Boisterous, playful and wild, Hyena is a synchronised display of sisterhood, strength and power.
'She is the one who turns like a great wheel. She is the maker of cycles. She is the one we leave home for and come home to. She is the mucky root of all women.'
The first all-female Cyr troupe, Alula's debut Hyena explodes onto the UK Circus scene in a whirlwind of women, wheels, acrobatics, dance and song. These wild women epitomise their fierce friendship and tribal solidarity with this creation of thrilling physical ritual and a heart-wrenching need to belong.
Made by a all-female production team, Hyena is the culmination of three years' research into pioneering new ways of working with one of circus' fastest evolving disciplines.
“A breath-taking fusion of circus, dance and atmospheric effects”
