, he started the BIC to become a mentor in circus arts for youth circus schools. After this course, Bavo taught circus to children in different youth circus schools like Circolito and Spelati. From 2012 till 2013 he worked as an hospital clown, with the intention of making the situation of the children in hospital a bit less difficult.
After a few years of being active as a street performer, he felt that he missed the Circus. Bavo started a four year education at ACaPA, Academy for Circus and Performance Art in Tilburg (NL). Here he had classes in acrobatics, dance, theatre, trampoline and so on. For his fourth year stage Bavo gained work experience with Circus Ronaldo (a company he has admired for a very long time). In 2017, Bavo graduated with success in his main discipline Chinese Pole.
