Pauliina and Slava met under the big white top of theÂ Cirque du SoleilÂ in the show 'Alegria'. Pauliina performed with herÂ solo trapeze actÂ while Slava, a former world champion sportsÂ acrobat, worked in a hand-to-hand arobatic pair. Together the flying Finn and the sturdy Russian created a contemporary hand-to-hand actÂ combining dance, balance, and elasticity. Today they perform as free-lance circus artists in variety shows, special events, and films.
During the past six years, Pauliina and Slava have given about 2500 performances on five different continents for more than 120 million live and TV spectators.
