What is the Alberta Circus Arts Festival?


This month, the Edmonton-based Firefly Theatre & Circus launches the province’s first-ever circus focused festival! June 25-27, the Alberta Circus Arts Festival promises virtual performances from many different Western Canadian circus artists, plus workshops and initiatives in professional development for workers in all aspects of the industry, from ringleader on down.

The free virtual Keynote and Masterclass “From Concept to Stage” will be delivered Friday evening by St. Albert raised, Las Vegas-based creator and stage director Krista Monson.

For more on this, CKUA’s Tony King brought us a chat with Annie Dugan, co-founder and Artistic Director of Firefly Theatre and one of the Producers of the Alberta Circus Arts Festival, on the Thursday, June 24, 2021 episode of Traffic Jams.
