An all-female Viking circus spectacular!

After a sellout run at Circus Arts, SHIELD MAIDENS is back, transforming the Brunswick Picture House into the Great Hall of the Vikings this solstice. Join us for a romp into the pagan celebration of an all-female Viking tribe!

Gather your tribe and see you there, skol!


Shield Maidens is an all-female circus spectacular that tells a story of a tribe of Viking women, their conflicts and battles, using acrobatics, aerial and fire to create a breathtaking experience. The women unapologetically inhabit an incredibly strong archetype — the dark force of the divine mother — her look wild with the passion of killing and ultimately, survival.

Show creator Alex Frith’s skills developed during a long career directing ground-breaking shows in Europe and the UK. His style is fast-paced and punchy with strong images and theatre effects. His unique mix of choreography and circus makes for high entertainment and Shield Maidens is no exception.

Leather-clad women spin on ropes, wield large axes and create a Viking world of harsh pagan landscape assisted by a dose of sequins and glitter to create a very engaging aesthetic. While safe in their seats, the audience is able to be close to the action, says Alex. “This is an immersive experience and you will feel like a part of the Viking world.

The show is an 18+ performance so leave the kids at home and liberate your Viking spirit. While not explicit or overtly violent, it is directed toward adults in the spirit of a great party.”
