Darkan can fly - that is, at least, on the vertical ropes high above the heads of the Tigerpalast audience. He transferred from the successful Kazakh gymnastics team to the State Circus School in Almaty.

Darkan spent months perfecting his vertical rope act under Grimailo’s watchful eye – which included daytime rehearsals here in the Tigerpalast. He has emerged as a highly talented performer with incredible discipline, great creativity and attention to detail. We look forward immensely to Darkan’s calm yet powerful act.
