Performers

Miradonna Sirkka is a circus artist, for whom performances are comprehensive collaborations of movement and different forms of art. Sirkka graduated from Turku University of Applied Sciences in 2016. She has been taking her art towards an experiential performance that requires more involvement from the part of the audience. Sirkka has worked as a manager and as a performer in various art projects. She has produced many daring and very experiential performances during her artistic career, and intends to continue on this path.

”To me, circus is about entering different worlds, a place where everyone can be themselves."
