2013 Oregon Fire Conclave

Jpeace has been part of the 10 year strong fire ensemble known as Oregon Fire Conclave for the last 5 years.  OFC is an open group that takes all different levels of performers from  never before/beginners to seasoned veterans and creates a large “MORE FIRE” 15 min performance piece with the intention of performing at the Burning Man Arts Festival in the Nevada desert. This year Jpeace is the “Shin” or leader of this group who gathers for rehearsals at least twice a month in preparation for the big show. Oregon Fire Conclave is one of 41 conclaves from around the world that compete for one of the 28 slots available in the great circle. Keep your eyes out for OFC video in July and their performance at the SOAK regional arts festival on the Prindel Creek Farm in Tidewater, Oregon July 18th-21st.

Jpeace the Fire Clown perform’s at Seattle’s largest Halloween massive Freaknight with SuperGeek League!

“Sinister Clown”

Jpeace Love Circus had the pleasure of performing with the “Sinister Circus” of SuperGeek League at FreakNight Festival 2012. Usually this Portland based juggler goes for the more family style of clowning but with an opportunity like this, Jpeace went with the darker sinister vibe. Performing circus feats of juggling, club manipulation, acro, double staffs, and his style of clownery with the powerful ensemble of the SuperGeek League, Jpeace was a fiery sinister fire circus clown! It was a night to be remembered and one to be thankful for!

Sinister Duet!

Jpeace would like to thank his beautiful partner Jilliana for being a superstar hooper, all of the artists of The SuperGeek League, and Freaknight for the opportunity to bring some “sinister” fire clowning and their part in making such an epic event happen!

All the best!

Fire Juggling!
