Born in Germany and raised in England, Lou now lives in Brisbane with her 4 year old child. Heavily tattooed and standing 5 foot and 11 inches, Lou is a striking sight in the air, on a trapeze or web rope, not to mention on the street. Lou has been much noted for her strength and grace particularly performing cordelisse [a form involving poses on a vertical rope]. Lou has performed at numerous cabarets, parties, nightclubs, and festivals throughout Europe and Australia. Lou recalls many odd happenings during the course of her busy career in circus, including performing in Berlin on the end of a crane as riot police marched in.
