Its over 100 years since a Circus was resident in a West End theatre but when The Circus of Horrors rolls into town straight from London West End it will certainly have a hair raising act staring in its latest & greatest phantasmagoria.
Anastasia IV aka Joanna Sawicka is featured in this years Guinness Book of Records 2014 for lifting the greatest weight with the hair which is 53.4 kg (117 lb 11 oz) after she was lifted upside down while holding another person only with her hair on the set of Lo Show Dei Record, in Milan, Italy.
Anastasia realised she had strong hair when she would take on boys at school back home in Poland to a tug of war, pulling the rope solely from her hair.
She came to England to study bio chemistry at the City of Westminster University & during her time in the capitol she went to see The Circus of Horrors and immediately fell in love with the show.
‘From then on I knew I didn’t want to be a Bio Chemist & wanted to run away with the circus, well not just any circus but The Circus of Horrors’ said Anastasia. ‘I applied for a job & told them of my super human hair, they gave me an audition & away I went’.
The Circus of Horrors comes to tje Music Hall on Monday 17 February 2014.
