In partnership with the show artists and producers, we have made the difficult decision to postpone or cancel the Cirque Mechanics performance scheduled for Friday, October 16, 2020 due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19. Beginning August 26, all ticket purchasers will automatically receive a full refund for their order, credited back to the original payment method. This process may take up to three weeks to complete. We are actively working to secure alternate future dates for many of these performances. We will likely announce any rescheduled dates in mid-May of 2021.
Enter the most unlikely setting for a circus: a factory! One where the workers are acrobats and the machines are circus props. Welcome to Birdhouse Factory!
Birdhouse Factory is a simple story of daily life in a “widgets” factory circa 1935 as workers are brought together by the most unlikely of events—a bird accidentally injured by the main steam boiler. The accident and caring for the bird, brings the workers closer together and inspires them to break away from the monotony of the assembly-line. They showcase their true inner talents and abilities by using their bodies and machines to build birdhouses in a more joyous and soulful way.
See a contortionist perform on a turntable powered by unicyclists. Be captivated by the trapeze artist powered by the spins of an acrobat inside a giant wheel. Be stunned as the trampoline wall artists defy the laws of physics. Giggle at the antics of the characters, be impressed by the acro-dancing and enchanted by the story of laughter, love, flight and birdhouses.
Birdhouse Factory was inspired, in part, by the masterful industry murals of Mexican artist Diego Rivera, the outrageous illustrations of cartoonist Rube Goldberg and the slap-stick humor of Charlie Chaplin’s film Modern Times. While these inspirations make Birdhouse Factory artful, nostalgic and funny, the true essence of the show comes from the circus.
