* Hours are subject to change, this is just to get an idea how the day is structured.
Spread the Madness! We want to challenge you! Not only in the tricks, but also in taking the good amount of risk! Carry each other, jump on each other, throw each other and most important trust each other! We will play games to understand “Hand to Hand” from a different perspective – the Kaaos Kaamos perspective!
We gonna make you sweat cleaning up your basics. Tempos, floor positions, tempos, one arms and also tempos! And we will work on your specific tricks with each duo/trio/group. Therefore giving you tools how to continue working on these without a teacher or lunge.
acro & handstands
Erika is a professional circus artist from Finland. She is one of the co-founders of Kaaos Kaamos. She specialized to hand to hand, handstand and acrobatics. She is currently working as a performer in different projects and as a teacher at the Die Etage. Movement is her passion and there is always new exiting things to explore. She creates a safe environment to fail and learn. She loves hugs and berries.
Perry always wanted to move. As a kid his grandmother asked him often if he could go to bed like a normal person, he refused while doing a roll into the bed… So it was obvious that he became a circus artist. Therefore he went to several circus schools (Die Etage Berlin, ACaPA Tilburg, Le Lido Toulouse). Nowadays he is performing with Kaaos Kaamos and teaching at Die Etage.
