File this one under “everything old is new again!”  Here at Imagination Entertainment, our trending alerts point to a fun old/new way of integrating circus into special events:  Vintage Carnival.  Enter:  “Carnival Circa” – by the iL CiRCo troupe. Vintage Carnival meets Sideshow with this retro-inspired vision of circus events.  Painstakingly-restored authentic vintage circus props set the stage where exotic characters and classic acts evoke childhood memories of carefree fun and amazement. Take a look at this quick video of some events we’ve recently done - and call us to let us know how we can bring any or all of these elements to your next event.

50 years after the British Invasion, the Beatles songbook is as relevant as ever. Paul McCartney is touring the world and Ringo Starr just dropped a new album. We are celebrating the anniversary of Beatles mania our way - by giving the world famous songs contemporary musical arrangements and creating a fresh acrobatic production worthy of global success. Imagination Entertainment is proud to present: “Beatles– by iL CiRCo” Producer

Amy Gale: "This production is a work of passion for us. We all grew up listening to the Beatles. Their music truly spans the globe and generations. We have had the privilege of performing the show several times this year. Every audience was thrilled - regardless of age and geography.

We were honored to be invited to join the biggest annual celebration in Guadalajara, Mexico: the city sponsored "Fiestas de Octubre", a month long celebration that brings many top performers to town.  

We were asked to deliver an iL CiRCo show in residence! Six 40 minute shows a week, four weeks running. While this is a dream come true for all performers, it also presents its challenges.

Producer Amy Gale: "I had to cast carefully to ensure that the whole cast of 10 performers was available for the whole time period so that we could build our show for the duration.  

Once the cast was established, we had 7 top acts performed by 10 acrobats. Clearing the schedule for so many top performers proved difficult and I am grateful everyone made the time!

We just discovered this video from our shows in Greece!

Here at Imagination Entertainment, we are so fortunate to be able to travel throughout the world with our signature shows.  iL CiRCo is such a show and Greece is one of the wonderful countries we have been lucky enough to visit.  In December of 2012, our Executive Producer, Amy Gale, and our talented troupe of iL CiRCo artists traveled to the city of Thessaloniki to perform a series of shows at the Thessaloniki Concert Hall.  The first two shows were for an audience of only children and the final shows were for all ages.  The vimeo clip we are sharing was just recently posted on YouTube by our very happy clients and we couldn’t be more pleased to show this to you.  Check out Amy’s interview! She is...

iL CiRCo act “Acrobazia” – French-Canadian artists Jean-François Martel and Christian Paquet – delivered two sets that thrilled the audience at Monday’s showcase.

First up, Jean-François Martel’s solo act “The Mystic Cube” combined strength, handling a 6-foot tall cube, and grace, and drew gasps from a room full of entertainment professionals.

Returning to the stage for their hand-to-hand set, the duo performed their highly physical dual balancing act. The room went quiet and guests watched in amazement as Jean-François and Christian executed the gravity and human strength defying stunts.

Pam Navarre and Peggy Jewell received tremendous feedback from the showcase back at the Imagination Entertainment tradeshow booth.

Pam Navarre:  “It’s great because...
