En 1999, Viktor Kee intègre la production Dralion du Cirque du Soleil. Depuis lors, son art atteint une nouvelle dimension. Il est un maître incontesté du jonglage au niveau mondial.
Viktor Kee, Ukrainian born juggler, has been performing on stage since he was six years old. A graduate of the professional Circus School in Kiev, he has won awards at most of the world’s major circus festivals including Cirque de Demain in Paris and the International Circus festival in Monte Carlo.
A favorite with audiences around the world, Viktor has performed at the Moulin Rouge, Lido de Paris, the Friedrichstadtpalast in Berlin, the Mirage, and the MGM Grand with Barbra Streisand in Las Vegas, Teatro Zinzanni in Seattle, the Royal Albert Hall in London, and around the world with Cirque du Soleil’s “Dralion”, “Voyage de La Vie” Singapore and currently in Cirque du Soleil’s “Amaluna”.
In the development of Viktor’s career he has stood on the shoulders of his forefathers in the juggling world. He has pushed the level of artistic expression in juggling to new levels. For Viktor, the world of movement and object manipulation is not only external, but also a physical manifestation of the internal emotional world. It is an ephemeral event that begs to be experienced viscerally as much as visually.
Viktor has developed a unique, mesmerizing style of juggling. A style of performance that melds dance, acrobatics and juggling into a wondrous ballet of sensuality.
Viktor has established the Viktor Kee Foundation, a non-profit charity which raises funds through special performances and educational events. The Foundation was created through the “Help Ukraine” project, (www.helpukraineproject.com) in which Viktor drove across the United States raising funds to support families that have been devastated by the tragedy in his homeland. The Foundation also has the goals of promoting juggling as art for children’s circuses, funding education in the circus arts for needy children and supporting juggling magazine and book publications. All of the proceeds from Viktor’s Special Masterclass hosted by the Portland Juggling Festival will be donated to the Foundation.
