Christopher Morant

Christopher Morant was born in Melbourne in 1976 and grew up in the Eastern suburbs of the city. At the age of 18 he learnt to control his emotions through Chinese Martial arts which gave him the foundations of discipline, determination and desire. “Learning how to hurt people is easy” according to one of Chris’ teachers. “If you want to be great, you must learn how to heal people”. So this is where he embarked down the path of Chinese Medicine. He has an Advanced Diploma in Health Sciences and had further study in China.

Since1994 Chris has provided entertainment for many corporate, private, cabaret and themed events, of large casts and solo performances, as well continuing his passionate studies of Acting, Acrobatics, Comedy, Fire Manipulation, Mime, Magic and Juggling.

Chris has learnt most of his skills from living and traveling the world with other circus artists and magicians, and genuinely loves making people mesmerized and entertained.

Another discipline Chris pursued was the ancient Venetian art of hand made leather masks. This is where the relationship of the Comedia Dell ‘Arte and Carnival came to influence his work.
