STRONG ENOUGH is a powerfully optimistic outdoor show that uses circus physicality, comedy and feats-of-strength to celebrate stories of finding strength in unexpected places.
A circus Strong Lady will enthral you with the stories she has collected from a huge range of ordinary people, about a time when they were strong – and the soundtrack is wonderfully peppered with their voices. Through circus skills, feats of strength and storytelling we revel in the strength we find and build when we are at our edge.
Building on 20 years of touring the world as a Strong Lady, this new show from Strong Lady Productions is surprising, funny and full of hope… an optimistic declaration that we are STRONG ENOUGH!
STRONG ENOUGH will premiere and tour in 2021 as part of the Without Walls program. It is created with key collaborator Charlotte Mooney / Ockham’s Razor and sound designer Matt Eaton. I have worked with coaches Connor Wild + Farid Herrera+ Arielle Lauzon in
developing physical skills for the work. Costume by Claire Ashley.
The stories and physicality of Strong Enough draw heavily from the indoor circus-theatre show POWER, which premiered in 2020 and was created with director Emma Bernard (alongside Ockham’s Razor, Matt Eaton and Gabbie Cook).
Strong Enough is a commission of Without Walls, Hat Fair and Just So Festival. The creation been kindly supported by Metal Culture, Out There Arts, Worthing Theatres and 101 Creation Space.
