Cirque Mechanics presents 42ft: A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels

Saturday, May 30, 2020, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM


At the center of every circus we find a 42ft ring full of thrills, laughs and excitement. In 42ft: A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels, Cirque Mechanics dares us to leap into the circus ring to experience the endurance of this evolving art form.
The shows’ unique mechanical interpretation of the traditional and its story full of the reality and lore of the historic one-ring circus, create a welcoming place, much like a big top, where we can be amazed. The action in 42ft is displayed with theatricality and a modern sensibility, showcasing a galloping mechanical metal horse and a rotating tent frame for strongmen, acrobats and aerialists.
Cirque Mechanics was founded in 2004 by Boston native and German Wheel artist Chris Lashua, after the success of his collaborative project with the Circus Center of San Francisco, Birdhouse Factory. Cirque Mechanics quickly established itself as a premiere American circus, with its unique approach to performance, inspiring storytelling and innovative mechanical staging. Spectacle Magazine hailed it as “the greatest contribution to the American circus since Cirque du Soleil.”
