Aliona Marchenko

Born in 1980 in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine. While still at school, she was a soloist with the youth jazz orchestra "Metronome" and won prizes at national and international singing competitions and festivals. From 1997-2001 she graduated from the Dnepropetrovsk State Theater and Arts College with a degree in acting and also received a qualification in academic vocal and stage language. In 1995, the song "Ukraine", which she composed and performed, became the anthem of the All-Ukrainian Aerospace Organization "Constellation" and in 1997 the official anthem of the flight of the first Ukrainian cosmonaut into space. She received an award from the President of Ukraine, presented by the theater and art college where she studied. In 1999 she received a nominal presidential scholarship as the best student of the year. In 2001, she signed a contract with the Russian State Circus Company as a composer and co-director of musical numbers and as an actress and singer in the circus show "Water Fairy". The show toured Ukraine, Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, France and Latvia from 2001 to 2006. In June 2006, together with her husband, she decided to found the creative show-theater project "Breath" in Ukraine, which in 2009 will create the first pixel LED show combining theater, dance art and high technology. The shows became winners of many talent shows in Ukraine, USA, China and Europe. The company also organizes large-scale events, corporate and private vacations throughout Ukraine.
