  • A Circus on Wheels | Stanford Live
    someone goes across the stage and is lifted is as much the magic as the fact that they are being lifted Watching how the mechanism lowers and lifts somebody is what we want to show off Steampunk is a trendy idea but it s been part of Cirque Mechanics makeup for years We re not gluing on gears or levers It s a really authentic mating of our performance and the steampunk genre Lashua said adding that until a couple of years ago presenters were still asking him to throw on a little more Spandex and face paint Uh no that s not what we do With last October s advent of the Pedal Punk show its machines were absolutely connected to the bicycle world At the heart of what we were doing was trying to go back to the magic being simple and reliable and recognizable Over the years he explains they ve become better at building devices that are relatable and fitting into a performance context choreographing the movement needed say to turn a crank or to lift a performer During their 90 minute shows they try to break the fourth wall The Gantry Bike will be turned sideways so it extends past the stage toward the audience As the shows develop we continue to look for new choreography and new acrobatics Lashua adds using social media as well as word of mouth Pedal Punk is fast and like most circuses not without risks With 10 performances a week and a lot of one night stands staying sharp is a challenge If you re cautious and careful if you train with safety lines and spotters you minimize these risks he said The other necessity is managing expectations If your set includes a big trampoline the audience expects elaborate stunts smaller trampoline smaller expectations The company members wear many hats working as everything from choreographers to directors On tour everyone helps with the apparatus We re all involved says Lashua Their composer Michael Picton also directs the 100 piece orchestra that provides the recorded score for the show Picton builds in the rhythmic and dynamic flow by looking at performance videos You want to create something that has a synergy a layering and complexity that s not possible if you take a piece of music and try to impose movement on top of it Lashua says You have to start at both sides and work toward the middle not just with the music but with the entire production Similarly the choreographer Aloysia Gavre has a lot of experience with acrobatic acts she was with the fabled Pickle Family Circus and she keeps a mental inventory of tricks that will add a pop of excitement here or there She and the writer Steven Ragatz have been on all four Cirque Mechanics productions including the recent BoomTown which evoked the Gold Rush era alluding to workers by evoking the visual style of artist Diego Rivera In all of the shows Lashua
