What a fantastic time our Team had producing and performing in the Jelly Jazz Circus tent as part of the Porthleven Masked Ball. Incandescence created a bespoke site specific performance tent especially for the event.
The evening started with a lively parade around the festival site with our fabulous circus band accompanied by our dancing stilt walkers and stunning dancers.
Revellers at the ball were treated to the crazy weird world of the Jelly Jazz Circus. Incandescence artists animated the tent with fabulous costumed performers dancing across the bar, dynamic fire performance and interactive aerial artists hanging around above the dance floor.
Fantastic tunes were played by the Jelly Jazz DJs who created a brilliant dance atmosphere throughout the night. This was definitely my favourite Masked Ball to date.
Massive thank yous to everybody who worked so hard to make this event a huge success. To view images from this amazing night please visit our Face book page to look at other Incandescence site specific shows and performances. Please also visit our website Thanks Satya x

Our leading show design team has been building fantastic themed decor for this years Porthleven Masked Ball. The team is very excited to be hosting the Jelly Jazz Circus featuring Pete Isaac and the Jelly Jazz DJs.
The design team was busy creating an interactive performance space inside one of Southwest Domes beautiful geodesic tents. The entrance into the Jelly Jazz Circus tent lead into a magically lit tunnel.
The tunnel became smaller and smaller leading to a miniature door and as the guests opened this door, they were transported into the weird and wonderful world of the Jelly Jazz Circus.

Guest blog by Fleur Davison, Incandescence Circus Company’s resident choreographer.
My journey with Incandescence Circus Production Company began in 2003, when I was invited to perform in an exciting new show called ‘Cirque Elemental’ for The Festival of Eid in Qatar as a classical ballet dancer.
This was Qatar’s first experience of booking a large-scale circus production and the trip was a huge adventure!
I immediately loved the eclectic mix of styles that made up ‘Cirque Elemental’ and was wowed by the incredible skill and energy of the circus performers.
I was honoured to be performing with them and took to the company like a duck to water. I soon became their resident dance choreographer and later part of the Show Creation Team.
As I grew, so did my passion for all kinds of different styles of dance, from ballet to jazz, tap to contemporary dance and later on commercial street dance, ballroom and tango.
Working with Incandescence has enabled me to fulfil my potential in all aspects of dance and has led me to learn new exciting skills such as Thai Chi Sword and Fan.
On each job with Incandescence Circus Company, I have the opportunity to really explore different forms and themes and to bring so many characters to life. I love the challenge of working with a new prop and rarely choreograph without one!
There are no limits working with a circus company, if you need a dancer to fly then she can fly. If you need a wall of fire instead of feathers then there will be a wall of fire. Mixing circus and dance is like opening doors of limitless opportunity.
‘Running away with the Circus’ has taught me that anything in life is possible!
