ABOUT ELECTRIC CIRCUS
Electric Circus is a collaboration between inventor Fred Abels & puppeteer Mirjam Langemeijer.
Electric Circus creates memorable and unconventional robots and uses these in their street performances.
The robots look truly lifelike and are moved by remote control: a technique borrowed from the film-industry known as "animatronics", now mostly replaced by computer-animation.
The use of animatronics in theatre and street performances is not done very often and produces a surprising effect.
The player/operator and the robot mix with the unsuspecting crowd, from there - mostly unnoticed - the robot is directed using the remote control. This allows the robot to immediately respond to the reactions of the audience.Electric Circus has 2 performances with robots: "Dirk" and "Mono"
