Luisina grew up in a loving family in the suburbs of Buenos Aires, Argentina, spending her days between school, the gymnastics club, her sister's concerts, playing piano with her mom, drinking mates with friends and wandering around theaters both on and off stage.
At the age of 13, Luisina saw a circus show where she fell in love at first sight with the German Wheel and from that moment on they never separated again. Hand in hand with Leandro Aita, Luisina made her first turns around the wheel at the Espacio Zero circus school in Buenos Aires. After high school, Luisina was fortunate enough to train and work side by side with one of her first and greatest inspirations, Wolfgang Bientzle - an icon in the history of German Wheel as a sport and as an art - who generously invited her to further her practice at CircEsteem, a youth circus school in Chicago, USA.
After 4 years of this enriching experience, Luisina continued traveling the world with her wheel as a professional circus artist, performing on stages in various cities (Abu Dhabi, South Korea, Japan, China, United States, and Argentina), also experimenting with other disciplines such as Cyr Wheel and German Wheel as a duo.
At the age of 24, responding to a need for new artistic challenges and internal exploration, Luisina decided to temporarily withdraw her focus from work in order to place it on her training and growth as an artist. She spent three years at the National Circus School of Montréal and, in 2019, she graduated from the DEE Generalist Artist program in the disciplines of German Wheel and Cyr Wheel (Minor in Hula Hoop Manipulation)
Once graduated, Luisina co-created and performed two shows at Montréal Complètement Cirque: “Fireside”, with Joel Malkoff, Bobby Cookson, and Daniel Stefek, and “La Morte d’un Cerf-Volant”, with Clara Prezzavento (Co. Luisina&Clara), a 30-minute alternative circus piece where the only circus element used was one German Wheel.
Luisina&Clara went on to perform their show at Aloft in Chicago, IL (US) and in November 2019 they premiered the full-length version of “La Morte d’un Cerf-Volant” at Banfield Teatro Ensamble in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Luisina&Clara performed at the Buenos Aires’s International Independent Circus Festival (FICI), and in 2020 they joined Circo Lokomotiv’s summer street shows in the coast of Buenos Aires.
At the moment, Luisina is participating in the role of actress in ZOÓPERA! -a theatrical piece via live streaming that explores the virtual medium- premiered on April 30th 2022 by Compañía Banfield Teatro Ensamble. The company is also working on a new stage show, Leviatán, which will premiere on July 3rd 2022.
