S I L I K A Contortion is a Toronto based Contortionist, Hand Balancer, and pole dancer. At age 14 Silika was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Seeking a practice to free her from chronic pain and transcend her body's limitations, she found her home in contortion and circus arts. A self-taught artist and born from years of deep ritual and meditation. Her chosen stage name SILIKA, is an element abundant in the earth's crust and represents energy, flexibility and resilience - all elements that have been her ally in pushing past her obstacles.
Silika has been performing for over eight years. In 2018 she traveled to Mongolia to study at their international school for circus arts.

SiLiKa grew up in Montreal and had a strong passion to be a healer. She studied 5 years as a special aids worker and social worker. But plans quickly changed when she discovered healing through deep stretching. She pursued her passion endlessly and became a self taught contortionist and never turned back.
SiLika is now a contortionist, acrobat, and dancer of Toronto and Montreal. SiLiKa discovered healing through contortion combined with meditation. The process began while sitting in contorted postures for three hours daily over the course of six months. As her techniques evolved, SiLika began infusing breath work into her repertoire to promote a relaxed state which ultimately lead to healing. SiLiKa weaves various forms of tribal dance and contortion that resonate with her unique path to self-liberation. She now has the privilege to be training with Canada's Got Talent's top contender, Aygul Memet, and includes skilled techniques used in traditional Mongolian practices.

Influences & Inspiration
My work is inspired by the traditional Mongolian Techniques of Contortion. I have been personally inspired by my mentor Aygul Memet, Canada's Got Talents top contender, who trained at the Mongolian Circus school for 8 years of her life and performed all over the world. In February 2018 I traveled to the o Mongolia to train at their international school for contortion arts. My aim is to inspire people to pursue their dreams!
