Saar Rombout

Saar started doing circus when she was 5 years old at Circus Elleboog, a youth circus in Amsterdam. When she was 18 she traveled around New Zealand for half a year and ended up with a circus family, which made her decide to audition for a circus school. She studied at the Academy for Circus and Performance Art in Tilburg, the Netherlands from which she graduated in 2012 specialized in triple cloud swing and vertical dance. Since then she has participated in a documentary about contemporary circus, “Grazing the Sky” by Horacio Alcala. She taught and performed at aerial dance festivals in Ireland, France, Costa Rica and Houston, Texas.

The last year she worked as a rigger and stage manager on tour through the USA with the Acrobatic Conundrum and a tour through Sweden and France with Circus Cirkör with the show Epifonima.

At the moment she is doing a research master in Contemporary Circus Practices at Doch in Stockholm, where she is doing research with a lot of different rope constructions, discovering all the possibilities of the ropes.
