New Show – Power
Charmaine Childs is a circus Strong Lady. Come and see her performing incredible feats of strength with her signature mix of muscle, comedy and elegance. It is optimistic, uplifting, funny, physical and moving.
POWER is a new work that combines circus physicality, voice-over soundtrack and storytelling – it uses the physical
strength of the performance to amplify the inner strength in real people’s stories. Using stories recorded by people talking
about their experiences of feeling strong and powerful.
These stories are the heart of the work. Their stories intersect with the autobiography of a Strong Lady wrestling with uncertainty.
Initially striving to feel powerful, by being invincible and in control, the show finds its way to accepting the mess of uncertainty and finding strength in the places where we wobble.
Trading invincibility for resilience, it celebrates the power we have to choose the next step through the mess.
Audiences leave the show energised and hopeful, considering the story of strength they would tell if I
interviewed had them – or better yet, they start telling it.
