Local Talent, World-Class Performances

Cirque Surya (sir•ka sir•ya) is a collective of circus enthusiasts offering performances throughout Michigan and the surrounding areas.

Our troupe exists as a subsidiary of the Ring of Steel Action Theatre, and many of our performers are also experts in stage combat and stunt work.

The two organizations frequently travel together to create truly memorable events, many of which we are invited back to year after year.

Our Portable Aerial Rig

Our portable aerial rig can be set up indoors or outdoors to accommodate heights as low as 14′ and as high as 24′. At full height the rig has a footprint of approximately 24′ square. High wind environments may require the use of ground stakes.

The rig can be used for all of our aerial apparatuses. Aerial silks, aerial hammock, lyra, straps, and trapeze can be hung from a set point for the duration of an event, or we can utilize a pulley system so that the apparatuses can be changed out during the course of a show.

Fire, Safety, and Awe Inspiring Performance

Our fire performers are extensively trained in safety techniques both as performers and as spotters. From the wearing of all natural fibers in our costumes to proper utilization of different types of fire extinguishers, clients can rest easy knowing that our team has fire safety under control.

We are always happy to work with local fire marshals to explain our safety procedures. Fire performances work best either outdoors or in well-ventilated indoor areas. Some venues and forms of set dressing are not suitable for fire performance. Our team is happy to offer consultations  with regard to putting on safe, exciting shows in your venue.

Choose From a Variety of Entertainment Options
  • Festivals– with Ring of Steel we bring a full stage setup along with a variety of our circus and fire acts. Shows range from 25-35 minutes in duration.
  • Haunted Houses– no one likes having to wait in a long line, so make the line part of the show! Circus and fire entertainers delight (and distract!) patrons with Halloween-themed delights.
  • Wandering Entertainment– have jugglers, stilt walkers, or even fire eaters stroll through your event performing for your patrons.
  • Static Shows– our performers occupy a single contained space at your venue or event while patrons stroll by, enjoying the sight of aerialists, hand balancers, and more.
