Circus Wednesdays: Strong Lady
Wednesday 22 August 2018 11:00 - 15:00 to 11:00 - 15:00
Wednesday 22nd August - Performances at 11am & 2pm
The world of the Strong Lady is filled with dazzling contrasts: muscle and grace, beauty and brute strength, lifting the hearts of the audience and... well... lifting the audience!? A genuine strong woman, Betty Brawn presents an elegant array of feats of strength: she breaks things, lifts men overhead as if they were feathers and gives your laughing muscles a workout. You will walk away smiling from this wholehearted celebration of femininity and strength.
This event is part of the Coasters project.
Supported by Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Fund, Coasters is a three year project that brings world-class circus and street arts work to coastal towns across England.
SeaChange Arts lead a consortium of 10 organisations with the shared ambition of building relationships with audiences in areas of lower engagement and helping transform perceptions of coastal towns.
Coasters will see top quality UK and international circus and street arts work programmed in events and festivals around the coast of England. Each Coasters partner will work with their own local partners to build audiences among the lowest engaged, while the project will also look to increase visitor audiences to each location.
Brilliant, exciting, engaging, entertaining and accessible, the work presented will be programmed with the coast in mind – resonant and reflective of coastal locations and audiences.
