Cirque Mechanics

Birdhouse Factory

January 31, 2022
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents

Hailed as “the greatest contribution to the American circus since Cirque du Soleil” (Spectacle Magazine), Cirque Mechanics returns with the Philadelphia premiere of Birdhouse Factory, where a group of 1930’s workers are brought together by the most unlikely of events. Enjoy breathtaking acrobatics, zany antics and an enchanting story of laughter, joy and, of course, birdhouses. Inspired by American ingenuity and all things mechanical, Birdhouse Factory is “exceptional, evocative, eye-catching, ear-catching and, to keep the list short, engrossingly entertaining.” (The New York Times)

Please note, this performance includes strobe lights, haze and fog.
