Daredevil antics and acrobatics in inventive, playful latest work by circus with a flair for the mechanical.
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.
Events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
