Masha Terentieva (born St.Petersburg, Russia, 1987) is a contemporary circus artist, innovator and creator whose work explores character, movement and emotion on stage.
Masha has showcased her acts on the stages of Sydney Opera House, Radio City Music Hall of New York, Kremlin State Theatre in Moscow, the Hippodrome Casino in London West End, underground clubs (The Box, NY and London), Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, Chamäleon Theatre and Wintergarten Variété in Berlin, as well as Spiegeltents, big tops, arenas and cruise ships.
Her acts are sensual in their simplicity and daring in their attitude. As a director she is focused on refining visual narrative and dramaturgy to produce sublime and poetic images that fuel character development.

In 2013 she played on Broadway in an acclaimed run of the Tony Award Winning musical Pippin, with a circus concept directed by 7 Fingers.
In 2015 Masha directed her first show in San Francisco, CA in an intimate collaboration with Circus Automatic. She has also acted as assistant director with Brix Productions (2014), and dance captain with Short Round Productions (2016).
In January 2017 she competed with Aerial Hotel Cart in the prestigious Festival Mondial De Cirque Du Demain, and was awarded 5 prizes including the overall Bronze medal, and the Cirque Du Soleil prize for Performance and Artistic Vision.
