Former Circus Performers Move to Gard, France
French stunt woman Karine met her American high wire walker husband Jade when they were both performing with Cirque de Soleil in Orlando, Florida. They got married on a high wire and after relocating to L.A. and living there for six years they decided to move to Gard in the south of France to raise their two sons. Since Karine is French and Jade trained at circus school in France it made perfect sense to return. They packed a twenty foot container and made the move. Their key wishes were to find an old stone house with access to fresh water such as a spring or river, 3 or 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and plenty of outdoor space for Jade's high wire and on which to create an artist's retreat; a dream of Karine's which would allow them to earn money working at home. They also wanted their two young sons to be raised in a more laid-back environment compared to the hustle and bustle of L.A.
