Since starting dance at an early age, Lyra has never stopped moving. With a background in theater, ballet, and pole vaulting, her style is as novel as it is versatile. In her teens, she found circus and quickly leveraged her strength and flexibility into aerial performance. Now living in San Francisco, she continues her training with world-renowned coaches between performances. Described as ‘if Batman were a Ballerina’, Lyra stuns viewers with her strength, charisma, and grace.
Lyra has performed independently and collaboratively across the United States, and is a regular cast member with the Vespertine Circus in San Francisco. She specializes in immersive experiences of all sizes, her favorites including elements of audience interaction and improvisation. She loves the challenge of site-specific storytelling - whether an intimate, underground, 90s-rave Romeo and Juliet or a giant, pyrotechnic festival show.
As she steps into the stage, the audience joins her narrative and feels a part of the show. From confidence to seduction to surprise, her power of expression cuts through to the heart of the crowd. She defies the limits of imagination with her audacious stunts - from riding her motorcycle into the theater and handbalancing on it to spinning mind-blowingly fast off of structural art.
