Biography









Beo Da Silva was born in Brazil in the city of Pernambuco. She starts her career as an actress and then she drifts to circus performance. She’s been to Europe, Australia, and USA, Canada in artistic collaborations, events and venues, galleries, amongst others. She participated in touring productions of cirque du soleil, circus Roncalli, Wintergarten, Friedrichbau and Apollo Varieté, Pomp Duck and Circumstance, Palazzo. In her work she combines different skills and dialogues with the public in any given situation. She introduced a new language into the aerial acrobatic world: the “Singing in Silk”, that has inspired many artists into a new category of circus performance.
Delicate and yet intense, her work tends to seduce the spectator in a shared experience with her spontaneous presence and vibrating voice. Beo navigates from Cabaret staged work to urban interventions, arts galleries, theatre and musicals.
