Hula Hoop Artist Kristin Lahoop from Berlin combines circus arts with passionate dance
So far Kristin Lahoop has produced several short Hula Hoop acts that she is performing at hooping events, vaudeville shows, and club nights. One or up to 5 Hula Hoops (also with LED) – her portfolio is very colorful. Since 2016 she has been touring with her streetshow “Sally & Kelly – The Hula Hoop Show”. Her latest production, “Regenbogenplanet”, a poetic and funny Hula Hoop Street show, had its premiere in july 2017. She is also member of the company LIGHT TALES who produced there first piece “Im Kreise geht die Reise”. Below you find a selection of her previous work.
A body in the hoop, pure silence. Then: a twitch of the hand, a movement of the shoulder – welcome to the journey in Kristin Lahoops wonderland. The Hula Hoop melds with her body and both tell a story about life with all its soft and hard moments. Kristin Lahoop combines Hula Hoop manipulation, dance and movement theater into a total work of art with outstanding precision, speed and poetry.
Reactions from the audience:
“This reminds me of Pina Bausch,” “That was the most beautiful Hula Hoop Act I’ve seen for years,” “Incredibly impressive and touching,” “You’ve invented a new genre, Contemporary Hula Hoop.”

Sally & Kelly
Sally has prepared a fantastic show, only Kelly does not know much about it yet. They bring many Hula hoops with them and start to do nonsense. They bite and kick Hula hoops or stuck in them. Beside the hilarious clowning, they present 2 solo and one duo act with high artistic skills and surprising singing performance.
