Magnus Jakobsson

Magnus studied circus, specializing in acrobatics, at the Circus School of Gavle in Sweden. During this period, he developed a comic acrobatic duet inspired by silent film slapstick, which led him to perform in Scandinavia and Europe. In 2001, James Thiérrée proposed him to work with La Compagnie du Hanneton on The Junebug Symphony and Au Revoir Parapluie, which toured for seven years all over the world. In the same time, he also collaborated with Swedish actor and conjuror Carl-Einar Hackner, in Sweden and Germany. In 2005, he co-created the Teatro Bao’s Flyttfaglar with Tobias Engelbrektsson and Marta Chaves.
