On June 17, 2017 Imagine Circus stilt walking fairies fluttered around the 13th Annual Greensboro Summer Solstice, parading with characters from Paperhand Puppet Intervention and costumed festival patrons. Later in the evening, Imagine Circus presented a fire show sponsored by Corrupted Arts and MC’d by Madelyn Greco of LivingBrush. The fire show included artful prop manipulation, mesmerizing fire dancing, and fire acrobatics! The mission of Greensboro Summer Solstice is to create “an experience for festival-goers that blends local artisans, performers and budding entrepreneurs with a little bit of magic, opening up imaginations to the possibilities in each of us.” We were grateful to be a part!

Aerial performers, stilt walkers, and fire dancers added the music festival vibe at the second Soundside Live Concert in Nags Head, NC on June 1st, 2017. With the backdrop of the Roanoke Sound, our performers had a blast performing aerials and fire to an enthusiastic crowd of beach goers. This event featured fabulous local and national music, delicious, local food, Mother Earth beer, and artisan vendors.
Teaming up with OBX Entertainment and Bearded Face Productions, the Outer Banks Visitor’s Bureau kicked off the Soundside Live Concert Series on May 25, 2017. The first of three Thursday evening concerts, this event featured national recording artists Red Wanting Blue, The Commonheart, and Tropidelic, as well as performances by Imagine Circus! Although the evening had moments of epic wind, stormy clouds, and a brief downpour, a double rainbow emerged and the show went on! Joining in the concert fun, Imagine Circus performers danced on stilts and performed acrobatics and fire dancing. We are looking forward to two more weeks of Thursday night fun!
