"4:18 AM"

“4:18 AM” is an introspective visual album of “Let Them Eat Chaos” by Kae Tempest. This contemporary circus show utilizes set design, movement and text to tell the story of seven sleepless strangers brought together on one sleepless night.

Sierra Rhoades Nicholls directed and produced this show as part of "Circadium Presents : 4:18AM & Chaos Theory" in the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, September 2019.

Here is an artist statement about this act from Sierra:



Sierra's performance of the character, Zoe, in her self directed contemporary circus show "4:18 AM." 

"I Am" Handstand Act

Inspired by imperfection and acceptance, this is one of Sierra's many solo handstand acts. (Performed to "I Am" by Jorja Smith. Sierra does not own the rights to this music.)

4:18 AM Lyra Act

Sierra's original circus love was lyra! This was the act which seeded the inspiration for her full length show "4:18 AM" 

Summer 2019 Tour

In the summer of 2019 Sierra worked with former Cirque du Soleil juggler Kyle Driggs and former Martha Graham dancer, Andrea Murillo. She toured the US with their company 3AM Theatre assisting and performing in their evening length show "Eventide." 

Filmed by Avi PN, this is Sierra's most recent handstand act. She challenged herself to create a piece that was purely motivated by a piece of music and the task of moving to it while upside-down.
