How many small towns in Canada can claim to have their very own fire-breathing circus? The PyroFlys have been spinning balls, hoops, staves and fire for about a year now and bringing their skill and magic to events all over town. I first saw them this spring at Emergency #19, performing Broken Down Circus. In the spirit of contemporary European street theatre and circus arts, they bring spectacle, athleticism, dance, performance and tricks together to make our lives more magical. And who doesn’t need more magic?
Here are some videos of their performances – the first of their performance of the Broken Down Circus at Emergency #19 and the second a “love-letter” from local videographer Lester Alfonso who is very magical in his own right.
