Back on Valentines Day, Starfiz travelled to Blackpool to take part in Showzam!


The annual festival’s theme for 2015 was circus and performance, so Katie and Leyla opened the romantic Carnival Ball event with a Moulin Rouge Silks Act. The glamorous and entertaining evening took place in the stunning Blackpool Tower Ballroom, which is the perfect venue for a silks aerial show.

Starfiz received some excellent feedback for the silks performance!

He introduced the first act, Starfiz, a female duo who were fantastic. The glamorous girls climb two lengths of red fabric, suspended from the ceiling, and proceeded to perform in the air, doing the splits and somersaults to a backdrop of sparkly stars and accompanied by the music of Lady Ga Ga, and Tony Bennett as well as the Moulin Rouge song, ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend’. The synchronicity was amazing as they tumbled down the curtains. – Elizabeth Ward, audience member review on ALTBLACKPOOL

“Aerial silks performers Starfiz got the show on the road with a Moulin Rouge routine that left the audience gasping as they plunged to the floor, tied in red silk knots” – Anna Cryer, review for Blackpool Gazette
