Welcome to Birdhouse Factory, a most unlikely setting for a circus where workers are acrobats and machines are circus props. A contortionist performs on a turntable powered by unicyclists and trampoline wall artists defy the laws of physics. Birdhouse Factory was inspired, in part, by the masterful industry murals of Mexican-born artist Diego Rivera, the outrageous illustrations of cartoonist Rube Goldberg and the slapstick humor of Charlie Chaplin’s film Modern Times. Cirque Mechanics returns to Popejoy with the true essence of the circus, replete with nostalgia and humor.
