A steampunk-inspired acrobatic whirlwind, Cirque Mechanics’ Pedal Punk portrays a world where cycling is the escape from technology-obsessed society. A Gantry Bike (a giant playground on wheels) is the centerpiece of this show that is about a zany bike shop mechanic helps cyclists repair more than broken bikes. A talented cast, populated with acrobats, clowns, contortionists, trampolinists, aerialists, BMX bike tricksters, jugglers and unicyclists, gives a performance full of pure artistry and athletic thrills that caused Spectacle Magazine to call it “the greatest contribution to American circus since Cirque du Soleil.” Ages 9 and older.
