Artist bio

Who doesn’t know Ylva Falk already? Her name in Swedish means ‘Wolf Falcon’.
Like an celestial being, Ylva metamorphoses in the beat of a wing. Her face and physique are constantly reinventing themselves, so we ask the question, who is the real Ylva Falk?

Born in a little village in the Swedish countryside, Ylva grew up quickly affirming her difference, seeking to follow her impulses from an early age. In 2007, after years of classical dance, jazz and contemporary dance at various schools. Ylva left her home country at the age of 20 for Paris. There, she concentrated on Hip Hop/break dance under the name of Loba-One.

By innovating and perfecting with letting up, Ylva mixes different style of dance (breakdancing, voguing, popping and contemporary dance), fashions and eras without paying much regard for ‘codes’, rather staying true to herself. She has gone on to work with the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler, Shourouk, Pantheone, Charlie Le Mindu and Andrea Crews…
