Cirque Mechanics PEDAL PUNK Comes to Peace Center 11/16
From the inventive Cirque Mechanics comes Pedal Punk, a "Steampunk" - inspired acrobatic whirlwind where cycling is the escape from a technology obsessed society. In Pedal Punk, audiences experience the excitement, artistry and thrill that occur when a zany bike shop mechanic interacts with cyclists and bikes, and repairs more than broken pieces. He creates wondrous machines that come to life and inspire the cyclist in all of us to unite with our inner Pedal Punk.
Creative Director Chris Lashua spent most of his career on a BMX bike and inside a German Wheel. This new production showcases his innate passion and fascination for all things bicycles and cycling. The synergy between man and machine, the hallmark of Cirque Mechanics, is exposed in Pedal Punk.
The New York Times called Pedal Punk "exceptional, evocative, eye-catching and grossly entertaining ...in a word, excellent."
