Queensland trapeze artist Lisa Skinner is expected to be discharged from hospital later this week after she fell during a Cirque du Soleil performance in Brisbane.

Ms Skinner, 35, fell five meters from a suspended ring and briefly lost consciousness during the matinee performance of the Kooza show on Sunday.

The former Olympic gymnast complained of back pain and was assessed on stage, treated by paramedics and taken to hospital.

Ms Skinner is well on the road to recovery, the production company's agents said in a statement on Monday.

"We are happy to report that Lisa is currently stable and in good condition. She is expected to leave the hospital within a few days," the statement said.

The show continued after her incident.
