Cirque Mechanics Pedal Punk comes to Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts in Charlotte, North Carolina in April
Enter the world of Cirque Mechanics Pedal Punk, a Steampunk-inspired acrobatic whirlwind of a place where cycling is a way to escape the technology obsessed society. In Pedal Punk, we experience the excitement, 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.
Creative Director Chris Lashua spent most of his career on a BMX bike or inside a German Wheel. His fascination with bicycles and passion for cycling are evidenced in this new production. The synergy between man and machine, the hallmark of Cirque Mechanics, is exposed in a magnificent way in Pedal Punk. It is that synergy that The New York Times called “exceptional, evocative, eye-catching and grossly entertaining … in a word, excellent.”
