From the inventive Cirque Mechanics comes Pedal Punk, a Steampunk inspired acrobatic whirlwind where cycling is the escape from technology obsessed society. In Pedal Punk you experience the excitement, artistry and thrill that occurs when a zany bike shop mechanic interacts with cyclists and repairs more than broken pieces.

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 magnificently exposed in Pedal Punk. It is that synergy that the New York Times called “exceptional, evocative, eye-catching and grossly entertaining … in a word, excellent.”



Cirque Mechanics combines traditional circus disciplines with new elements to tell a "real world" story with theatricality. The design and exploration of innovative mechanical apparatus and the relationship between performer and machines seen on stage truly make Cirque Mechanics unique.

The show is slated for 7:30 p.m. April 1 at the Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St. Tickets are on sale at artssa.org, $29-$110.
