A symphony of bicycles with human-powered stages

June 9 &10, 2018
Downtown Providence*

“Chock full of joy, ‘Cycle Sonic’ burns brightly with the fires of imagination and ingenuity”
–Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

FirstWorks presents SQUONK OPERA’s celebration of “all things bicycle,” featuring human-powered stages propelled by original chamber rock music! Sprouting bulb-horns and whirligigs, whistles and bells, these parade floats become musical instruments through the swirl and thump of wheel and pedal. As double-decker bike-stages circle the audience, backdrops of undulating flags and 20-foot legs pump with the rhythm of sustainable power. With no carbon footprint, “Cycle Sonic” combines the thrill of a live concert with the world of everyday transit.
