Adrienn Banhegyi performs with Cirque de Soleil, and holds two world records for jump roping. In this attached video she jumped in front of the most beautiful sights of the city. 3.2 million people watched this amazing video already! Daily News Hungary Interview:
Can you tell us how did you managed this amazing video?
It was really a special experience to be back in Budapest, and jump in front of the most beautiful sights of the city. However, the main purpose of the shooting was to introduce a Hungarian Acrobatic Basketball Team – we agreed that if there is time at the end of the day we can shoot a couple of skipping moves as well. We managed to film everything on a late night and a very early morning, to show the most famous parts of the city accompanied with some fast-paced jump roping.
3.2 million people watched this amazing video. Did you expect this incredible success?
I didn’t expect that the video would become so popular and reach millions of views in just a couple of days after it was published. It especially surprised me to receive a lot of attention from the Hungarian media.
After this clip is anything changed in your life?
To be honest, my schedule has not really changed since the video came out; in the last 4 years, I have been performing with Cirque du Soleil on a regular basis, and also have been working with different companies in Europe.
How did you became a Cirque du Soleil star?
A few years ago, after winning World Jump Rope Championships three times and European Championship five times, I decided to focus more on performances, and this is how both me and my sister joined the world of circus performers. I really enjoy being part of the circus world, traveling, learning different languages, meeting plenty of people, is really a very special experience!
