Harris Center Presents The Return Of SIRO-A With Techno Circus
Moving to the beat of a techno soundtrack, Japan's SIRO-A has broken the world's language barrier with their "non-verbal" performance art - fusing groundbreaking visual effects and physical theatre to communicate with and dazzle audiences across generations. They won the renowned "Spirit of the Fringe" award at Edinburgh and wowed everyone on America's Got Talent, winning a "Golden Buzzer" from Piers Morgan and standing ovation from the audience and judges. The physical performers display their skill and brilliantly executed choreography in sync with two DJs, visual projections and mind-blowing optical illusions. Reaching deep into their technical bag of tricks, they combined electro beats with visual effects, motion, light, dance choreographies and elements of comedy.
Techno Circus by SIRO-A will be presented twice on Thursday, October 25, 2018, at 5 pm and 8 pm. Tickets are $38-$48; Premium $52. Tickets for Children, Students with ID $19-$26.

Special thanks to our event partner, Sea Escape Travel in Folsom.
Back again at the Harris Center with their newest production, SIRO-A's Techno Circus is an absolute treasure trove of delights - and just pure fun.
The ensemble began as six students from Sendai, Japan united by a desire to come up with something new, outside the boundaries of conventional theatre and performance art. Fusing mime, groundbreaking visual effects, and a techno soundtrack to bring their crazy imagination into reality, SIRO-A boldly defines their craft as "the next generation of entertainment;"the group's name SIRO means "white" in Japanese, distinguished by their white-painted faces.
SIRO-A made their first public appearances at festivals in Japan in 2005, followed shortly by Japanese TV features. SIRO-A's biggest live show to date debuted to 30,000 spectators at the Shanghai Expo 2010, where the question came up: "Is that the Japanese answer to Blue Man Group?"
In August 2011, SIRO-A was invited to take the stage at Edinburgh's renowned Fringe Festival and earned the 2011 "Spirit of The Fringe" award in the process.
SIRO-A amazed the world by their performance on America's Got Talent season10, with winning "Golden Buzzer" from Piers Morgan and standing ovation from all notable judges, that has sent them to the live performance at Radio City Music Hall.
So what is it that makes their show so special? SIRO-A is new and varied, innovative and pretty crazy, energetic, cool, and vastly entertaining. The beat of SIRO-A's electronic music hits a visceral nerve. The visual effects, grand illusions, and carefully choreographed routines are masterfully concocted.
SIRO-A has broken the world's language barrier with "non-verbal" performance art, a creative expression of the collaboration between human, technology, and music. Expect to be immersed, surprised, and entertained.
