Throwing all caution to the wind, the adrenaline-driven daredevils of Cirque Mechanics (42FT, 2019) are back with an all-new mechanical masterpiece: a 20-foot-tall windmill powered by sheer strength! Set on a rotating turntable, there’s practically nothing in Zephyr that won’t spin—including your head—as acrobats brazenly balance atop the windmill’s blades and fearlessly face the Wheel of Destiny. A turbine tug of war between man, nature and machine, Zephyr is a whirlwind of circus that’ll blow you away.
High-flying, free-wheeling fun
, who ruled the west wind and heralded spring.
Cirque Mechanics builds innovative spectacles with an unmistakably Vegas sense of playfulness and grandeur. For every new show, founder and Cirque du Soleil veteran Chris Lashua starts by sketching an elaborate machine—a boiler-trolley, a trampoline-cart, a pedal-driven gantry—that will serve as the onstage centerpiece. Around this mechanical marvel, the ensemble of aerialists, jugglers and gymnasts builds a theatrical circus experience that showcases the relationship between humankind and the machines we create.
