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! 

 

In December 2021 will be 20-years since Lotta & Stina first performed together on rolabola. At the moment they are creating an anniversary show that will be premiered in the autumn 2022.

"Twenty years later – still here!" is a peek into the 20-year journey of two female circus artists in circus, art and friendship. The main themes of the performance are the different roles of women, stereotypical prejudices and the freedom of everyone to be their own regardless of gender or origin. The autobiographical performance combines rolabola acrobatics, physical comedy, stand-up and live music.
