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 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 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.”

The 7 Fingers of the Hand: Cuisine & Confessions
Dance, acrobatics, and a pinch of theatrics are the essential ingredients in this remarkable show that explores life in the family kitchen where lessons are learned, bonds are forged, and secrets are exchanged. In their latest delightfully inventive production, Cuisine & Confessions, The 7 Fingers of the Hand interprets relationships and storytelling as they prepare a meal in a unique and playful way. This Montreal-based group gets right into the heart of the home, using circus acts and acrobatics to depict scenes of family meals and intimate moments. This acclaimed ensemble’s name is a twist on a French idiom, “the five fingers of the hand,” which describes distinct parts moving in coordination toward a common goal. In this case there are seven artistic collaborators who achieve a common goal in creating an amazing production. The highly skilled artists, with their precisely timed stunts, provide the perfect recipe for an unforgettable theatrical event. “A perfect blend with just the right ingredients.” (Huffington Post)
