This is circus with a twist -- raucous,
sexy and laugh out loud fun with a
capital F. Multifarious and dynamic,
the show uses dance, acrobalance,
acrobatics and aerial skills to dismantle
homogenous images of women
in society and in traditional circus.
Individual quirks of the performers are
revealed as the show unfolds. A bad
hair avenger spins wildly out of control.
Stories from the steamy hot seat reveal
the darker sides of submission and
the highlights of de ance. The physical
intimacy of circus is contrasted with
the functional workings of acrobatics,
and the performers reveal the trust and
strength which underpins it all.
