Firefly Theatre is known for thought-provoking thrills and stunning displays of athleticism and grace. Alberta’s award-winning Aerial Circus Performance Company has captivated audiences nation-wide and beyond with their unique fusion of Aerial Arts and Live Theatre. Their work has been presented at festivals and events throughout North America and beyond, including the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D. C., the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver, WinterCity Festival (Toronto), five consecutive Grey Cup Festivals and Canada Day in London, England.
Firefly Theatre’s work is unique in Alberta and has been described as “spectacular and breathtaking,” The Sun, “gorgeous and terrifying,” Vue Weekly and “fresh, funny, neck-craning spectacles,” The Journal.
Firefly Theatre established Alberta’s first Aerial Arts Program in 2004, offering circus classes and workshops to community members. The company has been honoured with a City of Edmonton Excellence Award in Arts and Culture and a Mayor’s Award for Innovative Artistic Direction.
