Resting B*tch Face

Presented by Common Thread Circus in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

A cheeky, fearless and strong all-female circus production.

Four women not afraid to make a statement, throw shade at the modern world in this gutsy, high-energy circus production. Witnesses to a generation of YouTubers, Instafamous stars, ‘leaning in’ and ‘having it all’, they find a common thread in the tension between their internal and external lives.

Defiantly tackling stereotypes, these women examine the different faces they present to the world in their professional and personal lives. Through group acrobatics and aerials this comedic, thought-provoking show investigates social expectations.

As they say, “smiling gives you wrinkles, resting bitch face keeps you pretty.”


"The women are strong and sure and fast. They tumble and roll at lightning-fast speed. There are a lot of curious and interesting group acro-balances, feet placed upon chests and backs…the performers are comfortable and intimate with each other, and claim the space with confidence.”
