Circus Bacchus presented a Halloween show at the Orpheum Theater in October 2014, A Nightmare on Aspen Street. The night of entertainment featured comedy, music, burlesque, stilts and aerial dance followed by a fire performance. While Bacchus has performed many times in Flagstaff at festivals and other events, this was their most ambitious show.
Circus Bacchus is a collective of performers based out of Flagstaff, Arizona started in August 2007 by a group of friends who believe that circus-style performance presents a unique medium for the art we wish to convey. In 2013, Circus Bacchus grew into the not-for-profit organization Bacchus Arts Collective, which includes several performance troupes and which hosts classes for the community.
Circus Bacchus features acts such as strongmen, hula hoop, poi, aerial silks, stilts, juggling, acrobalance, fans, burlesque, many dancers and often times fire! All of their acts are choreographed to the beautiful and exhilarating tunes provided by the Bacchus Family Band.
