Spain. I'm a searcher of balance, sound, percussion, clown, animal movement and astronomy. After the studies in the circus school Rogelio Rivel in Barcelona where I specialized in handstand, my travels went to the north, where I did 1year at LIDO (circus school, Toulouse, France) and DOCH (University of Circus and Dance, Stockholm, Sweden) were I finish my studies with the diciplines of handstand and acro-dance, were I was granted Sophie Hulten's circus scholarship. I let the themes of gender and animality inspire my work.

Finland l started to perform when l was seven. Since then l have performed with aerial rope, acrobatics, tap-dance, street dance, classical music, origami, juggling and magic. Im also a koffein-alkohol-drug free modern world enthusiast and multi-instrumentalist playing and composing classical and electronic music with for example piano and electronic instruments. Year 2009 l was founder of tapdance-theater company "Ryhtivika" . I have studied circus in Koulutuskeskus Salpaus in Finland and DOCH (University of Circus and Dance in Sweden) with the dicipline rope and 15 years of studies in classical piano, musictheory and other subjects in Music-institute of Kauniainen and Conservatory of Lahti. People recognise me by my long legs behind my neck and fakir tricks like spoons in the nose. I get inspiration from animals, geometry, classical and electronic music and anything urban that is developed of pure interests for the thing itself.

Animal Religion want to encourage the wild and illogical within the audience, and try to put light on weird routines off modern life.

The audience studies the behavior of the artist, not unlike a visit to the zoo, a tidy context where something savage might be safely glimpsed.
