Maque DaV�s - 206-297-3255
Vancouver, BC � Victoria weekend in May brings
the world�s only flaming vaudeville
circus, the Cirque de Flambe. The latest production
of this local troupe, In the Shadow of the Giant, will
set Vancouver into a fantastical burst of inflamed clowns,
Robots and Jugglers.
In the Shadow of the Giant is the collaborative
by-product of 33 artists� imaginations, made uniquely
evocative when combined with fire. �Cirque de Flambe
prides itself on taking fire to new heights of beauty,
comedy and awe,� said Maque DaV�s, Artistic Director.
�In true circus style, we use our hard-won skills in
performances that play with on our audiences� natural
apprehension of fire, while stealthily employing
safety precautions that assuage even the toughest Fire
With vaudevillian flair, the Master Wizard ringmaster
guides us through the Cirque de Flambe tall tales of
laughable bravado and blunders.
All ages will leave with fond childhood memories,
except now those memories crescendo with more
pyrotechnically-armed fire performers per square foot
than any childhood could ever imagine.
In the Shadow of the Giant�s displays are brought to a
resounding vibrancy by the Fremont Philharmonic.
Orchestrations are 99.99% original music by Seattle
composers Fred Hawkinson, Stuart Zobel and Jeremy
Reinhold. �We are going to ridiculous lengths to
please you,� assures band leader, Fred Hawkinson.
�Calisthenics, diet regimes, fireproofing and
something brand new.�
Cirque de Flambe has presented West Coast performances
including Spokane First Night, Utah Arts Festival, the
Bellevue Art Museum, Northwest Folklife Festival,
Edmonton Fringe Festival, Seattle Fringe Festival,
Tacoma First Night, Burning Man Arts Festival and
numerous local appearances.
