JAMESTOWN – What has 90 wheels, 10 performers, weighs over 3,000 pounds and fits in a 26 foot truck?
The answer is coming to Jamestown when the steampunk circus, Cirque Mechanics, presents Pedal Punk at Reg Lenna Center for The Arts this Sunday at 7 p.m.
Pedal Punk is a Steampunk inspired place where cycling is the way to escape the technology obsessed society. In this live production, excitement, artistry and thrill occur when a wacky bike shop mechanic interacts with cyclists and bikes. He repairs more than broken pieces – he creates wondrous machines and inspires the cyclist in all of us to become a Pedal Punk.
Pedal Punk’s creative team includes two veterans of Cirque du Soleil (Chris Lashua and Steven Ragatz), a co-founder of Los Angeles’ Cirque School (Aloysia Gavre) and Sean Riley, the host of National Geographic’s adventure show, World’s Toughest Fixes.
Spectacle Magazine hailed Pedal Punk as “the greatest contribution to the American circus since Cirque du Soleil.”
