Spirited and striking, Hyena is an innovative, synchronised display of strength from Alula Cyr, the first all-female Cyr trio. With precision and poignancy, Hyena marries awe-inspiring Cyr wheel skill, acrobatics, song and dance to reveal the fierce and complex friendships between the three artists. Renowned for their innovative approach to creating structures with Cyr wheels to handstand on, tumble through and use as a tightwire, Alula Cyr are a phenomenon. Hyena is their debut full-length work.
Formed in 2014 by three multi-skilled circus women, London based Alula Cyr creates exciting work inspired by their shared obsession with the Cyr wheel and passion to perform material with a message. Using their individual skills in artistic gymnastics, contemporary dance and live music they began exploring their trio potential at The National Centre for Circus Arts in 2012. As a female collective their focus is to strengthen and unite women and young girls by engaging them in contemporary circus.
Hyena is presented as a part of Spotlight UK Circus.
Co-produced and developed in association with Jacksons Lane (where they are Associate Artists), The Point and SeaChange Arts.
