Valpuri Kaarninen

Valpuri spent her childhood in Finland fostering her endless interests. At the age of 12 she accidentally found her way to the local youth circus Sorin Sirkus and immediately realised she had found the right hobby for her. In Sorin Sirkus she met Maria and Ronja and they started to collaborate on the triple trapeze and with the skipping ropes.

Valpuri performed in Sorin Sirkus for several years for annual Christmas shows, multiple events and international festivals, such as the European Youth Circus Festival in Wiesbaden. At the same time she finished her BA degree on Journalism in the University of Tampere.

In 2011 Valpuri, Maria and Ronja decided to take their circus hobby to the next level and they applied to École Superieure des Arts du Cirque in Brussels. After three years of intensive training on circus techniques, theatre and dance, they graduated in spring 2014 with an act that introduces an original style to use triple trapeze with a technique of two catchers and one flyer.
