They have been touring the world with Cirque de Soleil (Saltimbanco) and are performing all over Europe in the most prestigious cabaret and variety theatres: The German twin sisters Julia and Ele from Frankfurt are among the best performers of their discipline. As duo Elja, they perform wonderful aerial acts that combine a high level of technicality, paired with strength, emotion, and compelling chemistry, which makes is almost impossible at times to distinguish between the identical twins who is flying and who is snatched.
After completing their training at the State Art School in Berlin (2004/05), the twins then further refined their technique with Viktor Fomine in Montreal, who specialises in teaching the flying trapeze.
Duo Elja offers a vast repertoire of aerial performances and acrobatics and can be booked for single gala events as well as for longer periods of time. Their breathtaking trapeze choreography alternates between fast hand and foot transitions and slow, beautifully synchronised movements; their aerial silk performance seamlessly merges elegance with power.
