Pierre and Pablo are real twins born in 1980 in Poland. The brothers studied gymnastics in their youth, and at age 17 became Youth World Champions in acrobatic sports. At 18, they started performing in a modern German circus.
In 2002, while performing an act called "Wheel of Death", Pablo fell 16 meters to the floor. As reported by newspapers at the time, some people in the audience at first thought the fall was part of the act. In reality, Pablo was severely injured and required extensive surgery and months of rehabilitation. He persevered with his brother as training partner, and together they brought Pablo back into gymnastic fitness, rebuilding his muscles and coordination.
In 2004, the Twins starred in the cabaret La Clique, at which they officially premiered their renewed twin act. They went on to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe that year, where they returned in 2005, selling out their entire run, and again in 2006, featuring a dual twin show with the Lombard Twins.
The duo's self-titled show runs to about 90 minutes, offering an entertaining combination of aerial and ground gymnastics, tricking the audience, especially as to which twin is which, and telling their own life stories, including Pablo’s 2002 fall and rebirth through recovery. The show ends with a unique routine, in which the two brothers do a gymnastics routine in and around a large, clear acrylic glass bowl onstage, symbolically representing their ongoing journey together, which began in utero in the "salt bath" of their mother’s womb.
The brothers are 1.63 m (5 feet 4 inches) tall, with blond hair. They have twin tattoos, of a puma, encircling one biceps, with Pablo’s on his right arm and Pierre’s on his left to form mirror images in their act.
The Twins openly play with sexuality and sex appeal in their show. Although both are straight, they happily acknowledge a large gay following, have performed at a variety of AIDS benefits, and profess a desire for tolerance of gays and other minorities.
The Caesar Twins have played throughout Europe and in Australia. Their appearances in Great Britain have included the Royal Variety Show, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, London’s Comedy Theatre, and Brighton Festival Fringe.
