What to Expect
An Illuminair-produced show will feature top quality circus professionals displaying the talents they have gained via years, in some cases nearly a decade, of hard work and dedication. Stage shows tend to start with solo or small-flame acts and build to a fast, bright, ensemble finish. If the venue and event allows, both aerial acts and fire performance can be showcased at the same time during our full-length show's finale, creating an immersive and exciting visual experience for the audience.
When booking a solo or group act, Illuminair artists are true professionals at all times. We will happily modify our show, from costumes, to music, to act size; to suit the needs of any event.
Stage size, audience proximity, fire suppression systems, aerial rigging capacity of the venue, set up times, fire safety crew size, insurance certificates, and more are only some of the variables Illuminair producers and booking agents will think of FOR you, so the client can rest assured that the act they book will be presented in a safe and effective manner. We are happy to provide personnel to walk through any unknown venue in order to make sure all safety variables are thought of. For out of town shows/events, Illuminair will guide a client or event planner through the process of providing appropriate photos of the venue for safe assessment by our team.
Illuminair Entertainment can add top-quality aerial and/or fire entertainment to any event, party, fundraiser, festival, wedding, and more! Founded in 2010, we have been featured on some of Canada's biggest stages and many of our artists have been featured locally and internationally at events in Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Saint John, Las Vegas, Seattle, Minneapolis, Washington, Reno, Detroit, and more!
We're fully capable to fill any entertainment need, be it a 5 minute solo act, ambient or walk-about entertainment, a street performance, or a full-length stage show.
Illuminair Entertainment is also the proud owner of a top-quality portable aerial rig, which can safely bring aerial acts into spaces which would never have been able to house them for rigging reasons. Perfect for outdoor shows, parties, and festivals, or in historic venues where the ceiling may not be utilized to suspend a performer.
Let Illuminair Entertainment's production staff help create a custom circus show for your clients' next event. We can provide acts to suit any budget and standard shows can run anywhere from 5 minutes-1 hour of solid entertainment. Past corporate clients include The Food Network, CIBC, Subspace Productions, and Electronic Nation. We have also been the featured entertainment at countless weddings, birthday parties, street festivals, and nightclubs.
Our artists are highly adept at altering their look and costuming to suit any theme, from modern, family-friendly "Cirque-style" all the way to dark, alternative and decidedly sexy.
For shows within the GTA, no additional travel fees apply. Artists are willing and able to travel to make a show happen.
Let Illuminair Entertainment create a customized fire and aerial production that will leave your audience wide-eyed and wanting more..
Additional Booking Notes
Illuminair strictly adheres to the NAFAA fire safety guidelines. It is our company policy that each fire performer is accompanied by a "safety;" a trained member of our performance team who minds the fire extinguisher Illuminair provides as well as the fire blanket designed and treated to extinguish tools quickly and efficiently.
For aerial acts, each venue is analyses to ensure safe, reliable rigging is allowed and appropriate. Illuminair artists are familiar with a number of Toronto/Canadian venues that allow and are suited to aerial performance. Our past experience is your gain as a client! If rigging is not possible, we can provide our portable aerial rig to facilitate aerial acts. Please note that the aerial rig carries with it an extra fee for transport and set-up.
For each event, our artists will require a small "green room," a room separate from the event hall in which to get ready, change, and store gear.
