Holland Lohse is an artist dedicated to living his life on the edge as a self-described daredevil acro-spartan. His quest to become an acrobat evolved from a childhood spent hurtling down Colorado mountains on a unicycle or climbing up them with ice axes, later becoming an accomplished competitive diver and National Age-Group Champion in trampoline gymnastics.
His passion for the circus arts first began after watching a Cirque du Soleil video of Quidam in 5th grade gym class. Since then, it has become a driving force and dedication to challenge the laws of physics and exceed his own physical limits every day. Pursuing his craft has taken him from Johannesburg to the Caribbean, from New York to Las Vegas working for Royal Caribbean, Le Grande Cirque, Cirque Mechanics and Cirque Du Soleil. Most importantly, wherever his work takes him, Holland lives his life the way he performs; stretching the boundaries of his mind and body, finding extraordinary ways to take his art to new creative levels and, in doing so, inspiring his audience to remember what it’s like to live a life with limitless possibility.
