A rare and super-bright star whose light shifts and varies, enhancing the beauty of the night sky.

Mira is an award-winning contortionist who began her career at youth with the Mongolian National Circus. She has since toured the world, presenting her extraordinary and gravity-defying act to astounded audiences, world leaders, and at private galas. Mira's grace and skill is unsurpassed as she powerfully flows like water through a series of one-and two-hand balances and presses, contortion balances holding on a mouth bit with only her teeth, and extreme back bending. Velocity presents "Mira" as a soloist, duo, or trio contortion act (combined with the Velocity contortionists).

Her extreme artistry is a favorite feature in our national appearances. Mercura is also a respected coach of artistic and rhythmic gymnastics.
