Juggler extraordinaire Kristian (Kris) Kremo will dazzle you with incredible artistry at the speed of light!
Born in Paris, Kris is the son of Béla Kremo, a former icarist whose “Gentleman Juggler” act was world famous, and his wife Marianne (née Kalbitz), both Swiss citizens. Kris went to school in Switzerland, often spending his summer vacations with whatever circuses his father was touring with at the time. It was during these trips that he learned various circus disciplines, which prompted him to perform with other circus kids in amateur shows. His father soon began to train him as a juggler, going so far as to send his son written instructions by mail during the school year so that he could practice.
At fifteen, Kris began juggling in amateur shows. A few years later, he became a professional. In 1970, at age 19, he partnered with his father in an act in which the pair performed the same routine in unison and at dizzying speed. The act included a series of three objects (three balls, three hats, three cigar boxes…), which was his father’s trademark.
Kris’s began his solo career in 1975 when he signed his first circus season with Blackpool’s Tower Circus in England. His success was immediate, and he embarked upon a brilliant international career with an act reminiscent of his father’s, but significantly improved—notably with triple and quadruple pirouettes while juggling his cigar boxes.
Kris Kremo has performed in major circuses, nightclubs, and variety theaters all over the world, as well as for Queen Elizabeth II of England and King Carl Gustav of Sweden. He was featured for a record eleven consecutive years (1978-89) at the Stardust Hotel in Las Vegas. Kris is now an American and Swiss citizen and is married to Russian hula-hoop artist Yelena Larkina.
