Cirque Mechanics: Zephyr

Student Matinee

Experience this theatrical circus show that harnesses human power to generate an energetic, artful acrobatic performance. Zephyr tells the story of Nigel, mill owner and operator, and his complicated relationship with wind, the natural resource that powers his flour mill. Nigel grapples with tough choices and unintended outcomes with humor and optimism, which lead to acceptance, coexistence, and balance with wind, progress, and his community. 

With direct STEM to STEAM connections through exploration of the construction and design of the machines, performers fly, balance, float on air, and defy gravity in this whirlwind story.
