Born in India and raised on 4 Continents, Sara Schmidt as “Sara Twister” started out her career as a multi-skilled circus artist performing at high-end galas, corporate events and variety dinner shows with her world-class acts, both solo and as part of large-scale productions, and has been since twisting her way across festivals and stages worldwide.
She has trained in the arts of contortion at the Excola Nacional de Circo in Rio de Janeiro, and under the tuition of world-renowned contortionists at IVA International Variety Academy in Berlin, Germany.
And the challenges got harder and the dreams got bigger …
to become the entertainer she is today, Sara spent the next few years focusing on the art of “street-performing”, learning to attract and truly engage large audiences in the most authentic circumstances, as well as dedicating to her circus practice to achieving what she would refer to as the “impossible thing”, otherwise known as the art of “acrobatic-archery.”
…with one target in mind.
In the summer of 2015, she added another string to her bow by combining this knowledge and expertise in the creation of her very own solo show “ready-Aim-Fire”, an archery show like no there, with which according to plan, she has begun to take over the world.
And so it began …
Sara Twister is now a regular on the global busking circuit and is currently based where ever her bow is ;).
