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.

Here’s some pictures from last Halloween’s “Stories from the Bone-Fire” at Errington hall- a 20 min theatrical show dramatizing the battle between Darkness and the Sun, to win dominion over the earth on All Hallow’s Eve.
Well, we’re back! 30 shows in 10 days… what an intense, wonderful, exhausting, and exhilarating experience! We brought two shows to the festival- our comedy and acrobatic daytime busking show, and our night time Myth and Mystery theatrical fire show! The 2013 Victoria International Busking Festival was our first busking festival, and I’m so grateful to the organizers for giving us this opportunity, and to the volunteers and our fellow buskers who were so supportive throughout the festival. We were featured on the news a few times, and were sent some amazing fan photos too! Crowds were huge, and our shows (always good!) have become super tight- we are so proud of what we have done. It’s so gratifying to be able to share our art form with so many people, and receive such wonderful feedback and acclaim. Thank you Victoria!!
