Ever wondered what it would be like to run away with the circus? Inka Siefker did at 20 years old, and she’s never looked back. The contortionist, circus and cabaret performer, archer, and artist is completely dedicated to her craft, and she’s on a mission to entertain the masses with seemingly impossible feats. Fun fact: She holds the Guinness World Record for “farthest arrow shot into a target using the feet” — and she did while in a handstand!
What the world finds fascinating has become routine to Siefker. “Living in the circus is where the crazy things become just the normal,” she says. “You can’t imagine what it’s like to wake up in a circus gym, and just see all these amazing people around you.” She describes the circus as a community of people who inspire her to test what she is capable of.
Watch as she takes you through a day in her life, complete with a dazzling performance under the big top.
