Audience members at our stage show will experience a constant flow of fire and non-fire performance, gradually building to an exhilarating climax. Though the acts may look dangerous, they are all performed safely and with all necessary precautions in place. The acts are performed silently, to choreographed music or to the music already playing at the event (at client discretion.)

While strolling, acts are chosen based on audience reaction and other factors specific to each event. Each act is interactive and our elegant costumes, makeup, and personalities shine as we meet and greet each audience member enthusiastically.

During the planning phase of the event, we work closely with the client to ensure they receive the best entertainment possible. We are professionals on and off the stage, and strive to keep our clients happy throughout each phase of the event. We work hard to ensure we exceed all of our clients' expectations.

Additional Notes:

Stage shows can be coordinated using any size stage, however larger stage shows will allow more extravagant performances. Certain acts may be altered or omitted on smaller stages to maintain adequate safety.

All clients outside the US or requiring a commercial flight will be required to provide all fuels for performances, as flammable liquids are not permitted across borders or on planes.

Proprietors

Bacchanal Promotions is a fully insured Detroit based entertainment company specializing in circus performance, fire arts, and tribal-fusion belly-dance. Andrew and Lex D'Ascenzo offer stage performance, strolling entertainment, and instruction in a variety of performance arts. Founded in 2007, Bacchanal has performed their unique blend of entertainment at hundreds of events throughout the United States and Canada.

Lex got her start belly-dancing in 2000, training and performing with several groups while perfecting her own style. She began performing with fire in 2006, learning fire fans, fire fingers and fire eating. Combining a mastery of belly-dance with an intimate knowledge of fire performance, Lex has risen to become one of the most talented performers in her field.

Andrew started out spinning poi at at 17, and after a few years practicing almost exclusively alone, began using fire and performing publicly. He then traveled the continent, learning from top performers from Toronto to San Francisco. While creating a unique technical poi style, Andrew also developed other arts including fire staff, fire breathing, and contact juggling.

Since performing together, Lex and Andrew have also added stilt walking, powerising, and acrobalance to their growing list of duet acts. We strive to deliver only the highest quality of entertainment, call us today to talk about your next event!

Products & Services

Stilt Walking / Jumping Stilt Acrobatics

varies
Stilt Walking / Jumping Stilt Acrobatics

Our performers are much more than typical stilt walkers. We use stilts called Powerisers, also known as bocks or simply put, jumping stilts. Standing over 7ft tall with huge springs attached to our feet, we're able to run and jump over 6ft in the air, doing flips and acrobatic stunts.

We also offer traditional stilt walking upon request, with characters towering over 9ft tall, able to effortlessly maneuver through dense crowds and long distances.


Professional Fire Performance

varies
Professional Fire Performance

Our most popular act, fire performances astonish audiences in any setting. With high-energy spinning acts like poi, fans and double staff, we offer the adrenaline of fire without the danger. Fire breathing invokes the breathtaking power of the flame, while graceful fire fingers, contact staff, and rope dart show its beauty. Fire eating and fakir add an element of seduction and allure, to which we add acro-balance and choreographed duet routines to bring it all together.
