SAN FRANCISCO, USA
TRAPEZE WORLDWIDE | DIRTYVOLT RECORDS | VAU DE VIRE SOCIETY
Delachaux is San Francisco’s sonic blastronaut par excellence. His intoxicating ‘electro-deco big beat’ style of pouring vintage samples and exotic orchestrations over a barrage of saucy beats has fused a wild carousel of voluptuous voodoo and body-quaking bass that reflect both the dilated discos and carbonated cabarets of the contemporary SF Bay Area scene and have made him one of the west coast underground’s most seminal DJ/Producers.
From all of us at Le Cirque de la Nuit we couldn’t be more excited to finally be bringing this stellar West Coast producer to showcase his talents on our stage. Prepare to blast off!

Growing up on the west coast, she nurtured a long-standing passion for hip-hop which after many years ‘underground’, flourished into a DJ career during her years in Banff. In the last few years she has settled in YYC where she has been honing her craft and digging deep for the best gems in hip hop, groove, and hip house. Her unique style has her frequently opening local nights with Girls on Decks and Esenta. Applebaum’s contagious funky rhythms are guaranteed to get the party off to an energetic start.

LYRA • STATIC TRAPEZE • CORDE LISSE • SILKS • JUGGLING • ACRO – LETHBRIDGE, AB.
Nefelibata Circus is a performing group based out of Lethbridge Alberta. Our group trains out of the Gymfinity gymnastics Unit – the University of Lethbridge gymnastic recreational facility. We have been slowly growing since we originated about three years ago, when Jenna Lencucha brought the aerial arts program over from Newcastle, England. We started as a training group, and have grown to a performance team with an amazing group of performers and athletes. None of our group members were originally gymnasts, but with ongoing love for aerial arts and circus performing we have developed a team who loves to perform, entertain, and challenge ourselves.
Nefelibata, in Portuguese means “cloud walker” which is exactly what we all are. Individuals who live in the clouds of our own imagination or dreams. Our group consists of eight performers: Jenna Lencucha, Katherine Odland, Nicole Sutherland, Abby Chomiak, John Hedingham, Gerardo Balderas, Michael Bartz, and, Landon Waters. We look forward to sharing our passions in aerial arts, including silks, corde lisse, lyra, and aerial straps, and our love for acro, hand balancing and juggling.

Each dancer has been entranced with the art of Bellydance for more than a decade and have studied and performed throughout North America, Egypt and Turkey. Specializing in EDM events and versed in the arts of fire spinning, feather fans, sword and veil; Fatale Fusion has taken the stage along side top DJ talent such as Pumpkin, Emancipator, Desert Dwellers, and JPOD. This tantalizing trio can be seen regularly along side Calgary’s own Bass Carvan, as well at Cirque de la Nuit’s infamous steampunk parties and local Burning Man events.FACEBOOK

Noah has graced stages all over the world and performed with various groups such as: Mythmaker (BC. Canada) The Fire Bugs (New Zealand) and Fire FX (Australia).

BODY ART MOTION
BodyArtMotion (aka B.A.M) represents Calgary’s cutting edge school of dance and yoga transformation studies. You can’t help but feel the depth of energy and connection weaved by these stunning women. B.A.M aims to harness and present the essence of ancient tribal bellydance infused with the sacred language of yoga, performed to the juiciest beats of the electronic music movement. Devotion to precise technique is infused with emotive ritualistic storytelling, expressed through the exciting ‘present moment’ nature of group improvisation. We aim to create every performance as a unique adventure for body, mind and soul. B.A.M’s Performance Team is directed by our school founder Tanya Lee, an established international performer, published author, and yoga teacher trainer. Every member of the team is actively involved in the school and studies both dance and yoga. Shauna Jayne, Amy McLeod and Rachel Blake make up the core team and are often joined on stage by the talents of amazing individuals involved with the school. As human’s we desire to feel like we belong to a tribe, and when we train for this dance, there is no doubt that we feel the power of true sisterhood.
Bella is a performer of many genres and skills. Ranging from classical ballet to off-the-wall art projects, she brings all of those aspects into one. She climbs the silks, hangs from hoops, twinkles on her toes, rolls around in paint, poses in the flesh and so much more. You can find her eating splits for breakfast and licking her toes for dessert. A young spirit and an old soul trapped in a woman’s body, Bella loves life and loves sharing that joy onstage with you. Come play, be inspired, loose your expectations and get wild!

Natalia’s self defined artistic role is to weave her chosen form of Flamenco with the dynamic and open-minded world of the underground dance world. After a decades long tug of war between love and fear of the form that demands our deepest truth, she finally accepted her role after a journey that took her from Rajasthan, the origin of the Romani people; to the streets of Triana, where Flamenco was born. With the support of her chosen community back in Calgary, she discovered that tradition and contemporary could coexist while maintaining the root of authentic expression. She chooses music that speaks to her and translates it into raw emotions released as unscripted movement within the ever-present container of rhythm. Both solo and as a founding member of the Dirty Gramophones, she has performed for several festivals and events including Shambhala, Astral Harvest, Bohemia, Paradise, Tribe, Freezerburn and Burningman. Que me quiten lo bailao.
Bio coming soon.
Prepare to be hypnotized by the dynamic flow of this talented Le Cirque de la Nuit performer. From her role in the Bass Caravan dance troupe to her illustrious poi routines you know she’s going to be bringing her A game.
Early Bird tickets ( 200 quantity ) are $40 / General Admission $55 / More at the Door.
