GIVE ’EM A HAND: Siro-A, performing above in February in France, will be at the Haugh Performing Arts Center in Glendora this Friday.

Often described as Japan’s answer to the Blue Man Group, Siro-A brings a hybrid brand of live entertainment, fusing mime, visual effects and an electronic soundtrack to create a theatrical feast for the senses.

Through dance, mime and pup­petry, the company of six white-faced performers interact with technology in a way never seen before. Their show this Friday at the Haugh Per­forming Arts Center in Glendora is titled “Siro-A: The Technical Digital Comedy Experiment.”

This high-energy show breaks through the language barrier with their non-verbal performance art and physical theatre, dazzling audiences across generations. An expression of the collaboration between humans, technology, and music, the show has been called “pure fun.”

Siro-A makes innovative use of video projection, light animation, laser effects and a pulsating electro beat, weaving grand illusions with their precisely choreographed rou­tines.

Formed in 2002 by a group of high school friends in Mi­yagi Prefecture, Siro-A has steadily gained popularity worldwide, hav­ing performed for more than 30,000 at the Shanghai Expo and winning the Spirit of the Fringe award at the prestigious Edinburgh Festival in Scotland.

“Siro-A: The Technical Digital Comedy Experiment” will hit the stage this Friday at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7. Siro-A will also present “Kidtastic!” on Saturday, March 15, at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. The Haugh Performing Arts Center is located at 1000 W. Foothill Blvd. in Glendora. Tickets are $30 for general audiences, $28 for seniors, $20 for students and $15 for kids 16 and under.
