I asked Li Ling Kassing from The Netherlands to tell me more about her experiences as a contortionist.
How long have done contortion for?
I have done contortion for 9 years now
How did you start contortion?
I did a sport before I did contortion (rhytmic gymnastics) and a trainer from rhythmic gymnastic saw I was really flexible. And she recommended I go to see Corpus Acrobatics. So I did an audition and from there one everything continued
How often do you train and for how long?
I train 2 – 3 time a week
What is your favourite contortion move/trick?
I don’t like a particularly movement. I like lots of movements
What has been your best contortion experience?
My best experience… that’s a good question. When I was younger I did a theater show with a whole team of Corpus Acrobatics. In my own country and also abroad. I really liked that
What is your ultimate contortion goal/dream?
My dream would be to get better in this. And do lots of performances
