Small, skinny and wiry, the very opposite of an archetypal Viking. Extensive physical and slapstick skills, an aptitude for challenging harness and aerial work, rope and climbing skills. The performer would either require these or have a very strong aptitude and training in a related discipline.

The heartthrob of the class. Strong, sleek, slender and powerful body. Very competitive, determined, and fearless with a big heart. This central role requires high level acrobatic and tumbling skills, and ideally aerial skills corde and exceptional movement qualities.
STOIK – Leader of the Vikings
