Michael Olivares and Helena Polach are each part of the 4th generation of families of artists.
Michael started training as an acrobat from the age of
5 years. He also trained in juggling and comedy.
Despite great success in each of these disciplines,
he kept a fascination for air performance: he decided, 12 years ago now, to train with straps. Soon he played with different partners around the world, until he came across Helena’s road and fell in love with him at first sight. They then decided to create a common air number, but changing the rules of use: usually, the man wears the woman; now, with the Duo Olivares, it’s the woman who wears the man!
