Encore: Cirque Mechanics "Birdhouse Factory"
Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts, Mary Linn Auditorium
Monday, November 19, 2012 @ 7:30 pm
Enter the most unlikely setting for a circus, a factory – where the workers are acrobats and the machines are circus props. A place where spectators will watch a contortionist perform on a turntable powered by unicyclists, they will be captivated by the trapeze artist flying high thanks to the spins of an acrobat inside a giant gear-like wheel and they will be stunned when the trampoline wall artists defy the laws of physics by virtually flying and walking on air. All the while they will be giggling at the antics of the comedic characters, impressed by the acro-dancing and enchanted by the story of laughter, love, flight and birdhouses. Birdhouse Factory was hailed by Spectacle Magazine as “The most important contribution to the American Circus since Cirque du Soleil.”
