In 2003, when I was warming up, my wife Aurélie noticed that I turned the pelvis a little more than the norm. I immediately wondered if I could contort myself in this direction.
Since there were contortionists, they have twisted front and back, but never in rotation. I usually train for 3 or 4 hours per day, I added half an hour to my stretching, in order to get closer to the famous “180°”, millimeter by millimeter. In 2006 I showed it for the first time in the “Cirque du Grand Phenix”.
In 2013, I came to the idea of making another exceptional contortion, I invented the "180 ° Yenivatov battement". It is now my legs that rotate around my pelvis. These acts being extreme, I do not present them more than on special occasions (televisions or big galas). I have to prepar my body a month in advance.
