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"
