Deadly Knife Throwing Act

Deadly Knife Throwing Act
Most husbands don’t spend their days throwing knives at their wives, but Alfredo and Anna Silva are not your average couple. The masterminds behind the knife-throwing performance, they have audiences and judges too nervous to watch their act – it says something when even the hardened Simon Cowell is too anxious to watch.
But performing under stress is what Alfredo Silva knows best. Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil and raised “everywhere”, he is the sixth generation of a circus family. Mastering his mind and overcoming fear would prove to be even more valuable skills when Alfredo met his future wife, and woman he would eventually spend his days throwing knives at. Alfredo and Anna met in Germany when she was the new dancer in the show. Russian Anna started dancing at the age of four and is a professional ballerina and choreographer.
Anna and Alfredo went from a professional couple to one in real life too, and in 2008 they took their magic act and Globe of Death to the Great Moscow Circus in Australia.
