Study Guide: Cirque Mechanics: “Pedal Punk”

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 we experience the artistry and thrill that occurs 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 inspires the cyclist in all of us to unite with our inner pedal punk.

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. And the glory…is in the excellence of its performers.”
—San Francisco Chronicle
