BALANCE HANG SWING FALL
Elisa comes from Switzerland from a town surrounded by snowy mountains.
When she was 3 years old, her parents took her to discover the circus world. She swung for the first time on a trapeze and discovered the stage at Zôfy. She then continued her training at the preparatory circus school LeZartiCirque while enriching it with contemporary dance classes.
In 2019, she flew away to Stockholm and joined the university of the arts DOCH/SKH to perfect her practice. During her studies, she develops a dynamic trapeze technique by adding large swing, pirouettes, height, air. Balance is the core of her research, with her feet on the bar and her arms dancing around her, Elisa plays with the risk of falling, seeks precision in the movement, and explores different rhythms.
In 2021, she created a company with her partner Justin Collas: La Divague, a meeting between an acrobat and a trapeze artist. The duo takes part in the formation of a collective of 20 artists: T.B.T.F.
In 2022, she finishes her studies and leaves to perform on different stages around the world as a performer as well as a creator.
