Saulo Sarmiento (Britain’s Got Talent alumnus) is an international acrobat and award-winning aerial artist for Cirque du Soleil. He talked about his proudest moments and latest accomplishments.

Former US Army General and former Secretary of State Colin Powell once said, “A dream doesn’t become a reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” Saulo Sarmiento is the man and performer who epitomizes this wise quote.

Sarmiento was born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in 1987. He was an active child, with big dreams and goals. One of them was supposed to become an acrobat and work with the best companies in the world. Show business is his forte.

At the age of 12 he saw the Cirque du Soleil/Franco Dragone: Alegría DVD show and that day he decided he wanted to be an acrobat and the rest is history. “Cirque du Soleil was good,” he admitted. “From the age of 12 it was my dream, and now it’s my job.”

“I was so enamored with this DVD and it inspired me to start a solo project,” he said. “Very good company, good working conditions. The shows are good and the level and quality of the shows are top notch. But they are heavy, physically and mentally. It’s like a competition every time and you have to be 100 percent every time.”

Of his daily motives, Sarmiento said: “I am very lucky to be able to do what I do, especially during the pandemic, at a time when it has affected the arts and entertainment. What I really like about my job is that it gives me the opportunity to travel. I love to travel and my job allows me to do it all the time.”

He is a specialized pole acrobat. Working with my solo number is my business, but I also participate in the creation process with ideas. He has a dance experience that helps him in his performances and creations; in addition, he has extensive experience in performing on stage.

Sarmiento teaches all over the world, holds master classes and performs in many cities. He’s all about helping people improve and improve their lives. He represents positivity and hope, he is the heart and soul of the Canary Islands.

He talked about being a performer in the digital age. “Social media is at least 60 percent of your promotion, if not more. I use it as a very important tool,” he said. “I understand that my followers want to see more of my personal life than my work. They like to see what I’m doing behind the scenes.”

For young and emerging acrobats and artists, he said: “It is very important that they take care of their bodies. Taking care of my body is the most important thing. Also, create something you’re really passionate about.”

To the title of the current chapter of his life, Sarmiento replied: “Find a balance and maintain stability. “

Of his experience with Britain’s Got Talent, he said: “It was an experience! To be honest, I did not expect such a success from the show, because I got a call at the last minute. I did my usual act and then it was a super success. People were waiting outside and the video went viral.”

He shared that he worked on the Italian, French and German versions of “Got Talent” in the same year with the same artist.

His audition for Britain’s Got Talent can be seen below.

“Since Britain’s Got Talent I’ve been getting messages every day from people all over the world because this video is still popular,” he said.

“Some people even recognize me in random places,” he added. “Social media is very important. It’s the best marketing tool we have.”

He noted that if he were to participate in any track and field event, he would pole vault. In swimming, he cited “freestyle” as his favorite style. “Freestyle is what I like the most,” he admitted.

When asked what superpower he would have, he said, “Lately, I’d like to be mind-controlled, but I’d also like to fly.”

Sarmiento defined the word “success” as “the opportunity to live and earn money doing what you love in life.” Also, try to stay as happy as possible.”

Sarmiento remarked to his fans and supporters: “I am always very grateful to them. I always get messages of support from them and it means a lot to me when they appreciate and understand all the hard work I put into my performances.”
