A Hair-culian woman who has lifted some of the greatest weights with the power of her hair this week put on another Incredible live display of her skills on the streets of Central London. The above video is exclusive footage displaying her unique skills during training for what she achieved this week and it clearly highlights how truly unique she is… if you are squeamish, you may want to have your hands ready to hold on to your own hair, or cover your eyes from the thought of doing it yourself.
(quite clearly, we do not advise anyone to try this… this lady is both a trained expert and also extremely brave!)
Anastasia IV, as she is popularly known is a sideshow performer, currently performing as part of the well-known ‘Circus of Horrors’ group.
For her latest hair-stounding display which showcased her own unique ability as well as also acting as a publicity stunt promoting the current show in London for ‘Circus of Horrors’ involved pulling a 2.5 ton Hearse along Shaftesbury Ave in Central London with only her golden locks. Her hair had a hook plated into it & she managed to pull the the vehicle over a distance of over 20 meters within the space of 4 minutes.
Circus of Horrors performer Anastasia IV 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.”
People may recall the ‘Circus of Horrors’ group from their appearance on ITV’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ in 2011 when they reached the semi-final stages.
The Circus of Horrors is currently Wowing audiences in The Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Ave where it has become the first Circus to appear in a West End Theatre for over 100 years.
