Russian performance artist Svetlana blends modern dance, pantomime skills, magic and contortion to create her sensational new puppet act, which debuted at Teatro ZinZanni in Seattle last winter. Undulating, shifting, transforming right before your eyes, Svetlana’s puppet has been warmly received by the audience as both a highly skilled acrobatic performance and as a new comedic and romantic character. Trained in the ancient art of contortion from the age of nine, Svetlana studied at the Kiev State Circus School and has performed at some of Europe’s most distinguished venues including the Wintergarten and the Apollo. She is an original Teatro ZinZanni cast member.
