About the show
Experience the excitement, artistry and thrill that occurs when a wacky bike shop mechanic interacts with cyclists and bikes. Accompanied by high flying trampoline artists, aerialists, trick cyclists and contortionists, he repairs more than broken pieces, he creates wondrous machines and inspires the cyclist in all of us to become a circus mechanic.
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 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.’
