Nina Burri, is an exceptional artist originally from Bern – Switzerland. After a very successful ballet career of more than 10 years with engagements with the world’s best ballet companies, shows and theaters, such as the Moulin Rouge in Paris or Maurice Béjart’s Ballet in Lausanne, Nina decided to create her first acrobatic solo act. She took a leap of faith and went to Beijing – China for 6 months to learn the art of contortion and hand-balancing.
Back in Europe, Nina created her first act called “Goldeneye”, a homage to the “James Bond” movies. She won her first award in 2009, The Prestigious Swiss Newcomer prize and came in second place in the TV Show “Switzerland’s Got Talent“ in 2011.
Nina attracts audiences worldwide and performs her acts in high-class galas, corporate events, TV shows and festivals. In July 2014, Nina was given a US Green Card for her unique career and unusual achievements in the art of contortion and is now on her way to conquer America and the rest of the world. Additionally she shares her knowledge in workshops, talks and seminars.
