WHO WE ARE?
Katerina Repponen is a talented and accomplished foot juggler who has made a name for herself in the world of circus arts. With a style that defies convention, Katerina is known for her dynamic and captivating performances that showcase her incredible skill and athleticism.
Katerina started her circus hobby when she was six years old. She used to be a part of Aino Heikkinen’s performance group that used to perform on the streets of Helsinki, and many people living in Finland have probably seen her at the Three Blacksmiths statue or at Esplanade Park. Her hobby gradually turned into a profession. Katerina graduated from the Salpaus Circus Artist line in 2010. Additionally, Katerina received training at the renowned Ukrainian State Circus School in Kiev. Katerina actively performs around the world in various productions, festivals, and theaters.
At the age of ten, I joined the Sorin Sirkus in Tampere. The hobby soon became an important part of my life, and my career as a soccer goalkeeper had to be left behind. In 1992, together with Eero Auvinen, we founded the juggling duo, The Buldig Brothers. The group still holds the 1995 Guinness World Record for the longest juggling performance, 12 hours.
I graduated from Circuspiloterna, circus school in Sweden in 2004 and my main disciplines are hand to hand and juggling. Since graduating I have been working in many circus productions as a circus artist and many theatre productions as an actor. I have also participated in several TV programs.
