Squonk Opera has created outdoor spectacle around the world, with reviews that include “insane majesty” from The Scotsman and “surreal and poetic” from USA Today and ingenious, hallucinatory, hypnotic” from New York Times. Squonk’s new outdoor light spectacle explodes with human-powered cycles, propelled by their original chamber rock music…and their own legs! Sounding joyful music, these 2-story parade floats sprout bulb-horns and banners, percussion and whirligigs. Giant puppet bikers, undulating flags and 20-foot legs pumping with the rhythm of sustainable power combine the thrill of live performance with the uncelebrated world of the everyday. On Friday, April 7, Squonk will lead the Kinetic Procession, which kicks off at 8pm from Rash Field, ending at the Aquarium. They will make their way back to Sondheim Fountain, where they will perform at 11pm. On Saturday, April 8, Squonk will perform at Sondheim Fountain at 9pm and 10:30pm.
