 MONIKA SIANOS 

A hyperactive child started riding a bike before she could walk, skiing at the age of 4, judo at the age of 6 and dance at the age of 9. This last one she never quit.

The circus career begun with fire spinning and street performing. However before becoming a circus artist for good, she has also been a street artist, fire performer, a long distance hitchhiker, a molecular biologist, a pirate, a jewellery artist, and a certified reflexologist.

In the autumn of 2013 she entered Esquela Internacional de Circo y Teatro CAU in Granada, Spain where she specialised in static and dance trapeze.

Trapeze as a skill brings her back to childhood carefree freedom. She looks for adrenaline, joy, and of course to combat the gravity, and for a split second, to fly. This pure thrill and joy, which she derives from dangling and spinning upside down, is in the essence, what she wants to share with her public.

Nowadays based partly based in Barcelona partly in Scotland, she continues investigating, searching new moves and own style on the dance trapeze. And continues working on new projects and numbers.

Part time a nomad, she lived in various countries, and travelled through many. Speaks 4 languages with various degrees of fluency. The mix of different cultures and experiences that forms most significant part of her education, left her a colourful mosaic of many useful, sometimes unrelated skills and abilities.

To dance the mirror of a glance, the texture of the clouds and the ephemeral sound of the passing train.
