Vanitas Arts Presents the Female Funambulists

In the 250th year of the Circus, the Female Funambulists reimagine the astonishing and dramatic lives of 19th and 20thcentury female circus performers.

Using live theatre, poetry, music and film we will transport you into the Big Top to meet Tiger Tamer Mabel Stark, Woman of Steel Kate Sandwina, Clairvoyant Madame Sosostris, Bee Whisperer Patty Astley and more ……

The Female Funambulists is a collaboration of female artists from diverse disciplines responding to original poetry from Chloe Balcomb
