The brothers Ivan and Adans Lopez Peres represent the 5th generation of a famous Portuguese family of circus artistes; the father, an artiste-acrobat, clown, which even the generations before him were, and the mother, a flamenco dancer, graduate of the Madrid Conservatoire of Dance.
Ivan and Adans were born and spent their childhoods in the circus world.
In 1986, when the boys were 5 and 12 years old, their parents decided to leave the circus. In the following years the brothers pursued school, practiced sports, especially acrobatic gymnastics and attended classes of classic and modern dance.
In 1992 the family re-entered the circus arena, presenting a traditional clown act in which even Adans took part. Simultaneously, Ivan 11 years old and Adans 18 years old, the brothers started rehearsing an act of partner equilibristic, and they were admitted at the National Circus School-Egidio Palmiri, Cesenatico, in Italy. At this school they acquired the technical knowledge of the acrobatic elements and together with the instructors, Agustino Merzari (Italy) and Beniamino Vardo (Russia) they created the actual act.
The act is a modern presentation of partner equilibristic, in which the static and dynamic acrobatic exercises are combined with movements of modern dance.
The brothers appeared for the first time with the new act at the FESTIVAL MONDIAL DU CIRQUE DE DEMAIN in Paris, France, in 1996, where they awarded the "Gold Medal".
