Applied contemporary circus perspective
A taste of field coverage and experience
Been a circus artist in the 21th century means much more than presenting something. This profession travelled beyond the spaces of the big tent, but kept many of the beautiful human principles of this millenium art, like the ability of reinventing oneself, amazing through excellence, transforming difficulty in opportunity, and valuing the uniqueness of the individual and the importance of the collective. These values are translated in the career of Mia with passion and sweat.

Workshops on Balance & Physical preparation
An acrobatic body is a resilient state of being. A useful tool to employ on research for scene and life. Through workshops and programs Mia already passed on her knowledge helping out other performers to get just in the right shape for a specific production, and very ordinary people on the noble pursuit of healthier life!
