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 writer and performer with indelible tenacity.
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), Rouge, 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 has a solid command of her instrument.
A desire to write original music caused Christine to depart from the genre.
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 vocal performance.
In 2014, Christine went on to complete a professional aerial course with Aerial Angels whilst performing full time with her singing lyra “Chandelier” act and singing a classical piece “Carmina Burana” whilst simultaneously performing in a two-point harness.
Christine released Wonderfully Terrible Things as an EP however the music and shows took a back seat as Ibrahim continued working on other productions as a feature act and lead vocalist.
The lockdown in Sydney in 2020 prompted Christine to self produce and reprise the show in a larger than life way with a cast of 12 to an audience capped at 50 a s a labour of love.
The show sold out and has not stopped since... A perfect example of a Wonderfully Terrible Thing.
Currently Christine tours with Wonderfully Terrible Things, Rouge and is in pre production writing for two shows set to be released in 2024.
