Circus Bacchus Flagstaff

 

Heritage Square

Flagstaff Arizona

August 28, 2014

 

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 is proud to feature acts such as strongmen, hula hoop, poi, aerial silks, stilts, juggling, acrobalance, fans, burlesque, many dancers and often times fire! All of our acts are choreographed to the beautiful and exhilarating tunes provided by the Bacchus Family Band.

He looks alight, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: He was amazing - and when he was done with this - he took his place back with the family band!
I have seen this before Elizabeth, very clever, and you wonder how they don't hurt their hands.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's pretty amazing, Chad! He was on this thing for a good five minutes- then he took his place with the family band!

Oh, how fun. I actually think I'd enjoy trying one of those, Elizabeth...even if it's harder than it looks. HA!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I KNOW!!!! Wouldn't that be fun!!!
Excellent shots Elizabeth!

This is incredible; look at his body (mind you, not too dissimilar to my own - ahem smile). I wonder how he moved his hands as it got close to the ground?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Truly amazing! I don't doubt you are this fit... but no one will ever know, as you're always wrapped up in layers, ready for frigid temperatures!
I don't know how what he does with his hands- I'll ask him next time!
Very clever but imagine a lot of people doing this on a crowded dance floor wink
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh wouldn't that be fun! smile

Circus refers to a circle.
Bacchus is the mythological god of wine.
So I can guess they are a circle of wine connoisseurs (people after my own heart), trying to work off the effects of their club meetings. Very innovative thinking in my estimate.
You see, some good people also like wine smile

I like your collage, the order of the pictures and the design.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Your antidote is as good as any!!! Very good, Louis!
Thank you!
This fellow gets sore fingers once in a while, I am sure. Wow!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I just don't know how he does it - he was amazing!
This is very clever isn't it, I wonder how many times he fell over before he got the hang of it.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's amazing, Brian! I would imagine it takes some practice!

What power and grace!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Two very good words for him!
