StrongWomen Science

by Circus250 Presents

physical-theatre-and-circus, children-and-family

StrongWomen Science is a new circus science show starring two women scientists turned circus performers.

about the production

Ever wanted to know how you balance a chair on your chin, if you can juggle liquid, or how circus performers eat fire? StrongWomen Aoife and Maria reveal the scientific secrets behind their astounding tricks. In a fun, lively and fast-paced family circus performance (followed by workshops), learn how jugglers, acrobats and hula hoop artists use science to create their amazing acts. StrongWomen Science seeks to promote enquiry, inventiveness and accessibility in science, and also looks at the worth of failure and the power of teamwork, both shared by science and circus. Because when science meets circus, anything’s possible.

about the artist

Circus250 co-ordinated over 600 events UK and Ireland-wide in 2018 to celebrate 250 years of circus. We now run our own productions which were developed as a result of interest and enthusiasms during the year, including StrongWomen Science, a new circus science show for families. StrongWomen Science stars two women scientists turned circus performers (Maria was an environmental scientist, Aoife an engineer).
