About the Show
Experience the excitement, artistry and thrill that occurs when a wacky bike shop mechanic interacts with cyclists and bikes. Accompanied by high flying trampoline artists, aerialists, trick cyclists and contortionists, he repairs more than broken pieces, he creates wondrous machines and inspires the cyclist in all of us to become a circus mechanic.
Time Out New York wrote that “with its top notch acts and amazing aesthetics, Cirque Mechanics offers a spectacular ride for hipsters and pipsqueaks alike.” The addition of our innovative strolling pedal driven devices will deliver the fun to the far reaches of the Tixr Yard.
Creative Director, Chris Lashua, ventured to Las Vegas with Cirque du Soleil in 1992. Before that he spent most of his career on a BMX bike or inside a German Wheel. His fascination with bicycles and passion for cycling are evidenced in this production. The synergy between man and machine, the hallmark of Cirque Mechanics, is exposed in a magnificent way in this production. It is that synergy that The New York Times called ‘exceptional, evocative, eye-catching and grossly entertaining…in a word, excellent.”
