• Red Deer stilt walker makes a BIG impression!

    This Red Deer stilt walker was great addition to to the Red Deer Festival of Trees event and can made a BIG impression. Just check out the photo below of Safire performing for the Red Deer Festival of Trees Cirque Du Noel Gala. The awesome Chris Visser was also providing roving magic and balloon twisting for the event.

    When a photo was requested it was suggested “why don’t you pose by those trees.” It seemed like a great idea, what an excellent background for the photo… except… do you see any trees? Nope. With her massive height, huge skirt, and epic wing span Safire the stilt walker managed to completely dwarf out the Christmas trees.

  • 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.

  • Stollery Snowflake Gala – Edmonton Circus Entertainment

    SaFire Dance Inc. provided a range of circus entertainment at this year’s Stollery Children’s Christmas Gala. Some of the acts we booked included stilt walking, juggling, fire eating, fire dancing, contact juggling, balloon twisting and LED hula hooping! The evening included tons of prizes, silent auctions, entertainment, music, dinner and a live band!  I think my favourite part of the night honestly though was when they were drawing the winner for a grand prize of a NEW CAR. Six people were on stage and each had a key with only one of the keys being able to unlock the door. Well… low and behold all six people tried and no one was able to open the door!! Everyone was shocked and confused.
    They decided to allow each guest try their key again and sure enough one woman’s face was a mix of shock and horror as she realized that her key did in fact work! Can you imagine? You wouldn’t even be embarrassed that the key didn’t work the first time because you’d be so overjoyed with the fact that you won!
    The event and decor were absolutely GORGEOUS and we look forward to working with the Stollery Children’s Hospital for next year’s gala event! The lovely gentlemen juggling and stilt walking is the oh so talented Nikolai Smith, an Edmonton based performer.

    Circus Entertainment for an epic Circus Themed Event!
