Description

Be amazed as the kinetic circus performs epic feats of strength, agility, and balance! Inspired by Alexander Calder’s famous Circus, students make mechanical characters from found materials such as wire, wood, corks, and springs. Through an intensive, hands-on process, students learn how simple machines (cranks, pulleys, and wheels) transform and magnify energy to enable human and animal forms to move in different situations. The workshop culminates in a short performance.
