Had an awesome weekend at the Brooks Medieval Faire when we were requested to provide medieval performers for the weekends festivities! Provided Kids circus workshops with the kids, stilt walking, fire shows and roving contact juggling. The event was awesome, the people were really friendly and the jousting was epic! On the saturday night the Festival has a feast with the King and Queen, group dancing, delicious food, mead, and live music.
Thank you Brooks, I had a blast! Here are a few photos from the weekend.
We provided a fun and upbeat fire show for Enmax’s annual stampede entertainment party. the event brings together staff for a night of fun filled activities. The event also included fortune tellers, caricature artists, tasty snacks and a live band. Andrew Bolton captured some great photos of the event and even captured a few shots of the fire show. Here are my favourite photos that he captured! Yes… I know, I look like I’m about to take off in the Triple Fire Hooping photo. ; )
Howdy Cow poke! The Calgary Stampede has officially started up and we’re all revved up for the party! Cowgirl themed Clowns, Hula Hoopers, Stilt Walkers, Southern Bells and more! Bring in some variety artists for your Pancake Breakfast Entertainment!
Last night was the evening filled with Calgary Party Entertainment at the Calgary 2012’s Sweet City Celebrations event. It was a massive party held at the BMO Centre. The party was in celebration of Calgary being named the Cultural Capital of the World for 2012. I’ve found a few great photo streams from the event on Flickr if you missed the party and what to see what it was all about. Check out the photos from the Stampede Promotion Committee and Jame’s Set to see how wild this party was! It was packed with Go-Go Dancers, Superheroes, Bollywood, Luchadors, Food Trucks, Living Statues, Circus artists, DJs, Cowboys, Dragons and amazing light and sound equipment. The event included over 150 performance artists!
I performed roving entertainment for the line ups, the lobby area and the VIP guests upstairs before the doors opened to the event, welcoming guests to the evening and creating smiles during the wait. Here’s a few photos from the evening.
A few weeks ago I performed at the Edmonton Taboo and I gotta say, it was an absolute blast! Taboo is an event run by CanWest Productions, it brings together retailers for sexy products, workshops on sexuality and provides stage entertainment throughout the night. I performed several roving characters as well as a 20 minute stage act as a Russian Sex Education Teacher. It was a great time! I especially loved when after the show people asked me “How long have you been in Canada?” and “How many languages do you speak?” It took every ounce of strength not to tell them that no, I’m not actually Russian. The attendee who asked how many languages I speak was EXTRA confused when in a thick Russian accent I casually replied, “Only one, is English.”
Taboo had other fun performers like Joe Francis an amazing comedy hypnotist, Roxy Diva as the Master of Ceremonies for the main stage, and the sweet and talented Lindsay Istace.
Here’s a few photos from the event taken by Christopher Peel. If you’ve never been to Taboo I suggest you check out the CanWest Productions website, they run it every year all across Western Canada and in Winnipeg.
Edmonton Entertainment – Stilt walkers, jugglers, hula hoopers and more!
This week we provided fire performers and a stilt walker for the Mercury Opera Alley ‘Oop event. This event was unlike any other I’ve performed for and it was very unique. There were daytime events for the guests all up and down on Stephen Ave in Calgary and then as dusk drew near the always awesome stilt walker Nikolai Smith drew the crowd down the street and into a narrow alley way. Guests saw spectacles along the way as they moved through the alley, a stunning woman in red with a lantern stood mysteriously on a balcony. At the end of the alley was a silent fire show and then the crowd was then drawn into a cove of buildings where several opera singers sung and an orchestra was revealed when the back door of a haul truck was thrust open.
The sound of the singers radiated through the alley way and the lighting made me wish I’d brought a camera!
