Contemporary circus is something I am most passionate about in life. I started practicing circus disciplines in 2014, in 2015 I discovered aerial acrobatics and fell in love, realizing circus was the thing I want to do for a living. Universe had it's one vision, and in the Summer 2015 I broke my back in four places. This trauma, followed by a long depressing recovery, changed a lot in my head, but I did not consider dropping circus for anything else. Instead I found my interest in circus directing, producing and development and that was how I found my place in the world.
Now, after a year, I recovered and I am getting back to aerials. There is no contemporary circus school in Lithuania and no professional teachers to learn from, and that is why I asked government for funding to go to Rogelio Rivel circus school in Barcelona and learn from professionals. I was lucky enough to get it, but I only got 1/3 of what I asked for, and the amount of money I asked for was barely covering all the expenses for 3 months of studying. And that is why I decided to start this campaign. I want to make circus, I want it more than anything, and I want contemporary circus in Lithuania to be a good quality art. And that is why I need to learn. I will be deeply thankful for every donation, because it is going to change my life. Thank you.
