  • Calgary Mercury Opera

    This past Saturday evening was Mercury Opera’s Calgary production of Fiamma! and the event went off with a bang! This year Safire Entertainment provided a four person troupe fire show as well as our Fire Bird stilt walker. This year’s event was held at the beautiful Old City Hall which was the perfect backdrop and set for three amazing opera singer’s who sung from high up in the balcony.

    “It was a cornucopia of art and performance; a whimsical feast of culture for the senses, explosive vocal virtuosity combined with fiery spectacle designed to take away the autumn chill and heat up Downtown Calgary’s urban landscape. We were the first to see the unveiling of MOCA’s fall programming- beginning with Made in Calgary: 1980s Part 2 as well as installations by famed Max Streicher and Dave Dyment in the hippest pop-culture event of fall 2013.”  – Mercury Opera

    Here are some photos from the evenings event.

  • Fire Dancer with Three Fire Hula Hoops

    Safire’s skills as a fire dancer have increased dramatically over the years as she pushes and challenges the limits of contemporary fire dance. At first a single fire hoop seemed impossible, and then perhaps could two fire hoops be possible? Now after years of training, three fire hoops at once is in fact possible!  She finally got the chance to try tipple fire hooping for the first time at Hoop Convergence 2010 using Synnergy Fire Hoops. Check out this video on YouTube to see Safire’s very first time Triple Fire Hooping.

    The video below was capture in the Fall of 2012.

  • Fire Performer at Stollery Children’s Hospital Snowflake Gala

    Just got home from the Stollery Children’s Hospital Snowflake Gala. The event was amazing! This year’s theme was Circus Carnival and they were keen to have a fire performer for the event. Safire Dance provided roving Fire Eating as well as a stage fire show before the evening’s dinner began. We also brought to the events festivities Juggling, LED Hula Hooping, stilt walking and balloon twisting! I’ll have some pictures and video up from the event in a few days.

    One of the evening’s highlights for me was getting to perform inside a circus ring on the main stage! The decor at the Shaw Conference Center was phenomenal!

  • Fire Eater Photoshoot

    While attending aerial classes through FireFly Theatre I stayed with some friends in Edmonton. One of those friends is the lovely Amberlynn Walker; a talented freakshow performer from Insane-Entertainment. Amber is quite the creative muse, she’s always full of ideas and will have many projects on the go at once. She has many artistic skills including but not limited to painting, costume design, performance and photography. Here’s a few photos we captured the other day in her studio called The “Where” House. If you’d ever like to learn how to fire eat, her boyfriend Ryan Stock offers professional fire eating courses through their studio. Check out their website at  Insane-Entertainment for more information, or watch his Facebook page Stock at Large to keep in touch about when another workshop will happen.

  • Aerialist Training in Edmonton

    Learning to be an aerialist is proving to be one my hardest challenges to date. For the past few weeks I’ve been up in Edmonton taking training from FireFly Theatre. I took several aerial classes from them years ago in 2008 when they were using space in a gymnastic studio and boy is their new studio space amazing!!

    The classes have been a huge challenge for me both mentally and physically but thankfully all the teachers are spectacular and the energy there is really positive and uplifting. If I’m struggling with a move there is undoubtably always someone there to cheer me on. Everyone in each class is so supportive of each other and I’m sad to already be half way through the 6 week courses. I don’t really know what my plans are with aerial or if I’ll ever feel that I’m good enough to perform. I’m trying to live by my own advice and “love the process”; to focus on enjoying the experience of this new challenge without placing expectations on my progress.

    If you ever get the desire to tone up and turn upside down, go see FireFly and sign up for some classes!

  • Trade Show Entertainment – Calgary Tattoo Festival

    In October I provided roving and stage trade show entertainment for the Calgary Tattoo Festival. Here’s more photos from my show at this year’s Calgary Tattoo Festival. These images were captured by Elizabeth Joyal. In addition to fires shows I also provided roving stilt walking and roving hula hooping to help entertain guests on the trade show floor. My favorite was definitely the roving hula hooping as I was able to perform for people who were actually getting tattooed. Many of them were very thankful and smiled at the opportunity to enjoy a fun distraction from the physical feeling of being tattooed.
