Charmaine Childs / Strong Lady Productions
I am a Circus Strong Lady. For over 20 years I have been touring internationally to outdoor arts festivals, events, variety shows and theatres as a self producing artist.
My primary work is touring highly physical circus shows that celebrate strength and connection. I create solo shows (Power, Strong Enough, Strong Lady) and as an acrobatic base I create duo and ensemble shows (with partners including Mimbre, Reuben DotDotDot, GOP Variete Theatre and Mario Queen of the Circus). My performance work as a strong lady is always a playful mix of muscle, comedy, optimism and elegance that invites audiences to reflect on their own strength.
I am passionate about the development of physical, mental and emotional strength – and the ways they impact on each other. All my work is dedicated to uplifting and empowering people, creating connection and celebrating diversity. This has lead me to a delightfully wide ranging arts practice that also includes: creative engagement projects (Stories of Strength), event speaking, teaching and workshop facilitating and producing.
I am an Australian-British artist, touring world wide and based between Australia (QLD) and the UK.
