Artist agency, show production & choreography
Cosmic Artists is an extraordinary and multifaceted performance team from Berlin. Founder until today creative and visionary head of the team is Tony Mevius . After finishing his career as a competitive gymnast, the idea for the conception and choreography of exclusive acrobatics and artistry acts in the entertainment field came in 2001. Today this portfolio ranges from exclusive corporate events, trade fairs, TV shows to international sporting events. Over the years, former professional athletes have been trained as artists, talented artists have been cast and creative partners have been integrated into the projects, thus continuously expanding the repertoire. Unique acts of Cosmic Artists today are mainly the Tramphouse or the Airtrack Show, which are performed worldwide, but also aerial artistry and acrobatics acts, dance and music acts. Interactive mapping shows form another segment and offer completely new possibilities for brand staging. Agencies and clients from industry and business appreciate the know-how of the Cosmic Artists and the wide range of performances. Almost 2000 events worldwide, many TV appearances as well as the cooperation with Cirque du Soleil speak for themselves.
Since 2017 Cosmic Artists now also has its own creative and rehearsal studio in Berlin, the Y'Not Art-Loft, which can also be booked for artist residencies, photo shoots and livestreams.
Background Tony Mevius
Practically born into the gym, as the son of a successful gymnastics coach, sports defined Tony Mevius' life from an early age. At the age of 9, already away from home and at the Berlin Sports School, the rather own artistic gymnast dedicated his life to competitive sports until 1998. Numerous successes at German Championships, as a member of the Junior National Team and the Team Gym European Championships crowned his athletic career. Even during his subsequent studies in sports science, Tony Mevius could not let go of one thought. He wanted to create something bigger, something lasting, something of his own. The vision was to inspire not only the local audience in the gym, but preferably the whole world. So it was the logical consequence for him to found his own company in 2001 - Cosmic Artists. Away from high bar and rings into showbiz. After Cosmic Artists had made a name for itself step by step in the German event industry, it was time for Tony Mevius to learn from the best. In 2005, the renowned Cirque du Soleil hired the Berlin resident as its first German artistic gymnast ever. With the show "Quidam" Tony Mevius toured from continent to continent as aerial artist and character actor until 2011. Acrobatically perfectly trained and with a head full of ideas, Tony Mevius returned to Berlin in 2011, where he now dedicates all his energy and creativity to Cosmic Artists. Not only as a managing director, but also as a choreographer and artist, Tony Mevius continuously follows his dream of emotional and spectacular productions. And so it is not surprising that Cirque du Soleil today also books Cosmic Artists for its special events.
The artist team today includes an extensive casting list of exceptional people with unique skills. Among them are trained artists and professional athletes, as well as self-taught breakers, kickers and parkour specialists from the street and trend sports. Although the core team is based in Berlin, other artists are distributed throughout Germany, but also international colleagues and partners are part of the productions worldwide. The Cosmic Artists family includes artists from Belgium, France, Spain, the Netherlands, UK, Sweden Hungary and Brazil.
