Saloranta & de Vylder is an artistic collaboration between Sara de Vylder and Olle Strandberg Colling. The duo, which has a shared artistic leadership, is behind, among other things, the crypto-circus project The Sphere, The Cloud Jump AKA The Broken Neck Jump, cooperation and innovation hubs The Fantastic Place and several circus and performing arts productions.
Sara de Vylder and Olle Strandberg Colling are driven to develop alternative models for creative processes and performing arts production, thus finding new formats and contexts for their art. They work locally, nationally and internationally, often in collaborative projects. Their experience in circus has clearly demonstrated the value of shared risk-taking and this also permeates their projects in other art forms such as dance, art and theatre.
