As Betty Brawn, Charmaine has toured 22 countries since 2002 and performed in 6 languages so far. Her work is both skilled and funny, always created to entertain a wide range of audiences and theatrically crafted. She believes in the power of being on stage mixing strength with elegance and confidence with vulnerability. She invites audiences to celebrate who you are now… rather than waiting until you are perfect.
Productions currently on tour: Strong Lady: Charmaine’s solo show as Betty Brawn – the strongest lady alive.
Leap: an acrobatic duo show in collaboration with Reuben DotDotDot
GOP Variete Theatre: Charmaine features in ongoing seasons with the show ‘BackSTAGE’ touring to various German cities until 2018.
As well as touring circus shows, Charmaine performs as an inspirational speaker for events and seminars. ‘Be the Strong Lady in your own Personal Circus’ combines experiences of touring the world as a strong lady with neuroscientific research, to explore mental ‘feats of strength’ that will help you to achieve the impossible… or the simple things in life.
Charmaine studied theatre at university. She also trained in clowning, acrobalance, hand-to- hand acrobatics and physical theatre from various inspiring teachers around the world. She studied street theatre… on the street… with generous coaching from a handful of directors and performers but most importantly, from the audiences she shared her shows with.
