Kira & Anders

About Us

Kira & Anders are circus artist specialised in Chinese pole, partner acrobatics and aerial acrobatics. They have worked together since 2012 and are both professionally and privately a couple. Apart from the day-to-day absurdities of living together they enjoy dancing on stage as well as through all other aspects of life. Both live and train in Cologne, Germany.

Since 2018 the duo is touring with the street-theatre-performance ÔÇťThe fantastic gramophoneÔÇť through Germany and the rest of Europe.┬á

Kira learned her acrobatic skills doing equestrian vaulting and competed on an international level. Later she specialised in the circus arts and graduated 2013 as a circus pedagog. An important part of her work is doing social circus with people in areas of crisis around the world.

Anders, born in Denmark, graduated with a Bachelor in Circus Arts from Codarts in Rotterdam 2010, and has since worked for several contemporary circus, dance and theatre companies. He specialized in hand-to-hand acrobatics and chinese pole. He also enjoys juggling and playing guitar.

Shows

25 or 45 minutes open-air show

Like every other afternoon Mr & Mrs Twistly are rehearsing new dance steps in their livingroom interrupted by the occasional marital bickering.
And like every other afternoon, nothing goes as planed, courtesy of the kooky gramophone, which seems to have a life of its own. Nothing on this afternoon goes according to plan, and both sympathetic characters tries, despite all the commotion to keep calm and keep up appearance.
Dive into the entertaining world of the roaring twenties and experience the beauty and the absurd in living together. Acrobatic highlights on the Chinese Pole, whimsical surprises and poetry. All welcome!

30 minutes open-air show

This is the story of Mr. & Mrs. Twistly, who are on their way to their long-awaited holiday. But everything turns out differently than planned.
Unfortunately, the two have to pass their time on the platform as their train is delayed. Luckily, however, there is their large suitcase, which quickly dispels the initial boredom. Filled with many absurd and funny surprises and a lot of attention to detail, the suitcase keeps taking on new shapes. The two characters tell their story with elements of partner acrobatics on the ground and on the Chinese pole. The charming world of the 1920s provides the setting for this whimsical, poetic and impressive show.

Acts

Inspired by partner work the duo brings new heights to acrobatic figures, six meters above the ground on a pole.Prepare for a modern act like you have never seen before.Irresistible charm mixed with a bit of humour makes it a vertical walk in the park.

A tribute to the wild decade with humor, good mood and acrobatic highlights. The success of the presentation is trusted in the hands of the once marvelous technological wonder; the gramophone.

Experience an aesthetic piece of art in aerial silks, high above the heads of the audience.Be amazed by the elegant figures and shocked by the drops from 6 meters.
