Julietta was born in late summer in Stockholm, Sweden.
In her early years, she saw a circus with only female artists,”Cirkusprinsessan”, and decided that she want to be a Circus Princess when she grows up!
This got of course totally forgotten, like many childhood dreams, and she spent her spare time on a lot of useless activities, like basketball, some tennis and fighting with fake swords.
But when she reached the age of 15, she took her jugglinghobby up a level, and applied to the circus highschool in Stockholm, she started to make her childhood dream to come true.
The three year long program she spend mostly on juggling, which was her first disciplin, but during the last year her second disciplin, hand to hand with Anna became far more interesting and got to be her new passion for a long time...
Anna was born in spring 1989 in Stockholm, Sweden. She grew up near forest and lakes where she also started her first acrobatic group with the kids from the community house.
Following her two brothers towards the circus life she left her old hobbies like singing and swimming to give more time for her new passion.
The circus became an obvious path and she past the audition for the circus hight school in Stockholm at the age of 16. At that time she had mostly explored the acrobatics, aerial hoop and handstands. But during the three years of hight school she got a base in several circus disciplines, dance and physical theatre. In the second year she started the work with her friend and future partner Julietta Birkeland. And fast they found their place and a stable relationship as a hand to hand duo.
To explore the circus out of Sweden the duo left for one year of circus training in Lomme, France. And then off to Brussels and École Supérièure des Arts du Cirque (ESAC) to complete their skills and duo. They graduated with their act ”Find five faults” in summer 2012.
Two women enter on stage to do a hand to hand act, so far so good.
It’s clear that they are talented and that their goal is to do a perfect duo-act to please their audience.
But isn’t there something not going as planned?
You don’t know. They don’t know.
But in the end, somehow, it doesn’t matter. It works anyway!
Length of the act: 8 min.
The show begins, they are ready with style and elegance. ”Blonda Brudar”, literary ”The Blonds” in Swedish, are two women with well-honed technique, very self-centered and with a slight lack of common sense... who gladly offers a show full of feminine and acrobatic and theatre!
Length of the show: 20 min.
Elegant and classy she impresses her audience with her talent to handle many balles in the air, but of course no one is perfect, and she stumbles upon some tiny problems on the way, but she will handle them with humor and finess.
Length of the act: 6 min.
