Elena Damasio – Cyr Wheel

Elena Damasio, Turin (IT), 1995. One day two guys appeared in her town and did a little circus performance to show what they were teaching in their new youth circus school. Elena immediately decided that this would be the job of her life. Bringing joy, making people smile, trying to make them forget their problems and “see the sun” even for just one minute: that is her call and drive. After high school she graduated at Cirko Vertigo in Turin and now she is ready to leave Codarts Circus arts and go out in the world to spread her joy and light.
