Formafortis (Durham)Marion began her acrobatic career as a gymnast and Alexander as an olympic weightlifter.
In 1992 they also started doing acrobatics together in Munich. They founded the acrobatic group “forma fortis”, with which they performed internationally- mostly as duo, but also many times as trio or in collaboration with jugglers, dancers, singers, aerial artists… One of their speciality are adagio acrobatic tricks. In parallel to their performing activities they built up and taught for 13 years an acrobatic group of 50 students at the university of Regensburg. In that respect they also organized 12 international acrobatic festivals. In September 2012 they moved with their three children to Durham, UK. They are teaching regularly at Circus Central in Newcastle and all around the country. “Forma fortis” on facebook http://www.formafortis.de/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbGFz9vhS4w
