Damian Pranay Werner was born June 21st, 1991 in Maintal, Germany.
In 2004 he joined a circus group in school and started to make his first contact with the Diabolos. It was quickly obvious that he had a special passionate connection with them and practiced for at least four hours every day. After two years he started to teach the Diabolo to the circus group himself. Soon afterwards, Pranay quit all his other freetime activities to fully concentrate on the Diabolo. In High School Pranay joined the School Varieté and travelled to Juggling Conventions all over Europe where he learned to juggle with different props (Balls, Clubs, Sporthocker) and made his first solo Performances on stage.
While finishing school in 2011 Pranay did his first professional Varieté contract with the Diabolos in Frankfurt am Main (Neues Theater Höchst) with great success.
»A Newcomer Artist from Frankfurt is the audience favorite on the Autumn-Variete Show at the ›Neues Theater‹. His Diabolo-Shows excites young and old.«
Since then, self-taught Diabolo performer Pranay delights the audience as a professional Artist all over Europe (Switzerland, Spain, Monaco, Finnland, Denmark, Liechtenstein, England etc.) in Circuses, Varietes, Galas and other Events. He has performed in Canada, South America, Asia and Australia.
He won several Circus Prizes such as the Bronze Star at the Young Stage Festival in Basel, Switzerland, for modern Circus Art, the Silver Clown and two special prizes at the New Generation Festival of Monte Carlo and a special Prize at the Festival »Le grand Cirque« in Canada (under the direction of Eugene Chaplin, Son of Charly Chaplin). He was featured in the »Planet Diabolo DVD« among the Best Diabolo Artists in the World representing Germany.
In 2015 Pranay performed at the most prestigious Stage in the world: The world famous International Circus Festival of Monte Carlo, where he was able to win a special Prize. This Festival (which is led by Princess Stephanie of Monaco) is by now broadcasted in more than 50 countries. At the following »New Generation« Festival of Monte Carlo for young artists, Pranay was invited to be a member of the jury led by Princess Stephanies daughter Pauline.
