In additrion, she often photographs her work and transfers it into award winning fashion – a concept she calls “Portable Gallery”.


Katarina Danks is a contortionist, handbalancer and performance artist, collaborating with Krystman’s Art 4 Wear line. During her performance, she will stage an artistic fusion between acrobatic movement and visual expressions of art.


Danks is originally from Pittsburgh, PA and she is trained in both Mongolian and Western contortion techniques, learning from the world’s most prestigious trainers and performers from Europe, Canada, the U.S.; and circuses like Cirque du Soleil, the Big Apple Circus, Ringling Brothers, and Circus Roncalli.
