Bevis

Museum of Mystery

Overview

Bevis gives an entertaining look at an odd selection of rarities, a temporary museum of mystery. Applying concepts from astronomy, physics, chemistry, psychology, music, history, and technology together with the circus arts of juggling and magic, Bevis offers an evolving parade of striking pictures. Research into long forgotten tricks and skills of the past is linked with contemporary innovations to produce a show which ignites the imagination.

Pressure sensors, gravity rails, spherical acrylic, micro samplers, pencils, tablecloths, ping pong balls, hairdryers, dice, wooden origami, and a gong are all used in choreographed experiments that inspire laughter and wonder from the audience. Beyond traditional family entertainment, Bevis fits perfectly into any space or program associated with connecting information- schools, libraries, community centers, etc. The show's flexible framework allows for successful performances in many different environments and occasions. At the end, a workshop is included as part of the performance, inviting the audience to participate and learn many of the concepts demonstrated during the show.
