Manda is a Swedish circus artist specialized in aerial hoop, aerial rope and handbalancing. At  17 years of age she got her first contract as an aerial acrobat in the jazz opera “Porgy&Bess” and since then she continued to perform in circus productions, art collaborations and commercial events around the world. She combined her aerial career with developing a second dicipline, handbalancing, which she went to study both at the State Circus School in Kiev and Codarts Dance University in Rotterdam.

Previous work include shows like “Versus” at Chamaleon Theatre in Berlin, “ID” Cirque Eloize, “Wear it like a crown”  Cirkus Cirkör, “Cyclope” MAAG Entertainment, “Limits” Cirkus Cirkör and “Maskarade” at the Royal Opera in Copenhagen.  She also performed and created tailor made acts for companies like Red Bull, Rotary, Watermill Center, Lars Von Trier and Chicago Bulls.
