The Circus Acts Insomniacs are a versatile Kootenay based traveling performance troupe. We’ve evolved from the mountains of Fernie and Nelson BC and have been working tirelessly, collaborating with our talents and expertise to create an extravaganza for the senses.  We are a delightful combination of a creative and theatrical dance group, spiced up with a touch of circus flare.  Our unique performances  embrace the spaces around us and the culture we live in.  All dazzled up with mesmerizing fire and captivating costumes, our shows include aerial performances, choreographed dance, theatrical storytelling, prop manipulation, hula hoop spectacles, fire spinning, stilt walking and astonishing acrobatics.

Our hope is to encourage playfulness and self-discipline and we believe strongly in inspiring people to find their own strengths. By embracing our Kootenay lifestyles and lighting up the room with a show to remember, our belief is that audiences will be inspired to follow their own dreams.  We believe also that the relationship between music and dance is a universal form of communication, so we are consistently striving to redefine our identity as performers and push our kinetics into fresh modes of storytelling. We are attempting to expose crowds to the interactive capacity of dance and create a public appreciation of performing arts.   Drawing inspiration from both modern and traditional techniques, we never stop learning.

The small towns we live in have been the catalyst that have brought us together, lit the fire of creativity and continues to encourage communal growth.  We have been humbled by the overwhelming community response and it has inspired our drive to push forward and create.  Please join us in our expression.  Let us spark your imagination.  Sit back and enjoy the magic of our show and don’t be shy to dive into the mesmerizing and truly unique world of Circus Acts Insomniacs.
