|Greg Tarlin and Kristi Heath have created a new show called “Fizzical Fizzicks: The Science of Circus”. These two veterans of the circus arts combine traditional circus props, popular toys and some big surprises to help display and explain the properties of the three types of motion: translation, rotation and vibration. Audiences will delight in the performance of traditional circus skills (juggling, stilt-walking, rola bola and unicycling) along with the skills displayed with common toys (yo-yo, hula hoop, pogo stick, ball). There will also be some BIG surprises along the way when giant props are put in motion (a child’s swimming pool spinning on Greg’s fingertip and a gigantic inflatable ball). Three teams from the audience will take part in hilarious short contests involving translation, rotation and vibration. It’s all part of the fun as these people perform simple motions such as spinning on the spot, throwing a ball and bouncing. All the contests emphasize teamwork and fun and once again help to demonstrate how translation, rotation and vibration work. As the finale of the show, Greg and Kristi perform their “Big Circus Trick” atop stilts and tall unicycle. They pass juggling clubs back and forth, spin plates on their heads and knock an ice cream cone out of the mouth of a volunteer. The routine is a culmination of the three types of motion and reinforces the science while amazing with the circus.
