About us

Imagine two women performing astonishing partner acrobatics, without even the stability of the ground beneath their feet. On the rola-bola, balance becomes imbalance in a fraction of a second. But these girls won’t just surprise you with their graceful power and innovative technique – they’ll charm you with their 50’s looks and leave you asking for more!

Lotta and Stina began working together on the rola-bola in 2001, while performing with a youth circus in Finland. They spent three years perfecting their technique at the prestigious and demanding Ecole Supérieure des Arts du Cirque in Brussels, from where they graduated in 2008. Since then, they have worked for example in the Wintergarten Variety, Krystallpalast Variete, Circus Flic Flac, Palazzo dinner shows, Oh la la -production from Rolf and Gregory Knie, Le plus grand cabaret du Monde tv show, La Strada Bremen and Buskers Bern street music festival just to name a few.

 Twenty years later – Still here 

 Coming up 2023! 

Twenty Years Later…Still Here! is the story of two women’s wild joyride through two decades in the world of circus arts. Told with warmth, humour, and dizzying acrobatics, this show invites the audience to share the highs and lows of a life in showbusiness. From the fame, glory, glitz and glamour to the countless hours of practice, the blood, the sweat and the tears.


Through a combination of circus, physical theatre, stand-up comedy and live music, this show offers a glimpse into the lives of two performers who have seen it all: from standing ovations at the Munich Opera to dodgy ringmasters, drunken clowns and backstage areas covered in horse shit. Beyond the hard times, though, this story celebrates the inspiration and joy that live performance can offer to audiences and a friendship between two women that has stood the test of time.

 

Co-director/artistic consultant: Heidi Niemi
 

Twenty Years Later…Still Here! will premiere in 2023, thanks to the generous support of the Finnish Cultural Foundation's Pirkanmaa Regional Fund, the Arts Promotion Center of Finland, La central del Circ Barcelona and Cirko – Center of new circus Helsinki.
