Hannah is a strong woman, acrobat, aerialist, base, clown, street performer and teacher. Circus is her life.
The Big Wheel Show
The show with a big personality, Hannah has brought her friend Cornelius the massive German Wheel to the street. A show of circles, you’ll see Hannah contorting herself through rings, spinning and rolling through the wheel and engaging audiences with her affable personality and light-hearted banter. A show that seriously runs rings around the competition, your head will spin while your hands turn rounds of applause.
A multi-award winning circus performer, and a rare solo female street act, Hannah’s unique skills are a sight to behold. Separating herself from the pack after graduating from the National Institute of Circus Arts, Hannah has trained in Spain and Canada and performed her street-show all around the world. But, you’ll find, dazzling and death defying are all in a day’s work for Hannah.
What does is take to be a modern day strong woman? Training, focus, confidence, a hell of a lot of hairspray and for some reason, a step ladder.
Circus strong woman collides with 80s tribute act in an explosion of circus, strength and silliness.
Melbourne Fringe 2016 BEST CIRCUS Nominee
Take me down to Paradise City. This is a high velocity, hilarious, head banging, love affair with classic 80s rock, and spangly costumes. Hannah Cryle is charming and engaging, getting side splitting input from her volunteers, while effortlessly drawing the entire audience in to share in her joyful exploration of this popular song.
