Power of 2: Ilia & Oksana
Location: North America
Shows: 2 x 45 min
Ilia & Oksana both come from incredible backgrounds in the arts.
Ilia, from Russia, began his career with the Red Army Dance Company. With his acrobatic capabilities he became the star dancer in the famous Moulin Rouge in Paris. Ilia’s power, balletic grace and acrobatic prowess made him an instant success and an international sensation. He has been a star feature in the Lido de Paris, The Casino Monte Carlo and, most recently, Cirque du Soleil, where he got the chance to combine his experience as an aerialist with comedy.
Oksana, from the Ukraine, graduated from A. Erdeli School of Neoclassical Dance, and the modern dance studio ‘Blitz’. At the age of twenty she worked with acrobatic artists from Cirque Du Soleil and totally fell in love with the craft. After considerable training she created her own acrobatics performances with a ring, straps and the silk cloth.
As a duo, Ilia & Oksana have worked all over the world, and tonight they are thrilled to grace the stage with their acrobatic power and joy of movement.
