Step right up and enter the world of gears and canvas, pulleys and sawdust, galloping metal horses, strongmen, and aerialists—all mystifying and transpiring within the confines of a 42-foot ring. 42FT–A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels is the latest invention of Cirque Mechanics. Celebrating the timelessness of the circus as an evolving art form while innovating beyond the big top’s classic roots, this show melds spectacles both traditional and new. Audiences engage in the story of American ingenuity via mechanical might, with an emphasis on dizzying acrobatics and a fair bit of clowning around.
