With critics referring to her creations as "inspired" (THE AGE MELBOURNE) and Sydney Sentinel celebrating her “extraordinary vocals in various styles”Christine Ibrahim is a Lead Vocalist, Aerialist, Pianist and indelible force to be reckoned with !

The Cirque Songstress' combination of powerhouse vocals and high level aerial artistry have featured across Australia and internationally including ; Torture Garden (Japan), Draculas Cabaret (Melbourne & Gold Coast), Risqué Revue, The Ashton's Circus, Infamous, Circus Rio, Perth Fringe Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival and The Melbourne Cabaret Festival. 

Originally a classical vocalist and recipient of the Thomas Berry Scholarship, Christine found an unlikely love for alternative Rock music. 

System of a down served as the initial impetus to listen to works by artists other than Mozart and instigated her breaking away from the pure classical art form.

Whilst living on top of a pub in Pitt St, an 18 year old Christine would sneak into the Conservatorium of Music to write on their pianos (at this point the security was rather lack lustre) before going on to complete a Bachelor of Music in Contemporary performance in contemporary vocal performance.

Christine found aerial acrobatics later in her performance career during a residency at The Victoria Room while playing piano and singing with her trio. Within 6 months the former competitive rhythmic gymnast created her first singing aerial act. 

 

In 2014, Christine went on to complete a professional aerial course with Aerial Angels, training for over 30 hours a week while simultaneously performing five nights a week with her singing lyra “Chandelier” act and singing excerpts from “Carmina Burana” during a two-point harness performance. 

Christine began crowdfunding to produce more of her original material including "Stay" in 2020, which is featured in the current production of Wonderfully Terrible Things. 

Christine was one of the first producers to start creating work for artists after the height of the lockdown in Sydney in 2020, reprising the show Wonderfully Terrible Things in a larger than life way with a cast of 12 at The Vanguard Newtown. The show sold out within a week and has sold out since and is continuing in Sydney with dates locked in for Melbourne and The Gold Coast later in the year.
