Ulf Hampus Jansson was born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden. Hampus’ dream as a child was to be like his father, an actor. It didn’t take long before his dream actually came true. At age 10 he was performing on the most famous stage in Stockholm with a successful theater play. He continued with his love for theater and acting until the age of 20, where he came in touch with contemporary circus, a mix between circus and theater. He fell in love with the art form! After 4 years of intense acrobatics and stage training in Montreal, Canada, he joined Cirque du Soleil to perform solo acts in 3 different shows, “Dralion,” “Varekai” and “ONE”. Hampus is now a freelance performer.
