What a wonderful celebration of womanhood!! I was wowed & giggled & surprisingly moved - must be the time of the month -lol. Has inspired me to lift & fling my sisters around a bit - after I’ve built a bit more muscle & I appreciate most of the act should not be attempted at home!! LOVED these talented, funny & yucky women!!

Alice Connolly 103 days ago

YES!! YES!! YESSSSS!!!! Look at what the female body can do!!! Not just a brilliant circus performance but an amazing and hilarious piece of theatre!!! These women are so fearless and so talented!! And the performer (who I'm guessing specialises in clowning) is the FUNNIEST performer I've seen at the Fringe this year!! I'm still laughing!!

No not so good seen better acrobatics and why is menstruation interesting or funny?

Unashamedly fun and joyous show. Crazy laughing from the audience. Wish it was a whole hour...but they packed in comedy, cabaret and circus with great soundtrack in 50mins.

I asked the 'leader' as to why they indulged the male-gaze/repudiated the male-gaze - to which the reply was "We're just having fun with gender!!"

I must admit the "Menopausal Maypole Dance" was a first for me!

An interesting and challenging show, made fun by the enthusiasm and the energy of the performers.

Fun, camp and silly. An easy way to spend an hour with impressive tricks and feminist humour.

Sara Cormeny 108 days ago

Did I know I needed a comedic #metoo circus show? I did not. But I am so glad it was there for me! Funny, snarky, naughty and a delight.

Loved this show - such talented, strong women with a wicked sense of humour. Highly recommend!

I had researched this show and thought it ticked the box of funny, acrobatics etc. Unfortunately I found it very low on the acrobatics (good when they were done). My youngest daughter and her friend didn't enjoy all that much and the age rating is on the low side.

The humour and observation is definitely more adult orientated.

Martin Tuttle 116 days ago

Went to this not knowing what to expect but was more than pleasantly surprised. The acrobatics were great but the comedy was by far the best part. Loved it and would definitely recommend to all

Bridget Burt 116 days ago

Best show we went to this festival! What amazing talent these ladies have. So powerful, original, funny and breathtaking! Still talking today about how fantastic and uplifting we felt after the show! I will definitely be following them on social media and hoping they will continue to come and perform in the Uk . Girl Power !

With all the positive buzz around this show we were all lioking forward to it and although there were some good bits all three of us were underwhelmed some overlong and underfunny clowning sections left us disappointed. There is a good 30 minute show in there.

Leshu Torchin 118 days ago

Excellent show: hilarious, fine acrobatics, and social commentary to boot.
Is it rude if I also say every performer is so hot they are better than HRT?

Marine 119 days ago

Orgasmic show! One of our favorite of the fringe (there are three of us), no contest. Smart, silly and amazingly funny at the same time. It remains an impressive circus show that makes you laugh and think. The whole package!

Colleen 119 days ago

Very entertaining, some very funny performances, there are better acrobats out there bur they don't have the funny sketches, I will never think of menstruation in the same way again. Look out for hula hoop woman, best bit in my opinion

Absolutely amazing show. laughter, awe and thought provoking all in one.

Sabine Maes 120 days ago

My favourite so far! Absolutely loved these women and their original performance, with very strong skills and hilarious pieces about period and (alpha) men. We had a fantastic time! They were also super nice afterwards!

A beautifully flourishing performance. You will see the “lads” and lassies in full bloom. It’s true size does not matter it is what you do with it that counts. The performance goes from strength to strength. The show does not disappoint with a motivational bunch of performers. Truly powerful.

Tom Roehricht 121 days ago

Hugely entertaining even (especially) with all the “man” jokes. Very skilful. Very funny. Very irreverent. A must see event.

Fiona Brown 122 days ago

Funny, irreverent, highly skilled and very likeable. I really enjoyed this show. Be prepared for period jokes and Macho- man teasing, all in good spirit.

The show ended with a well-earned standing ovation and I imagine it does every day as it should. This show is an exhilarating fusion of comedy and circus that is unmissable.
