Category: Cast Shots, LIMBO Up Close


Born and raised in a traditional Russian circus family, Danik Abishev began performing in the circus at the age of 4 among the acclaimed artists of the Soviet Union’s state circuses at the height of their international recognition and exposure. After an award-winning tour of China and receiving the titles of Honoured Artists of Russia, Danik and his family moved to Australia, and Danik toured the country extensively as part of the influential Circus Royale. His revolutionary hand-balancing routines have been sought out by circus and non-circus productions alike, performing with hip-hop’s Tom Tom Crew in the Middle East and South America and earning him a position among the finalists in 2009’s Australia’s Got Talent.
