CircusWest’s professional production division, VERVE Inspired Circus, has created a new offering for the 2017-18 season entitled FIREFLIGHT—Supernatural Circus. This circus parable tells the tale of a young hummingbird fighting a raging forest fire one drop at a time. Inspired, other animals in the forest assist and through compelling circus artistry help the hummingbird protect their fragile environment.
FIREFLIGHT features graceful aerials, stunning acrobatics, and more contemporary circus arts blending together to weave a theatrical story about the importance of protecting our environment through activism. Lush projections of a low-poly, geometric forest in the Pacific Northwest create the backdrop for this environmental tale of getting involved and taking action to protect what one holds dear.
FIREFLIGHT—Supernatural Circus features BC’s top circus talent in a family friendly 50-minute show aimed at inspiring audiences through a well crafted, awe-inspiring display of human potential of movement, balance, coordination and strength. Witness the mighty eagle soar on aerial straps, the delicate hummingbird balance precariously in handstand atop an old growth tree, and the sneaky raccoon juggling his way through the forest.
FIREFLIGHT is available September 2017 for bookings. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
