Cirque Phoenix is the corporate arm of The Underground Circus, Western Canada's only full time professional Circus Company.
It was created by Peter Boulanger and Ninon Parent, two former Cirque Du Soleil acrobats, who were determined to create a West Coast style of circus. They began teaching circus techniques to dancers and gymnasts, and soon had a small company. They were also lucky enough to find a few of the local acrobats, and with this talent, they had their circus.
The name "Phoenix" came about from the elements of fire performance that are sometimes woven into the shows. Smooth transitions, strong choreography and acrobatic technique distinguishes this young troupe. The commitment to excellence, and ability to adapt their performances to difficult venues has made Cirque Phoenix a favorite in the Vancouver event community.
