Helena is an amazingly talented contortionist based in Germany. Seeing her perform live is pure beauty in motion. Her trainer/manager/coreographer, Ska von Schöning, is the top personality the the world of contortion. Ska has put together some of the most beautiful contortion acts worldwide, and has organized the ICC 1998 and the ICC 2000 contortion conventions.  We are all looking forward to ICC 2003.  The CHP is honored that Ska allowed us this exclusive photo shoot with Helena. We hope that these photos will forever mark Helena's place in history as one of the best contortionists. These photos do not do justice to the graceful artistry of her live performances, but we hope that you agree that the beauty Helena creates is still evident in these still images.
