Where did you train?: Kiev Sports School of Olympic Reserves and later in 1999 I entered the Ukrainian Circus Academy.

What happened to your act [Duo Iroshnikov], are you still doing this? Do you both still participate in  the circus?

   We finished our career in 2013

Duo Iroshnikov was such a legendary act in the circus, why do you think it was so successful?

I think Because, at that time, no one could offer  such high level of trick complexity, and it was a completely new vision of the circus act.

What is your best memory of training?

  The exact moment I can not single out. I like the moments when the combination of motion invented in my head becomes to real.

What is your most unforgettable work?

 It was the festival TraumTanzer. We made the opening of the festival as part of the ‘RizomaTheater’.

I do not want to say that this was the worst place, everywhere there is small difficulties.
 But this place I remember especially. I will not name it. This is one of the prestigious place in Paris.

How did you end up in Cirque de Demain?

 We got  invitation from the organizer and founder of festival Dominique Mauclair

What kind of circus do you like to watch and in what form do you not like?

  I love the circus in all forms, classic and modern. For me is more important than the quality of the product more than the style.

Where do you find inspiration?

 First of allI in people around me, music and of course my half Tamila.

What advice do you give to beginner circus artists?

  Enjoy every moment and do not be afraid to make mistakes.

How have your goals changed over the past 10 years?

  Changed  so much. Now , I am like 15 years ago, in search of new goals and opportunities but already in a different way.

What do you think the circus does for the world?

  I do not perceive the circus as something global in the world, for me it is just one of many forms of creativity.

What do you most expect in the future?

   The birth of our daughter)))
