I would like to tell you briefly about my life in the artistic field and about people who are significant to me. During my journey in life, my goals were met and changed for the better by the people I encountered. I am immensely grateful to them.
I was born in the small Soviet town of Pervomaisk in Moldova. When I was 8 years old, I coincidentally turned up at a show that the circus studio in my town gave. From that moment I began to engage in circus art with my first teacher Alexander Krachun who owned the school “CASCADE”. He taught me a lot. However, the most important thing is … to work independently and love your job.
In 2003, when I was 15 years old, I successfully passed the exams and entered into the Kiev State Variety and Circus College in Ukraine. There I studied hand balancing with my second teacher Witold Kuvshinov. Witold Kuvshinov taught me not to imitate anyone and to search for my own way of expression.
At the Kiev State Variety and Circus College I studied acting with my third teacher – Nikolay Baranov. Nikolay Baranov taught me that the tricks are not the main objective in circus – without content, capacity does not matter.
After two years of training I met a stage director, Vladimir Marin. He put together everything from what I previously learnt and opened the door for me to the world of show business. He worked with me to create three acts – “Snowfall”, “Time is…” and currently “You & Me”.
In 2007, after graduating in Kiev State variety and Circus College, I received a Circus Artist diploma and began working around the world in different circuses and variety shows. In 2015 I had great luck to take part in the creation of a new show, ‘Paris Merveilles’ with director Franco Dragone at the Lido de Paris. Which means – everything was not in vain.
A little later, I became interested in cinema, and already in 2016 I made my own first short film. Well, more information you can find about me on my website.
