Edmonton's Home for Aerial Circus Arts

Firefly Theatre & Circus

Firefly Theatre & Circus has been the go to place for circus performances in Edmonton since 2001.  We have performed on the ground and in the air, at corporate events, award shows and galas, on the sides of buildings, on the street, and of course in many of Edmonton’s fabulous theatres.

Our corporate entertainment includes both aerial and ground acts, which can be tailored to your event.  We love to work with our clients to create the perfect performance.  Our biography is extensive, working at home and beyond for individuals through the largest corporations.  We deliver professional high quality entertainment.  Firefly Theatre was the recipient of the inaugural Edmonton Event Award – Entertainer of the Year.

Firefly Theatre and Circus produces an annual outdoor free workshop and show, Cirque in the Park in July, and is the producer of the brand new Alberta Circus Arts Festival.  Due to the current global pandemic, the ACAF will premiere in June, 2021.

In The Theatre

The past few months  have been busy at Firefly, as we were relaunching the Firefly Circus Academy, doing pop up performances with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, backyard circus shows, and parades with the Edmonton Arts Council.  

Currently we are creating and developing some innovative COVID aware performances for 2021. There will be circus arts in Edmonton!  

In the meantime, please enjoy a short video with clips of some of our productions from the past several years, filled with lots of awesome circus artists!

In The Studio

Due to AHS regulations and the global pandemic, our studio is currently closed.  We are expecting to re-open in January – stay tuned for updates!

Our policies and protocols to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 seem to be working.  We have had zero transmissions in our studio.  One of our many new cleaning protocols includes hanging up our aerial fabric and fogging them all to disinfect.  Here’s a pretty picture from inside the “tent” of our silks being cleaned!

We have socially distant options for many occasions.
Let’s assess the risks for each situation and see if we can make something wonderful happen!
