STRONG LADY is a solo show where ‘Betty Brawn’ presents her array of feats-of-strength with a mix of comedy, strength and elegance. She tears thick books and snaps metal with ease before lifting men from the audience as if they were feathers. Your heart will be lifted and your smile muscles will get a workout.

STRONG LADY is a celebration of the strength of women, the kindness of men and body positivity.

STRONG LADY is a one-woman-show that has toured 22 countries since 2007 and is performed mostly in the language of the audience (French, Spanish, Italian, German, Japanese and English so far). It is a very flexible show that is just as comfortable gathering a crowd of 100 in a small town celebration on the high street as it is with an audience of over 1000 in seating banks at big international festivals.

With a playful mix of strength and grace, Betty Brawn uplifts audiences worldwide with exhilarating feats of strength performed, not in the brutish style of a Strong Man, but with the elegance of a true Strong Lady. Laugh, gasp and be amazed.

The world of the Strong Lady is filled with dazzling contrasts: muscle and grace, beauty and brute strength, lifting the hearts of the audience and… well… lifting the audience!  A genuine strong woman, Betty Brawn tears thick books in half with her bare hands, twists solid metal, snaps steel chains and shatters gender cliches as she performs the Human Carousel – carrying the weight of two gigantic men from the crowd.

“Breathtaking!” Sydney Morning Herald (Newspaper, Australia)

“Spectacular and very special… people are going to be talking about this non stop… I can hardly believe it.”  Jo Whiley, Glastonbury Highlights, BBC TV (Television, UK)

“Betty Brawn shows with indescribable lightness, that she is the Strongest Lady in the World – and elegant too” Hannover Neue Presse (Newspaper, Germany)
