Two young ladies unexpectedly meet face to face on the street. Strange coming together sincebisou-balle-eng they look perfectly the same. Not easy to accept this equality even more when their space is confined to an area under an umbrella. How to cope with this new challenge and keep the show on? Guided by their own movement, they have to juggle with their common difficulties and finally find their way to an own balance.

After three years of professional studies at Salpaus circus school of Lahti in Finland, Merle started her career during spring 2015 in the biggest traditionnel circus of Finland, Sirkus Finlandia, presenting now her comedy-pairacrobatic duo act, Two too late, with her partenaire Anni Pietala.

She is part of several other professional projects in collaboration with estonian, finnish and french artists: The freedom prison, By tractor from town and Toi-toi, Moi-moi.
Amandine Doat - Dancer and circus artist (dance, juggling, singing, pair acrobatic) Amandine Doat, a french artist, curious of adventure came all the way to Finland after her graduation in dance in the conservatory CNSMD of Lyon in 2011.
