History of performances

Dana’s history of circus arts and performances

Krilakrila, my first circus creation and performance, an aerial circus project which forms part of my thesis for the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana, gained me the Prešeren Student’s Award in 2005.

Since graduating from the Circus Academy Centre National des Arts du Cirque in Chalons en Champagne, France, in 2008, the range and number performances I collaborate in has widened, and includes work with artists globally to promote innovative, experimental circus.
