Live performance showreel
Adagio around the world
Arisa & Norbi came together in 2015. Two personalities from either side of the globe, with a shared love of creation and originality, have since been entertaining audiences together in more than 20 different countries around the world!
Arisa was born in Tokyo and raised with no exposure to circus. However, inspired by Cirque Du Soleil, at the age of 18 she was motivated to become a circus artist.
After graduating from the Sori International Circus School in Japan in 2011, she continued her circus formation at l'École de cirque de Québec in Canada from 2012-2015.
While in Quebec, Arisa continued to study contortion, then later added hand-to-hand, aerial hoop and tissu loop to her repertoire. Having a strong interest in contemporary dance and the aesthetics of movement, Arisa also thoroughly enjoys combining circus with other ideas, to create beautiful pieces of performance art.
Although specializing in juggling at school, Norbi began training hand-to-hand and other acrobatic arts after graduation.
Using influences from years of travelling the world, Norbi has managed to combine classic technique with original modern research, to create a fresh representation of circus.
