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, find out how jugglers, acrobats and hula hoop artists use science to create their amazing acts.

StrongWomen Science doesn’t only illustrate scientific facts. It seeks to promote enquiry, inventiveness and accessibility in science, making it open to all, in particular young women and girls. In addition to demonstrating scientific principles in fun and accessible ways, it looks at the worth of failure and the power of teamwork, both shared by science and circus.


The Development of the show was supported by: The Royal Institute of Physics, The Royal Institute of Chemistry and the UK Arts Council.

This is a Circus250 production and has toured extensively since 2018. Highlights include Abu Dhabi Science Festival, Buckingham Palace and Edinburgh Science Festival.

Beryl is a vivacious old woman with plenty of tricks up her sleeve. This 97 year old coffin-dodger will whizz around on her unicycle and perform perilous tricks on her zimmerframe. A Vaudeville star back in her day, she now has to take things at a gentler pace, but don't be fooled by her frailty, she still has plenty of power and pizzaz. She thinks life is too short to be taken seriously and will insist you behave accordingly.

The development of this character has been supported by Dublin Circus Project, Dance Ireland, Spraoi Festival and ISACS.
