WHAT WE OFFER
We have produced entertainment for countless product launches, theatrical tours, trade shows, fairs, festivals, amusement parks, galas, fundraisers, general sessions and team building experiences.
Bringing a top level cirque show to a ballroom can be a challenge to some! Our shows have garnered us many awards and nominations over nearly two decades in business. We demand excellence from ourselves – and this level of professionalism helps us attract the best performers to our shows. This assures a continuously high level of quality in the entertainment we bring to award banquets, galas and incentive programs around the world.
We offer the widest variety of shows in the industry, thus ensuring the perfect fit for your event. Each show can be adapted and customized to fit your vision.
Make yours truly remarkable, forever etched alongside fond recollections of the usual suspects: funnel cakes, Ferris wheels and pony rides!
Just ask ArtWalk San Diego, the Oregon State Fair, SeaWorld of San Diego – or the 2000 Sydney Olympics…understanding the importance of crafting strong and lasting impressions, these prominent organizations enlisted the help of Imagination Entertainment to thrill and delight audiences with an encounter surpassing even the most demanding expectations.
We’ll transport your audience to whimsical lands with iL CiRCo’s “Viaggio” – a visual and emotional odyssey that will enchant the mind and dazzle the senses. Or add some unexpected aquatic fun with our “Cirque Del Mare” or “The Greatest Showman” themed show that features vibrant vintage style costumes, intricate choreography and a profusion of lights that make the average Ferris wheel pale in comparison. In fact, we’ll create a destination sure to stir the imagination and leave people asking…”I wonder what they’ll do next year!
We love when we get to stretch our wings and bring our passion to a new audience. We find that because we, as artists, are inspired by every culture we interact with, we can dazzle an audience wherever they may be geographically.
Imagination Entertainment has reached audiences all over the world, including most of the U.S., Greece, Mexico, Lebanon, Italy, Bahrain, Canada, and Costa Rica…to name a few! We work with promoters, theater owners and presenters worldwide on our own production of “Viaggio – by iL CiRCo”, as well as our other shows that can be custom tailored for holiday or other themed events.
TRADE SHOWS – Live and compelling entertainment can stop people in their tracks. Engage your clients and strategic partners with our brilliant performances crafted to educate, electrify, and entice potential clientele at your trade booth.
GENERAL SESSIONS – We will bring in the tools that will engage and inspire your audience. We will emotionalize your message to ensure that your event will have dynamic impact long after the session has ended. We make sure to highlight your product, your message, your people with creative development and the execution of the corporate theater performance. Past performances include revealing a CEO as “Spiderman” as he crawled the entire length on the ceiling of a Las Vegas ballroom. A CEO skiing from a video location in the Rockies onto a live custom ski slope built in the ballroom! We can turn your presenters into aerialists, flying them in surrounded by our cast of acrobats, custom fight scenes or flash mobs. These are a few examples of the endless possibilities – we like to heat up the stage to prepare your audience for you, your people, your product and your message.

We thrive when creating special, out-of-the-box ideas to inspire your team to work together, have more fun, and motivate extraordinary results! Let us create and execute a team building event tailored specifically to your company’s needs.

In one relaxed, fun-packed, creative afternoon, your attendees will return to work refreshed, unified, and filled with memories to recall around the water cooler for years to come. Our ‘Trapeze Retreat’ is another way for your employees to feel a new sense of accomplishment as they learn how to fly on the flying trapeze or our ‘Aerial Yoga’ can bring your employees peace and calm.
