Formed in 2014 by three multi-skilled circus women; Fiona Thornhill, Jessica Ladley and Lil Rice, London based Alula Cyr creates exciting modern work inspired by their shared obsession in the Cyr wheel and passion to perform material with a message. Using their solo foundation skills in artistic gymnastics, contemporary dance and live music they began exploring their trio potential at The National Centre for Circus Arts in 2012.

Since graduating they have performed across Europe and have become renowned for their innovative and experimental approach to Cyr Wheel, creating structures with the wheels to handstand on, tumble through and use as a tight wire as well as executing synchronised spinning, doubles and triples manoeuvres on a single wheel! The Alula ladies are a female-focused collective that exists to strengthen and unite women and young girls by engaging them in contemporary circus. Their much anticipated debut show HYENA is co-produced by Jacksons Lane theatre, where they are associate Artists, and is the culmination of two years research fusing circus, dance and song. These wild women epitomize their truthful fierce friendship and tribal solidarity with this creation of thrilling physical ritual and a heart-wrenching need to belong.
