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.

Running away with the Circus

Guest blog by Fleur Davison, Incandescence Circus Company’s resident choreographer.

circus show

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!

cirque balletice themed show

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.

Water themed entertainment

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.

Cirque cabaret

I trained to be a dancer from a very young age and followed a privileged path at many well renowned schools, including Elmhurst Ballet School and London Studio Centre

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!

If you are looking to hire a world class circus show in  the genre of a Cirque du Soleil style show, then take a look at Cirque Elemental which was produced by our leading show design team at Incandescence Production Company.

Incandescence Cirque Elemental

Cirque Elemental is a contemporary circus show which has toured to many parts of the world receiving rave reviews.

’’Wow what a show! ‘Part circus nouvelle, part contemporary ballet and opera and completely unique – Incandescence’s Elemental is one spectacular show’’

Max Channon, The Cornishman Newspaper review

A breath taking and beautiful fusion of circus and dance - a spectacle worthy of the West End’

Glastonbury Arts Festival

Like many contemporary or cirque nouveau shows ,it skilfully blends traditional circus skills with modern theatrical techniques to relate a story.

Incandescence Cirque Elemental

Cirque Elemental is the story of a small child Mei Mei who embarks on a magical journey to the four Elemental worlds. She is accompanied by a Fairy queen and  two endearing contemporary clowns.

Hire a Cirque du Soliel style show

In the Water World they encounter a dramatic  Sea Queen who rises from the depths and creates a watery backdrop with mermen and mermaids playfully performing on a trapeze and on seaweed ropes.  Whilst below mermaids perform a beautiful choreographed dance on ballet points.

Then the pulse of African drumming draws the child and Queen  into the Earth World were they are captivated by high energy dance and acrobatics.

The tempo  slows as they journey into the ephemeral World of Air.  Here the child accompanied by the Queen experience a visual spectacle as they interact with  static aerial and flying,  birds whilst on the ground voluminous ethereal masked dancers, create a stunning backdrop.

Finally the child experiences the primordial power of Fire and is mesmerised by fire dancing, aerial and acrobatics before the fantasy world starts to fade and the child re-emerges into her own world.
