Lizeth Wolk was born and raised in Estonia, Tallinn. After many years of being involved with visual arts and music she found the circus world through a youth circus in Tallinn (Folie). In 2012 life brought her to Finland to study in Koulutuskeskus Salpaus to become an aerial artist. In 2015 she finished the school specialized in aerial hoop. On the side she likes to play around with fire, doing double staff, breathing and eating fire. Still passionate about visual art, Lizeth brings her handycraft skills into circus by building puppets, making costumes, using her paintings and by finding quirky technical solutions.

Grete started in year 2003 with circus at Circus Studio Folie in Tallinn. After three years of studies at Salpaus Further Education Circus department (Lahti Circus School in Finland), she is now working on several international and national group and solo projects. She concentrates mostly on aerial acrobatics, doing double-hammock as main discipline, but also researches combining different art forms, for example poetry and visual arts with circus.
