The duo Circooltura (Emanuele Occhipinti and Eva Cermak) plays it's shows on festivals and on the streets in different parts of the world. They work with Cyr wheel, slack rope, equilibristic chairs, balance on bottles and handstands. In the last three years, they have travelled with their shows through Europe, Mexico, Southamerica and Australia. The experience gained in this way characterises the company's creations. Wherever they are, they train in circus spaces and work on their creations with different directors.
During the studies as a social worker the artistry takes more and more space in the life of Eva Cermak (Switzerland). She trains aerial acrobatics, slack rope and fire juggling. 2008 and 2009 she plays in two productions of the "Troupe Obini" and realizes her first fire show with the duo "Ususi Kay Pacha" in Switzerland. After finishing her studies in 2010 she travels to Uruguay where she lives for four years and starts working professionally as an artist. An important pillar in this process is the company "Ta que Arde", with which Eva Cermak presents fire shows in Uruguay and Brasil. She also gives lessons in aerial acrobatics and assists in the development of the "Circo Reciclado", a project that offers circus workshops with a social and ecological background. During this time she workes on her first solo street show with the slack rope. Since 2014 she plays her shows between Europe and Latinamerica, alone and together with "Circooltura".
In 2005, Emanuele Occhipinti (Italy) starts in the Circus school "Los Athenas" (Barcelona) with aerial acrobatics, handstand and acrobatics.
