BODY at Millennium Park
Beakerhead’s feature attraction comes from UK outdoor arts company Walk the Plank. BODY is an immersive after-dark installation that brings you on a journey through the systems of the human body. BODY uses the latest technology to create a deeper understanding of the science of the human form through light, sound, special effects and fire. BODY has been shown at Northern Ireland’s Science Festival and Ireland’s National Science week.
Beakerhead welcomes creators, artists, technology friends, and engineering enthusiasts to Hack-the-House. This collaborative challenge empowers teams of kids 14 and older, supported by a panel of experts, to bring creativity and engineering skills together and ‘hack’ a piece of used household furniture into a sustainably powered machine. You’ll be amazed by the results!
Le Cirque de la Nuit
Catch Le Cirque de la Nuit, Western Canada’s premiere circus troupe all weekend long at Beakerhead. Dynamic performers will surprise and delight your senses as they wander through Century Gardens and the Beaker Bar. It’s a wild and twisted adventure beyond the big top curtain.
