The fascinating life story of a young man who, in spite of a physical impairment, has made an international career for himself
"Everything is possible": With perseverance, ambition and a strong will Dergin Tokmak has managed to join the illustrious circle of acrobats in the world-famous Cirque du Soleil – the first German to do so.
Yet the beginnings were anything but auspicious for a career as an artiste. The son of Turkish immigrants is physically impaired in both legs from polio. Yet in spite of this, he started dancing on his crutches. Stix – his stage name – can move on his sticks as no other. As a break-dancer he was a show-stopper and finally moved on to become an international star in the world of acrobatics.
In his book, Dergin Tokmak tells his impressive story, and readers will be infected by his unshakeable will to live. A moving example of mental strength, physical power and belief in oneself.
