Aerialist/choreographer Ilona Jäntti and architect/animator Tuula Jeker founded Ilmatila in 2007.

The company produces contemporary circus performances that combine aerial acrobatics and other circus techniques with other art forms such as animated projections, contemporary dance and live music. Many of the company’s performances also have a strong site-specific or site-responsive aspect.

Their first performance, Muualla/Elsewhere, has been touring since 2009 in circus and dance festivals in Europe, USA and Panama.

In total the company has created 16 performances: 10 works for stage and 6 site-specific productions.
