Sagiv Ben BinYamin

Sagiv is an internationally-known circus artist living in Los Angeles. Born in Israel, Sagiv’s gymnastics training started at early age. His passion for performing combined with his growing gymnastics skills, inspiring him to move to the United States where he could study and work in the circus arts. Once in Los Angeles, Sagiv trained with a small group of circus artists in a variety of aerial apparatuses and acrobatics. This soon led to more advanced training at the world-renowned San
Francisco Circus Center.

Sagiv’s natural talent and dedication to the physical demands of circus quickly
paid off. With advanced skills in trapeze and acrobatics, he landed the title role of
Spiderman in Universal Studio’s popular stunt show “Spiderman Rocks” for 3
years. While there he performed motion-capture work for the feature film        Polar Express”. These successes quickly grew into numerous professional shows
across the globe.For more than 15 years, Sagiv has performed as a circus artist
in acrobatics, hand balancing and partner balancing, aerial rope, hoop, dance
trapeze, static trapeze and more. Productions include: Teatro ZinZanni, Cirque
Mechanics, Cirque De La Symphonie, Cirque Production, Cirque du Soleil Special
Events, and Troup Vertigo

Sagiv’s diverse skill set, along with his ability to learn dance and choreography, has also landed him in many musical acts. He performed with Cher’s three-year residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. He was then asked to join Cher’s Dress 2 Kill tour in 2014, where he performed on aerial apparatuses that he designed, and which were unique to the show’s theme and aesthetic. He has also performed at The Grammy Awards, and alongside such artists as Taylor Swift and the Black Eyed Peas, just to name a few.

When he’s not on the road, Sagiv has a second home coaching students at
Cirque School LA. From aerial to acrobatics, hand balancing to act creation,
Sagiv has been an integral part of the school’s success, helping CSLA to
become one of the top circus schools in Southern California. Sagiv’s hard work,
passion and discipline is demonstrated in his large body of work. He performs to
inspire and entertain audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
