Flo Zumkehr started training circus as a young boy in Switzerland, before pursuing his dreams further at the State Artist School in Berlin. He went on to perform with at the Chameleon and several German cabarets before moving to Montreal, where he soon was hired by Cirque Eloize, then The 7 Fingers. After years of touring, something called Flo back to Berlin, he began to explore WHY he started circus in the first place, and his findings led him to his latest project the company Analog.
