Adela was born in the circus in Mexico, Circo Pazaran and comes from Maya Indian and Aztec Indian ancestors. Adela is hugely passionate and we adore having her on our team!
I am a Mexican British artist and come from a maya Indian and Aztec Indian ancestors so American Indian is in my blood, I have traveled all over the world performing my acts. i have worked from circus Renz Germany, Circus Alexander Bouglione belgium to Monte Carlo Monaco France, circus Royal Holland and nearly all shows in the UK including Planet circus, uncle sans great American Circus I could go on, and many TV shows in Berlin.
my father has Circo Pazaran and my mother was a professional ballerina, best combinations as I have grown into working a variety of acts from magic acts to trampoline acts and flying trapeze but my most favourite act I perform which is my signature act is the hair hanging combined with fire eating and breathing and bow and arrow Which finishes my current act.
Performing for me isn’t just a job it’s a way of life I was born into performing it’s in my blood, You can’t teach showmanship, you are born with it, and most importantly it’s not what you do, it’s how you do it, the centre stage is your chance to be whoever you want to be.
These words are what helped become the strong and passionate artist I am now today,
Performing is the greatest Show on earth.
Skilled on both Peg-Stilts and Foot-Stilts, with the ability to dance and engage while on stilts.
