This is the annual Halloween fundraising show for Vesta, Nanaimo’s contemporary circus and fire performance troupe. Funds raised assist with the rental of our winter practice studio.
Vesta is internationally acclaimed, performing internationally with tours of both Asia and the USA. Their spectacular fire shows have been the highlight of many local events such as the VIEX and Winterfest. Vesta also runs summer camps, and teaches ongoing circus lessons for kids and adults at Nanaimo Gymnastics School. They are funded via ArtStarts in Schools as ‘artist in residence’ to teach and perform in schools- this year teaching grade 2’s and 4’s at Coal Tyee Elementary.
Please share this event with your friends, family and networks! Thank you for your support of Arts and Culture in your community!

CIRCUS SKILLS MORE THAN JUST FUN!
Studies show that learning circus flow arts (such as poi, staff, juggling, and hoopdance) builds brain matter. It also has numerous psychological benefits such as stress management and alleviating depression.
Walk into a world of imagination in this combination of Circus Camp and Wild Craft Play! Choose your own adventure and discover your inner super hero. Get outside. Craft your character. Navigate our magical world through circus skills. Join SoLe Adventure and Vesta Entertainment on this life altering adventure. Bring a lunch, dress for epic outdoor adventures, and Come Play With Us!
Cost: $800CAD for the whole retreat, including 8-days of amazing organic food! However, you all need to help make the videos: It’s a collaborative work-exchange retreat! This is for those who really like this idea. Please don’t attend because you want to come to a “cheaper-than-usual” retreat. I’m really expecting you to chip in. Make sense?
Prerequisites: For this retreat it will be best if you’re comfortable with all the poi basics. Other notes: Yes, bring other toys! (fire-gear, hoops, levi-wands, juggling balls, slack-lines, unicorns, etc.). Also bring rain gear in case we get rain, swim suits, hiking boots, bug spray, and anything else that may help you enjoy 8 days in a temperate coastal rain-forest paradise.
