Strong Enough is a powerfully optimistic show that uses circus physicality, comedy and feats-of strength to celebrate stories of finding strength in unexpected places.

About Strong Enough

Strong Enough is a powerful celebration of finding strength in unexpected places.

This circus Strong Lady has collected stories of strength from a huge range of ordinary people – asking them the question: ‘can you tell me about a time when you were strong’. Their stories are told with a playful mix of circus physicality, comedy and feats of strength.

You know that feeling, when you are right at your edge and you aren’t sure if you are strong enough to take the next step? It is exactly in those moments, where we are at our edge and wobbling, that we find strength we didn’t know we had – and build strength we didn’t have before. These stories reveal moments of resilience, adapting, determination and powerful choices.

Funny, physical and full of hope – this show is an optimistic declaration that we are STRONG ENOUGH!
