French street theater company Plasticiens Volants will take over the much contested space at Parcel 5 on Friday, September 15, and Saturday, September 16, for the hour-long, family-friendly program, "Big Bang." Through the use of massive inflatables flown above audiences by actors on the ground, the show presents a surreal story about creation and human evolution and all of our undying questions. The show also uses projected images, light, shadows, acrobatics, music, and pyrotechnics. Plasticiens Volants is currently on its first US tour.
Performances begin at 8 p.m. both days, and admission is free. Parcel 5 is located at 285 East Main Street. The sixth KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival will take place September 14 to September 23 in and around downtown Rochester. For the full schedule and more information, visit rochesterfringe.com.
