Cirque Mechanics "42ft-A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels"

Daredevil antics and acrobatics in inventive, playful latest work by circus with a flair for the mechanical.

Hopkins Center 114 Moore Theater
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Performances

Acrobatics and clowning meet early-industrial mechanical ingenuity in Cirque Mechanics, which delighted Hop audiences with Birdhouse Factory and Pedal Punk. This show centers on an old-time circus with a classic 42-foot ring. That ring is transformed, Cirque Mechanics-style, with such human-powered inventions as a galloping metal horse and a rotating tent frame serving strongmen, tumblers and aerialists. Cirque’s playful, welcoming presence invites all ages to dream and devise with them.
