Elias was born in Germany in 1994. Bavaria to be precise. He learned how to juggle as a teenager and soon became hooked on it. Juggling was Elias‘ first step into circus. Attending Codarts Circus Arts after secondary school widened his horizon. There was a lot more to learn than juggling seven balls and dance; theatre and clowning became part of his passion. After graduating in Rotterdam with a „Bachelor Of Arts“ he continued his studies at the famous circus school „Le Lido“ in Toulouse, France. In May 2019, Elias became third at the international circus festival „Young Stage“ in Basel with his clownesque juggling act „Heppa“. He currently works as a solo performer and together with Christian König and Mikail Karahan as „Compagnie Wurst“.
