Manda was born in Stockholm and decided to become a circus artist as a child when she visited the circus with her family. Both dance training and circus school lead to her first work as an aerial Acrobat already at 17years old in the Opera Porgy&Bess.
After one year of working she went on to Codarts University in Rotterdam, followed by one semester at Kyiv Municipal Academy of Circus arts in Ukraine where she specialized in het second discipline, hand balancing.
She is mostly known for her aerial hoop act that combines power with elegance and rare tricks. Her style comes out of many years of movement research and passion for the apparatus. In reviews she has been described as “aerial murmaid”, “punk”, “Pippi Longstocking-strong”, “probably not having any bones in her body” and “death-defying”.
Previous work include shows on tour like “ID” Cirque Eloize, “Wear it like a crown” and “Limits” by Cirkus Cirkör, Mamma Mia The Party, Wallmans Salonger and “Maskerade” at The Royal Danish Opera and Canal Circus Japan. She also made the solo show “Semaphore” that has been performed both in swedish and english versions.
Among clients for special performances is Red Bull, Lars Von Trier, iZettle, Chicago Bulls, PayPal, FOX News, Rob Wilson, NBC.
