Mechanics Alive! Oct 2019 through 2020
This is the second visit of Cabaret Mechanical Theatre automata to Explora, and there are both new artworks and old favorites included in the collection, which will tour the US as “Mechanics Alive!”
Explora Executive Director Joe Hastings notes that “the Cabaret Mechanical Theatre automata are the epitome of STEAM–Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Each automata is a piece of art, a beautiful mechanism, and a five to ten second haiku. Everyone finds a favorite in the collection, and they just have to share with a friend or family member. I’m a big fan of the “Banana Ripener,” which makes me laugh at my own impatience.”
