Cosmic Artists is an independent and versatile acrobatics performance team based in Berlin. Founded in 2001, the company is managed by Tony Mevius and Stefan Herbrich today. Ever since the focus lays on acrobatics and performing arts for diverse events, this could be anything from corporate events, trade shows and TV events up to international sports and major events. In the course of time, the team of sports professionals, artists and creatives has been growing constantly and so did the repertoire of the show acts. Today Cosmic Artists have specialized in custom show concepts featuring acrobatic shows from Berlin, which hundreds of thousands of people get to enjoy each year.
Based on high-performance sports acts the goal is to make the show enchanting and capturing. The combination of aesthetic movements and perfectly synchronized group choreographies is what makes the Cosmic Artists Family stand out. Our clients from manufacturing and trade appreciate our flexibility and broad scale of services. Performances at the Federal Chancellery or various TV shows as well as collaborations with Cirque du Soleil say enough.
FOUNDER/ MANAGING DIRECTOR/ CHOREOGRAPHER
Practically born into the gym - as the son of a successful gymnastic coach - Tony Mevius’ life was determined by sports right from the start. Until 1998, at high school and college, he devoted all his life to professional gymnastics. Numerous victories at national championships as a member of the junior national team and the Team Gym European Championships are all highlights of his career. While studying sports in college, Tony was struck by a thought - he wanted something bigger, something to last, something to create, the vision to not only enchant the audience at his home gymnasium but instead the whole world. So finally, in 2001, he founded his very own company: Cosmic Artists. Away from a high bar and rings and into the show biz.
While Cosmic Artists began to establish themselves in the German event industry, Tony was to learn from the very best. In 2005, nobody less than Cirque du Soleil hired the Berliner as the first German artistic gymnast ever. As an aerial artist and character performer, Tony toured with his team from "Quidam" from continent to continent. In 2001, perfectly trained and with a head full of ideas, Tony returned to Berlin where he devotes all his energy and creativity to Cosmic Artists. As the manager but also choreographer and performer he pursues his dream of emotive and spectacular shows continually. So no wonder that even Cirque du Soleil hires Cosmic Artists for its special events.
MANAGING DIRECTOR/ FINANCE / EVENT PLANNING
They were children when today’s business partners Stefan Herbrich and Tony Mevius met at a gymnastics club in Berlin. As a member of the national team, Stefan became both a national and internationally, successful gymnast. Despite his prosperous outlook as an athlete, he took a completely different path in 2000. He completed college with a business degree and started a marketing job at the national railroad. That’s when their paths crossed again and Tony happened to be searching for a partner, who would know the world of gymnastics as well as business. There was no need for long discussion and thus, in 2006 Stefan joined the management team of Cosmic Artists. As CFO and manager of logistics, Stefan Herbrich isn’t just involve in organizational areas of the business. Like Tony, Stefan is an important member of the performing team and was also a part of the special event show for the renown Cirque du Soleil in 2014.
