Circus Orange Will Dazzle Crowds at Supercrawl 2018

Perennial Supercrawl faves Circus Orange, who have proven themselves as big of a festival draw as most of the festival's headlining performers, returns to downtown Hamilton for the seventh straight year as part of Supercrawl 2018 (September 13-16, 2018). 

Circus Orange’s conceptual performances have been a consistent Supercrawl highlight since they first brought their production spectacular to Supercrawl. A breathtaking blend of pyrotechnic punch, eye-popping special effects, graceful aerial artistry and gymnastic stunt work, the Hamilton-based performance company marries these elements into a singular entertainment experience that stops people in their tracks.

In 2012, it was their high-altitude aerialist production Pyro Mobile. In 2013, Circus Orange featured a pedal-powered Pyro Copter, a flying opera singer with a dramatic pyro waterfall, a flamethrower trampoline act, and a crane-based aerial silks show for good measure. In 2014, it was the massive Tricycle, a spectacle on wheels ushered through the crowd before transformed into a human-powered pyro wheel dangling above a flame garden.  

This fall, Circus Orange presents a soaring 40-minute circus spectacular that showcases all of the company’s eclectic skills and signature touches, featuring elements of lyrical aerial and strap work, fire dance, high-flying crane numbers, extravagant set pieces, lasers and of course plenty of pyrotechnics. Circus Orange’s much-loved sensory spectaculars follow in the tradition of grand-scale European street theatre and take over the heart of Supercrawl on Saturday night, when all other festival stages go dark to accommodate the massive crowds that gather to watch creativity rocketing into the starry sky. 

At Supercrawl 2018, Circus Orange will once again stage an unforgettable aerial pyrotechnic spectacular on Wilson between James and Hughson at 9pm on Saturday, September 15, as well as open afternoon and evening rehearsals on Friday, September 14.
