The Iron Maiden (VIC, Australia)


1 Oct 2018 - 31 Dec 2021

Short Synopsis
Circus strong woman collides with 80s tribute act in an explosion of circus, strength and silliness.

Most people have heard of the traditional circus "Strong Man" but have no idea what it's like to be a modern circus strong man, or a circus strong woman for that matter. As society moves away from archaic traditions, so does the circus. So who is the modern strong woman? And what happens when we take her out of the circus and put her on her own?

Going it alone is never an easy feat. A fact circus performer/strong woman Hannah Cryle learns as she embarks on a neon technicolour journey of circus, lip-synching, head banging and several costume changes…alone. The Iron Maiden is a funny and heart-warming show that sees Hannah exploring the notion of what it takes to be strong and brave, especially for a woman. She’ll awe and delight you with her feats of strength, aerial chains, skipping, hula-hoops and leave you chuckling with her quick-witted stage banter.
