42FT – A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels

Experience the latest invention from the creative minds of Cirque Mechanics with their signature blend of acrobatics, mechanical marvels, and a good bit of clowning around. This new production tells the story of an iconic 42-foot circus ring with talented acrobats and aerialists performing astonishing feats of strength and agility, presenting their mechanical interpretation of traditional circus entertainment. Thrill at the timeless wonder of circus artistry combined with impressive mechanical ingenuity, like a galloping metal horse and a spectacular rotating tent frame. This premiere American circus, which was founded in 2004, finds its roots in all things mechanical and shares the stories of American inventiveness. “The greatest contribution to the American circus since Cirque du Soleil” (Spectacle Magazine). Bring the whole family to this whimsical and witty circus performance!
