2013 Victoria International Busking Festival Pics and Video!

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!!

San Francisco 2013 Fire Expo

Kat and Karina headed south this week to perform at the 8th Annual Fire Expo in San Francisco! We were invited to present two routines (Pendulum Poi Solo, and Cosmic Love Hoop/Staff duet) in the heart of downtown SF: Union Square, in front of 3000 people. We had an amazing time at the event, and spending time and training with the incredible circus community in the Bay area for the entire week. It was so inspiring to be sharing the stage with some of the best Fire Performers in North America.  Here’s some pictures from our routines, and backstage shenanigans! Many thanks to the photographers who captured this special moment, and to the Temple of Poi for hosting the event.

Check out the amazing photos (click to enlarge!), and here’s video of our routines!

Blaxploitation II Party!

This summer VestaFire was pleased to be invited to co-create a party atmosphere at Nanaimo Centre Stage, for Blaxploitation II! A fun filled evening filled with 70’s funk remixes, crazy costumes, projections of 70’s movies, and and private birthday party downstairs that got just a little bit wild. Check out the three min video just released by Funky Hypothalamus-  and VestaFire was caught on tape with LED poi, Contact Juggling, and Buugeng. We also did giant Bubbles outside, and performed with fibreoptic whip and LED hoops! An awesome time was had by all, we’re so happy to have been invited to perform.

This solstice, we were privileged to once again partner with Andre Nobels  to present four acts in Central Vancouver Island Multi Cultural Society’s ‘Harmonies of Faith’- a performance bringing together the multi-faith community to express our spirituality through compassion. As prop dance artists, we at VestaFire express our spirituality through movement and music- how we connect with our Divine- our moving meditation.

The performance sold out the city’s largest venue at 850 seats. It was great performing on such a beautiful stage, to such a wonderful audience. We loved co-creating the experience with the diverse faith groups- Christian faiths, Muslim, Sikh, Pagan, Unitarian- all were represented and all came together to express love and compassion. It was a beautiful night.

The performances were wonderfully recorded and edited by Manly Media. Gratitude! And here the videos are, for your pleasure! Please let us know what you think by commenting on Facebook and Twitter, if you have them! 🙂

My multi-hoop act is featured here, on Hooping.org, a major electronic networking hub in the hooping community.

Our Acrobatic Stilt Dance, and Flowwand, folding fan, and stilt dance jam are also here for your viewing pleasure. 🙂

We have a busy few months ahead preparing for next season- costuming and choreography for two new shows. Remember to ‘like’ us and share on Facebook- we’re very active on our FB page, posting pictures, videos and things of interest there first! And then, our spring/summer season for 2013- already booked up with AMAZING performance opportunities! We’re very excited! 🙂 Thanks so much for your continued support!
