The company LPM was created in 2013 when four jugglers Lucas Castelo Branco, Andres Torres Diaz, Johannes Bauhofer and Juan Duarte Mateos coming from 4 different countries met at the "Centre des Arts du Cirque - Le Lido".
Since that time they have combined their personal research and presented their work in various occasions. When they finished school they created their first piece "Piti Peta Hofen Show" (45min performance) in 2017. Since the première, the Piti Peta Hofen Show has been represented 70 times in different countries such as France, Italy, Poland, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, Portugal and Brazil.
In 2017, with the complete team, they started the creation of the show "Tutti Frutti".
