Explore a “Steampunk” Acrobatic Whirlwind with Cirque Mechanics Pedal Punk at the Rozsa

From the inventive Cirque Mechanics comes Pedal Punk, a “rowdy circus where the acrobats are on wheels!” Pedal Punk is a “Steampunk” – inspired acrobatic whirlwind where cycling is the escape from technology-obsessed society, where the excitement, artistry, and thrills occur when a zany bike shop mechanic interacts with cyclists and bikes and repairs more than broken pieces. He creates wondrous machines that come to live and inspires the cyclist in all of us to unite with our inner Pedal Punk. Cirque Mechanics Pedal Punk comes to the Rozsa Center stage on Saturday, April 22, at 7:30 PM.
