Triad Circus Company Performing at International Circus Festival

Activate Entertainment has been invited to represent the United States

at St. John’s International Circus Festival this September

WINSTON-SALEM, NC (August 15, 2023) The Activate Entertainment Project is excited to announce that a new piece titled “ROOTED” will be performed in Newfoundland, Canada as a part of the St. John’s International Circus Festival this September. “ROOTED” will blend dance, circus, and music into a cohesive story representing North Carolina and the American South in a way which promotes the diversity and creative community in our region. Activate will be working with a mixture of local and national artists to bring this piece to life.

This piece was invited to be performed at the 6th Edition of the St. John’s International Circus Festival. The show will feature 2 talented artists, with a local creative team. Artists include Dom Sebastian (Greensboro) and Nick Hodge (Las Vegas). The creative team consists of Houston Odum, Amanda Fisk, and Alex Joye Warren. Activate Entertainment has received support from Arts Council of Greater Greensboro and Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County in order to make the trip happen.

"We're so excited to represent North Carolina, and the Triad internationally!” said Houston Odum, founder of Activate Entertainment. “This Festival is the first of many big steps for us to be recognized around the world and for our artists to be seen by influential industry leaders. More importantly, the piece we are creating will craft a new image of the Triad and the American South which breaks down the stereotypes of our communities.”

“ROOTED” will be coming to Greensboro in the Spring of 2024 along with a brand-new Circus Training Program that will be free for participants. This will follow the company’s first statewide tour of their hit show “SOLSTICE” which was seen by 1,000 people this past February and will perform in Durham, Hamlet, and Winston-Salem, NC.
