Light of the North Entertainment is an entertainment organization that aims to share and spread our passion for object manipulation and circus arts to Northern Alberta communities.

Summary:

Light of the North Entertainment is a circus entertainment organization based in St. Paul, Alberta, Canada. It was created by RoseFire and Rumplestiltspin in April 2015.

Our Story:

Light of the North comes from spinning fire
on a dark, cold night in the dead of winter. In Northern Alberta, winter can last many months, with long, dark nights and short days until summer. Fire, LED, and other forms of prop or object manipulation are a way to literally and figuratively bring light to the community throughout the year. Our aim is to share and spread our passion for object manipulation and circus arts to Northern Alberta communities.

We frequently collaborate with The Circus of Hell, a family run circus from Nampa, Alberta. To find out more information or to book a fire performance, please check out their page via www.circusofhell.com.
