Cirque Mechanics Pedal Punk

Cirque Mechanics presents Pedal Punk, a ­rowdy circus where the mischief is on wheels.

Creator Chris Lashua’s road to the circus ­began with his daredevil skills as a BMX rider. In Cirque Mechanics’ fourth production Chris ­applies his mechanical wizardry to all things pedal-powered. At the heart of the show is a pedal-driven performance apparatus, “The Gantry Bike.” This remarkable creation is a modern day industrial circus caravan.  It moves around the stage with a dynamic and quirky ensemble of equilibrists, funambulists and ­acrobats.

In Pedal Punk you’ll encounter unicycles that fly, wheel acrobats that hover, cyclists that whirl, pole climbers that soar and trapeze ­artists that float.  The show draws inspiration from the ­culture of steam punk, where a post-­apocalyptic world of machines is powered by steam. Pedal Punk’s “steam” power comes from the acrobatic strength of the artists.

Once again, Cirque Mechanics brings modern story telling technique to the circus, while ­staying true to its industrialist aesthetic and its gift for amazing audiences of all ages. Pedal Punk is steam punk circus that will charm you with its story and thrill you with its daring.

 “Intelligently conceived and expertly ­ a word, excellent.” -The New York Times

“The beauty…lies in the generosity with which acts are layered upon each other and the ­superb integration of circus skills with music, light and ­choreography.” - San Francisco Chronicle
