Jatta is Finnish circus artist specialized in handbalancing, contortion and roller skating, currently based in Toulouse, France. She began her circus
                                                                          journey in 1997 when she started taking classes in a tiny traditional youth circus called Bravuuri in her native town Kuusankoski. She spent there
                                                                         13 years training, performing and giving classes, learning the basics of most of the circus disciplines.

                                                                         and contortion as her main disciplines. In 2012 she continued her studies in
Le Lido - Centre des arts du Cirque de Toulouse,where she started to
                                                                         explore how to combine 
theater, song, humor and absurdity with handstand and contortion.

Circo Aereo, Naga Collective, Les Nouveaux nez & cie, Cie Yoann Bourgeois, GOP Varieté Theatre..
