  Anatoliy ZalievskiyImpact Artists  

From Ukraine, born 1974, was junior champion in wrestling and vice-champion in 1500m. He visited the circus school of Kiev. Won gold medal in the category 'circus of tomorrow' at the 21th Festival du Cirque de Demain in Paris, and a golden clown at the 23rd Festival of Monte Carlo (and it was the first time ever that someone got standing ovations in Monaco).

His act, which he created for a cabaret in Kiev, combines perfect equilibrism with the graceful movements of a dancer. It has become one of most spectactular equilibristic acts in circus history.
Anatoliy sees his performance not as an circus act but as self-portrait. He searches for a perfection of lines. He glides as if he is weightless from one position into the next. Moments of grace and extreme strength...
