KATERINA REPPONEN

Her hobby gradually turned into a profession.

PASI NOUSIAINEN

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.
