Duo Assaya

United Kingdom



We are a dynamic hand to hand duo who have five years performance experience around Europe and three years professional BA degree training in circus. We also specialise in aerial straps, lyra and contortion.

Liam's love for circus and physical activity started when he attended his first gymnastics class, at just 18 months old and from there continuing into 15 years of competitive gymnastics. His passion for circus stemmed from his gymnastics and at 15 he performed in his first circus show. He then worked for 4 years in professional circus and theatre shows before deciding it was time to take his career to a new level. Up rooting from his home in the uk and moving across the sea to Denmark, where he studied for a Bachelor degree in contemporary circus at the Academy for Modern Circus. Now in his last year and due to graduate in a matter of weeks he is looking on to the future and the exciting new endeavours that await.

From seven years of competitive gymnastics to youth circus training to AMoC, Maya has always thrived when training and performing. She first started working with Liam at a youth circus training program in her home town in Cornwall. Together they progressed and left Cornwall moving across the sea to Copenhagen where they studied for three years on a BA at the Academy of Modern Circus. Together with Liam she has already performed shows around Europe and plans to expand her performances to worldwide after her graduation.
