CIRCUS THEATRE!

CircusWest has the honour of a mini-residency at the brand new North Delta Centre of the Arts this week — where we are trying some new ideas, blending projections with circus and developing new circus content / show concepts for 2022, 2023 and beyond.
The black box theatre was constructed during the pandemic and CircusWest was at the grand opening in April with shows and workshops — amongst an awesome lineup of Delta community arts groups and performers.
We look forward to many performances and collaborations with North Delta in years to come — as the theatre sits in the middle of Surrey, Ladner, Delta, White Rock, Tsawwassen, and South Delta — and will attract new audiences.
Tomorrow is our final day of dreaming, creating, experimenting in the theatre — and we thank the City and the theatre for the opportunity.
They say ‘all the world’s a stage’ — and we’ve found one of our favourites in North Delta. It is spectacular!
Bravo!

FUN ALL AROUND!

What an amazing weekend we had @constellationfestival leading workshops, staging shows and roving throughout the day.
It was a thrill to be at the event amongst the amazing lineup of musicians, artists and festival attendees after a two year hiatus due to the pandemic.
Here, Ruth performs Iso Rings to live music and to a live audience full of children and families.
We made new friends, inspired many to learn to juggle, danced to awesome live music and shared our circus passions with Sea to Sky country.
We look forward to next year with bigger shows, musical collaborations and creating new artistic circus constellations with the festival and the amazing community it has inspired.

ENCORE!

What a wonderful Sunday in the Park!

CircusWest was part of the inaugural Opera in the Park at Burnaby’s Deer Lake as thousands of onlookers celebrated the arts, opera, circus and food trucks galore.
CircusWest was on hand doing roving performances and two shows in the afternoon in the open air and audiences built as the show continued and the day wore on.
We look forward to future collaborations with Vancouver Opera this year and into the future.
Thank you to the City of Burnaby for staging this weekend of events featuring the VSO, Vancouver Opera — and indirectly CircusWest! We look forward to bringing Circus In The Park for years to come!
