Aino Savolainen

cyr wheel / Finlandia /

She was in a youth circus from the age of 8, where she trained and performed with several different disciplines. At the age of 20, she went to DOCH, Dance and Circus University in Stockholm, and graduated in June 2018 with Cyr wheel as her main discipline.

She believes, contemporary circus can be anything and bring an eternal variety of newly formed disciplines and ways to move and manipulate. There are no rules, which makes her feel free as an artist to express herself how she wants.

She likes to travel and meet her friends around Europe. Some of her hobbies are climbing, watching good movies, eating vegan Ice cream, walking in the forest and knitting.

She applied for CYRKULACJE because she’s interested in meeting new artists and eager to gain performing experience on different stages and countries. She’s also curious to see Eastern European contemporary circus.
