Firefly Theatre is known for thought-provoking thrills and stunning displays of athleticism and grace. Alberta’s award-winning Aerial Circus Performance Company has captivated audiences at festivals and events throughout North America and beyond, including the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D. C., the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and Canada Day in London, England.
We perform on the ground and in the air, creating original live performances that fuse the genres of circus and theatre. Our productions have taken place inside theatres, museums, convention centres and nightclubs, outside in squares and intersections, and in the air suspended from buildings. Firefly Theatre’s work is unique in Alberta and has been described as “spectacular and breathtaking,” The Sun,“gorgeous and terrifying,” Vue Weekly and “fresh, funny, neck-craning spectacles,” The Journal.
The company has been honoured with a City of Edmonton Excellence Award in Arts and Culture, a Mayor’s Award for Innovative Artistic Direction, and the inaugural Edmonton Event Awards – Best Entertainer, 2016. In February of 2018, Firefly’s Artistic Director Annie Dugan was honoured as Global TV’s Woman of Vision.
